You’re allowed to have days where you don’t accomplish anything because you can’t find the perfect words to string together or find any inspiration. You’re allowed to have days where you don’t leave the couch because everything else just feels like a hassle. You’re allowed to have days where you can’t be bothered to wash a dish or do the laundry. You’re allowed to have an unproductive day.

You’re allowed to have off days.

Don’t beat yourself up every time you experience a rough day, there will be days you’re suppose to get a piece complete or have an assignment done, but you mentally can’t do it. There will be times you will miss a deadline or not have a magnificent day of content to produce, but it’s not the end of the world.

Some days you need a break, some days your brain just isn’t working the way you want it to, the words aren’t flowing and you can’t find any inspiration. Those days will happen and those days will pass.

When the rough days come and go they will open up new and exciting days. They will lead to days where you have so many ideas zipping around in your head you have to write them all down so you don’t forget. There will be days where you are inspired by everything you see in life and you walk around with a big cheesy grin on your face.

There will always live through the highs and lows in life.

There will always be days that you can’t stand and wish you could delete the memory of it from your life, but the good thing about those days is that they will pass, they always pass. Time keeps moving whether you want it to or not.

Embrace the hard days, the uninspiring days, the days you can’t be bothered to do anything because as much as those days suck, they are only temporary.

They aren’t going to last forever and they will pass.

You’re allowed to give yourself a break. You’re allowed to take a day to rest. You’re allowed to not be perfect. You’re allowed to be human.

Take the weight of the world off your shoulders and give them a break. Realize it is only an off day and it isn’t the end of the world.

You will overcome this day and you will own the next day. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
