I wanted to pop in here and express how much I've been struggling but also really learning new things about myself recently.
I'm based in CO, close(ish) to Denver. I haven't been able to do a whole lot of traveling since before November of last year/2022. It's been a really big bummer creatively, as I find myself just churning out ideas and content when I travel by far the most.
But I realized I'm not going to grow, I'm not getting anywhere if I let myself stop trying because the circumstances aren't exciting etc. So the past 2 months I've been pushing myself to go out and shoot video/photo once a week. Usually for an hour. That's it. I am such a firm believer that it's important to just TRY. or START. I can't say I feel that I'm creating/making/shooting anything particularly amazing. But I'm doing something, and that will always be better than making excuses and lapsing into a creative rut.
Whatever you guys do or like to do... Continue on doing it :) Travel is so inspiring and I am excited to be able to do more of it... But I'm continually having to remind myself I can still enjoy life and experience and capture new things even without a huge change of scenery. And I think it's important for all of us to remember that!
Travel highs are such a real thing! But I'm trying to capture and feel more appreciation for the smaller experiences in life as well <3
