Really? Can I just be UNINSPIRED for a change?

OK… I am just as guilty as the next person on this.  I write these blog posts and usually wait until something really philosophical or inspiring hits me to write about.  And then I started using Facebook.  Don’t get me wrong… I really enjoy all my friends.  But we all (me included) seem to have a penchant for wanting to post “inspirational stories” or “inspiring quotes” or “inspired photography/art”.

Now I’m not knocking inspiration.  It’s the food of a good day, a great buzz for the body when you’re feeling down  and I’m sure somewhere there’s some inspirational research that tells us how good it is for our health.

But every now and again I like to let out my inner cynic and just say “do I really have to be inspired right now?”  My good friend Cheryl has an awesome inner snark that comes out from time to time reminding me that it’s ok to just be snarly at the world.  It’s good to laugh from the sarcastic side of the fence from time to time.  It reminds you that the goodie-two-shoes always got it in the end at school.  Phew – dodged that bullet!

So here’s the deal – I’m just gonna sit here and be uninspired for a while.  Hope you don’t mind.



  1. I’m often uninspired…especially with hackneyed phrases like “making a difference”..thank you:)

  2. Three thumbs up to not being inspired. It should be in the Declaration of Independence. ” … life, liberty, and the pursuit of flatline-worthy meh’ness.”
