    Default Please help me to feel inspired again??

    It sucks going day after monotonous day feeling nothing but apathy and emptiness.

    It seems to have been months since I've reveled in the joys of life. I mean I still get bursts of powerful emotions, like maybe once every two weeks, but otherwise I live in a haze. I want to feel again, but something's taken a hold on my spirit, dampening it. I want to create, but as soon as I sit down to write or paint the energy has passed; it goes from my heart and soul straight to my overanalyzing, self conscious head.

    I know this sounds stupid and pathetic but can anyone give me any tips on how to be inspired by the here and now instead of my darkening and fearful imagination?

    I know this is intermediate level, but I really like these guys- actually I really only know her, but they're both really awesome dancers:

    I know they have lindyhop all over the world, you just have to google for a venue in your area

    ENFPs do help me get away from the emo-itude.

    And where'd the Lindyhop come from? Like 20's jazz?

    when i was about 20 yrs old, my creativity shifted from drawing concept art to trolling on the internet. but i am still creative. i am kidding, but my point is, that your inner creations (whatever your should wants to give birth to) may have become unrecognizable to you, as your mind holds on to the concept, that it should repeat something like that which it has created before. so then, "wanting" to be creative is part of the problem, because it's a concept of the mind. i feel inspired by human demands/opportunities (cause). if i can help someone to understand why suicide may not be the best idea, that's better than drawing an image with a guy with a big sword ..

    Big band music, a little different than jazz-Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, etc. So, the term Lindyhop comes from Lindenburg Johnson hopping all over the US in his zeppelin thingy, although the dancing etiology itself I have no idea about- just that it's 100% American- Not too many other dances can claim this and that it was originally created by African Americans. The concept of flipping ones partner (aka air steps or aerials) was invented by one guy named Frankie manning who passed away this year. That is a whole other sect of Lindy.

    Since you're an F, you need to get involved in activities which puts you in touch with people who inspire you. Get involved with a local meetup group of interest to you.
