Happy New Year!
In a society that pushes us to be productive all the time, it sure feels weird to stop.
A snow-week post Christmas really threw me off. Emotionally and physically. The go go go and then stay has completely unmotivated me for anything productive that relates to business. I've tried to go into the studio and work several times but just end up standing around or generally not being in the mood.
You can't force creativity.
I hardly made a thing when we were in lockdown. There were plenty of artists on social media showing off all of their creative productivity but I just couldn't. I sorta feel that same way now with folks posting about feeling all rested and diving into the new year with enthusiasm. I'm still tired. My mind struggles to work as if it knows it's winter and I should hibernate.
It seems the only thing I'm feeling like doing is reading books, watching shows, playing games, cooking food, making puzzles, and taking naps. And coloring. Stuff that doesn't require thought or planning. Wintery restful things.
We are now having our second snow storm of the season, (already), and I'm once again stuck home feeling unmotivated. So I will rest until I feel inspired and have energy to create all the new things that are rolling around in my head.
Worry not dear Daydreamers...there are lots of new pretty things coming later in the year. And there are still many things to be had on my website!
