It’s been a while…
I generally don’t post unless I have something crafty, thrifty or creative to share.
Hence the silence.
That’s the thing about creativity.
It ebbs and flows.
Mine’s been on a
three six month ebb.
I’m feeling uninspired and tired.
Just not myself.
It’s like the things that used to motivate and drive me just don’t anymore.
Blog hits, being featured on blogs or in magazines used to be the end-all, be-all. (Please don’t misunderstand that last sentence…it sounds obnoxious…but I’m simply sharing what used to motivate me).
But now it just seems frivolous and silly.
I feel like I’m on the verge of heading in a new direction, but my compass is broken.
My son leaving for college threw me for a real loop.
It totally messed with my equilibrium and I can’t get my footing back.
Everything is different.
Yes, I still have two children at home that need me.
But being teenagers, the need is more of the transportation variety than the “mommy, let’s hold hands and pick flowers and read stories” variety.
I’m feeling a bit lost.
Like I was once the life of the party and now I’m just the weird chick in the corner.
So I’m waiting.
And trying to figure out what’s next.Pinterest
I realize there are way more important things going on in the world than my creative dry spell and lack of direction.
Goodness knows there are people out there who are hurting and suffering with real problems.
But this is what’s on my heart at the moment.
Thanks for listening.
