yesterday i had a case of the blah’s. you know where you sit there and look around and can’t concentrate long enough on anything. even looking at my studio seemed overwhelming. i think the going, going, going started to catch up with me. so i did the best thing to do in that situation. i took the day off. i took my girls outside, i cleaned my kitchen, i took a few moments to just breathe. and today i feel sooooo much better. i am learning to give myself permission to rest and take care of the other important things in my life. i know that if i would have forced it yesterday, i would have only gotten more frustrated.
balance feels difficult at times. but i think i am learning to listen to my heart. when i start getting overwhelmed, i need to step back a minute and see if there is anything else in my life that is being neglected. then i can come back to my creative endeavors refreshed and ready to go.
