So… this past week my time-management skills and work-life balance were a little (a lot) off kilter.
I “glanced” at my Make Art Everyday book, everyday… but I was so brain tired and emotionally drained that I did NOTHING.
Saturday came and work had slowed some, I’d processed some emotional upheaval, and 15 had a BFF over. Suddenly, I found myself at loose ends with a wandering mind and restless hands. Voila!! Time for some ART PROMPTS.
So I didn’t make art everyday, but I still made ART!
Lesson for me (always): progress not perfection.
Did I follow My Plan perfectly? No.
Did I stumble and procrastinate? Yes.
Did I get it done? Yes.
Life is messy. Some days my “Best” is not so great. Some days my “Best” is Awesome! … and some days I just show up and make it to bedtime without creating a bigger mess.
Those really “messy” days are full of pain and “shoulds” and “I’ll never be good enough”…. and THOSE are the days I have to work really hard to love myself, so I can make it to my productive, awesome days.
This week had more messy days than usual, but I got in my Awesome on Saturday and made it up to myself with Art ❤️.
I know it’s been AGES since I’ve Blogged. Apologies to the few faithful followers.
I think we can all agree 2020 has been a challenge.
A shout out to those who are taking the 2020 challenge as an opportunity to embrace their inner strength and forge ahead! For myself, I vacillate between”forge ahead!” and “hide my head in the sand!” (Or under a blanket…
However you are making it through: feeling successful, stuck, or just hanging on… props for NOT GIVING UP.
Just another in a string of Holidays spent in isolation.
My apologies for the long absence. My job in Home Healthcare has been CRAZY the past month and 2020 in general has been a struggle in many ways: mentally, emotionally, and physically.
I like to share positive changes and new growth, but so far my life is all about keeping my head above water and my depression and anxiety at bay. I have been somewhat successful: as in only a few Anxiety meltdowns, and usually keeping a smile on my face.
How are YOU doing half-way through 2020?
Are you still in isolation mode?
Connecticut, USA is starting to open up, and friends are still anxious about socializing. The COVID guidelines have business in a state of constant fear of being shut-down by any complaint.
What are you doing to keep your spirits up?
If you’re in the USA, how are you getting through these Holidays that are not feeling like holidays?
