I feel like there is a giant clog in the drain of my ability to express myself. There are so many stressors that are not expressed and get logded somewhere in the creative process, clogging up the works of free expression. This is supposed to be a time of Happiness and JOY and I am stuck in a quagmire of gluey depression. There I said it. I would encourage you to say it as well if it is happening to you. I think its the best and healthiest way to move past it and get the drain open again.
New years Resolutions?
I resolve to honor my feelings, and pay attention to my need to create. I will pay attention to those coping skills that help me feel good about myself.
I will make a business plan. I am not sure what that is or what that looks like but I think I want to figure it out.
I will have a garden. I will have a vivarium and raise caterpillars. I will learn all I can about BUGS and make them. Well, only God does this, but you know what I mean. I will pay attention to what is blocking me from being successful and try to work to remove those BLOCKS.
I will take Chances.
I will not make my happiness dependant upon others. I will take responsibilty for my own emotional well being.
I will make patterns of my dolls and offer them for sale.
I will make a better forum for taking photograhs of my work.
I will eat less cookies. Maybe.
