Life gets busy. In my case, there are seven lives that get busy and a new puppy to boot. Yea we are a little crazy, but its worth it.
Every year I go through a time period where I unplug, shut down and literally stop creating for myself. I continue to create for others and enjoy my commissioned work, but there is some mojo missing from within. I don’t know why or how I let myself get like this, but it never fails. I blame it on the dreary skies and cold weather for months on end (we get to enjoy in Pittsburgh). This is a lame excuse.
The real reason is getting busy with the mundane and self created worries/fears which takes away my soul. Don’t get me wrong, we have Good busy too, it’s the other busy and worries that are self created that truly block any form of motivation I can muster.
Thankfully I have some very creative people in my life that have energized me to get off my ass, get over myself and start creating again. As of lately I can’t get enough of art. I have been doing things that I have never considered trying – and it is opening up the floodgates to my creative mind. Nothing that I am doing is ground breaking and it may not even be good, but I’m creating which is all I want…
