Slump No More

I've had my fair share of inspiration droughts in my lifetime and we all agree they're not the most desired of circumstances to be in, nobody likes them. But, just because the iron is not hot for you to strike does not mean that it will never be again. Maybe you're being asked to plant seeds elsewhere...

I am an absolute creative at heart, my mind concocts mad schemes and plans and my heart feels their pulse and squeals when they come to life. Every phase of your endeavors, every time you swing from one end of the pendulum to other, is a necessary step in your own personal evolution. Acceptance is what makes this process kinder.

Share on Facebook and Pinterest so your friends know the scoop too!

The term 'creative block' to me is a funny one as I see people use it more as an excuse, separating themselves from the energy form that is pottery or makeup or knitting when there is nothing you are not, especially creativity. Creativity flows and will always, it's your choice to be receptive and allowing or not. 

It's extremely easy to get frustrated and angry at the fact that you feel uninspired and like a fizzy drink that's now room temperature with no cap on, flat. While frustration and anger are better than sadness you really don't have to feel hostile about your situation, a little bit of patience and personal insight can really go a long way. Having a clear vision of what you want and where you want to end up is a marvelous thing and I don't want you to loose sight of that as it's valuable (go hard or go home I say), I just want to remind you that however which way you're going to get there has as much even more value than the end product. As corny as it may sound, nothing beats the roller coaster that's going to take you there.

For me I have my massive dreams that are out of this world that hardly anyone actually knows about. How exactly I'm going to get there? God knows. As of late I'm choosing everyday to let it unfold naturally. Nobody ever had fun pushing against the current, it's fierce and unforgiving at times but letting go and allowing yourself to flow with what comes best and dealing with situations when they arise is much sweeter. Keep in mind that flowers don't race each other to be the first to bloom. They take their time and make sure that they have had enough of everything they need in order to make their grand debuts.

Now, you're in a slump with one thing and it can't seem to break out of it no matter how hard you try and it's causing a ripple effect on everything else in your life. Want to know the best thing you can do? Distract yourself from it, change your course, shake up what you're doing not in hopes that you'll find your lost inspiration for that one thing but because you deserve to have a good time no matter what. Forget about it! If it's not serving you, release it and then when the timing is right your spark will return once again bearing gifts and fruits you didn't even know you planted.

Having new experiences and situations come into your life does not have to change your end goal, choose to rather see it as new wealth in new forms. Being open and accepting to letting whatever must unfold is going to relieve your mind from it's tireless shifts of overthinking and stress. Thoughts hold a power no action ever could so start treating them like that. Every time you desire something you send that vibration out into the Universe and if you keep that channel clear and open the Universe has no choice but to deliver.

Stop looking at what isn't working and focus on what is. I can guarantee you've got a hell of a lot more going for you then you actually realise.

Love, Delilah

The Start Of The Rest Of My Life

Welcome to my first ever post on my new blog The Resplendent Lioness!I have been working on many aspects of this blog for over the past week but to finally sit down and write my first is a very lovely feeling.
Only just recently have I recognised that as long as I can write I am deeply satisfied. I still crave intensely many MANY wonders, writing just gives my experience a sense of purpose that other loves just don't. The best way I can describe it is as if  I am the whole universe, writing is the sun, and my many other joys are planets and stars. All are important and make up the whole universe, this is key. Stars and new planets can be discovered but there is only one sun.  The complete source of warmth, bringing light to every part of me.
My desires to venture into the blogging world have only come about recently and suddenly but I believe in divine timing and this could not have entered my life at a more excellent time. I asked for a summer romance and I got handed a blog. My oh…

18 Life Changing Lessons I Learnt In 2018

Here we are again, the end of a book and this time it so happens to be the novel that was 2018. A lot occurred in the past 12 chapters and 365 pages and for all I find peace with and am grateful.
Moments have been filled with pleasure, some with agony, some with sadness, elation, shock, glee, gloom, mild insanity, only to name a few otherwise we'll be here for the whole of 2019 if I try to list all the adjectives I've felt recently. I actually really enjoy watching the pendulum swing every which way asking you ever so politely with a kick up the butt to keep and never stop progressing. So to sum it up my year was filled with a lot of butt kicking.
I used to HATE the thought of new years eve and even birthdays so much that I'd get emotionally and physically distressed about them. It meant that the clock kept ticking and chapters kept ending, a concept my little eleven year old self didn't want to have to accept. Ever. It's only been this year that I've embraced th…

The 10 Albums That Transcended In 2018

Albums and EPs that I listened to non-stop in 2018 and you should listen to too!My favourite 10 releases in 2018 that features artists you will immediately fall in love with.

I spend a decent amount of my time admiring the artistic expression of music. It is something that I hold very close and very, very dear to my heart. Along with writing, music brings the most indescribable and monumental feelings of pure elation and raw electricity.
My favourite genre of music is the kind that leaves me feeling like I just saw through space and time in the matter of minutes and now I know every secret to the universe... so basically I'll go for anything that makes me feel like I'm high.

2018 was a year of some spectacular breakthroughs in music from new artists entering the scene or familiar faces re-inventing what they have to offer. Now, more then ever you're bound to find someone somewhere on the globe making something to cater to your very specific likes. I can't guarantee you…
