I have been totally letting my blogging go lately. I usually have ideas swimming through my head, enough so that I need to jot them down, but lately I have been feeling muted and blah. I just recently went back to work after being on leave ( a little too soon I might add) and I just feel like the landscape of my life has grayed a bit. It takes a lot more energy to do a lot less these day and my tolerance for BS is pretty low as well... all these things combined have made for a pretty lackluster creative flow as of late. So what do I do? I complain about it. Here is where my moment came this week. Convo as follows:
@TheArtistsHouse This whole "working" thing has totally made me behind in my quilting!
@PrimandPropah That's alright. I'm not going anywhere ;)
@TheArtistsHouse You ever get in a funk where you look at your sewing machine and you're like, Meh, too much trouble? That's me lately.
@PrimandPropah No, that never happens to me, but I'm weird that way. I honestly love to sew, all the time ;)
I have a million projects I need to finish... cuffs for readers, steps in a quilt along, a multitude of crafty posts that I have started but just never finished... Lately, every day I think about this list of "To-Do's" that I am holding myself too, like a job, one that is a chore. What I really need to do is look at this whole kit 'n caboodle like it really is, my labor of love. You know what Angela? I love to sew too! I love to blog about it! It shouldn't be a chore, something I begrudgingly do. It should be what excites me and makes me happy. I am reminded of that Life is Good slogan "Do what you like, like what you do"... but I'll take it one step further "Do what you love, love what you do"... Words to live by.
PS. This week's pride and joy! I cared for my new Bonsai tree so much that I got my first bloom which in the dead of Winter is an inspiration in and of itself.
