Running on Empty???

Do you ever feel like you are running on empty?  Do you ever feel like you are in a rut and can't motivate yourself to do the things that need to get done?  Do you ever sit with all the materials out for a creative project in front of you but can't find inspiration to create?
When I'm in a rut, when I'm running on empty I feel like there's no end in sight, I feel like the drought will last forever.  You get the picture right?  Have you ever been in a rut?  We all know that even though it feels like it will never end when you love what you do you know that's not true, right?

Have you ever taken a minute to think about why we go through these times of running on empty?  I am no expert, but I have been doing some thinking and have been trying to figure out the purpose behind these times of drought.... I don't have the answer!  No really, there is no correct answer.  We all go through these times for different reasons.  Maybe it's because there are some stressors in your personal live that you didn't expect, or maybe you have been running yourself into the ground and haven't taken time to slow down and rest.  Maybe it's because you're on the brink of a light bulb moment and you just need some time to see clearly and process the thoughts in your head.  Regardless of the reason we need to embrace the times when we are running on empty because you never know what's on the other side of that rut waiting for you.
If you ever feel like you're running on empty, I encourage you to work through it by taking some time to quiet your body, mind and soul and embrace the emptiness!  You'll be amazed what can happen.
