How To Find Inspiration Again

You're not tired, you're uninspired.

How To Find Inspiration Again

It happens to the best of us. We fall into a slump and we do not know how to get out of it. We are not too sure what to do next or how to get where we want to be. There are a few ways that we can find ourselves in the spirit of goal crushing again and they range from chats with friends to coffee dates. Check out 5 steps to inspiration below!

1. Make a list

Sit down and have an honest conversation with yourself. What do you want to accomplish? What are your big goals? Who do you want to become? Answering these questions might help get your creative juices flowing so you can find your next step.

2. Send a text or email

It is always hard to commit to sending that first text. Sometimes it is because you are scared and you are unsure what the outcome will be but you will never know until you try. Do not be afraid to put yourself out there to see what opportunities can be created!

3. Create an organized environment

A clean room or workspace can work wonders for the brain. Not only will you feel great about having a clean and organized space to work in but you also will be less distracted by your mess and will be able to focus on your work. A great tactic is to set a timer for 20 minutes each day and speed clean as much as you can in that amount of time. Soon enough your entire space will be organized!

4. Find an accountability buddy

Having a friend or mentor that will help encourage you and keep you on track is another great way to keep up the momentum. Achieving your goals is not a one-man show and requires the help and support of others. Let them know what you are trying to accomplish and ask them to check in with you on a regular basis so you can share what steps you've taken to achieve your goals and ask for help when you need it!

5. Do something for yourself

At the end of the day, you are most important. Sometimes finding inspiration starts when we feel we are at our best. Take yourself on a coffee date, get your nails done, or bake a cake, but find something that makes you feel good inside so you can bring that positive energy into your quest for goal crushing.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
