There have been days where I have hit the proverbial, “bottom” in my life. That place that you are just done, on empty, broke down on the side of the road, in the middle of a snow storm, at dusk, with no coat. Where the end of self meets pavement is what I call this!
Life is full of changes isn’t it? It is always changing, and I wasn’t always the best with change. However, maybe the acceptance of change is something that comes with age, Like, “yeah, I have seen this before” kinda wisdom that only comes with experience. I truly don’t know. So much easier to bend with change than let it break you.
What I do know for sure is this…WHATEVER storm you are going through, (fill in the blank here-job, cancer, relationships, no purpose ) YOU NEED TO NAME THAT STORM, pick up yourself, dust yourself off…and WALK Out of that storm!!!
YOU keep going, surround yourself with people that lift you up, support you, encourage you, and not naysayers. Naysayers are going to keep you broke down on the side of the road taunting you saying, “told you to fuel up,” “I told you, you aren’t going to make it.”
The other day, I was just in a bit of a creative lull. Sort of like, “Writer’s Block, for the writer. So, I perused around on the world wide web…looking for a few blogs that would get my creative bum in gear.
After about an hour of reading and perusing I had to run to Hobby Lobby to get a pack of blank Thank you cards. They were bustling with all sorts of stocking new merchandise, and I literally got lost with their NEW home decor! https://www.hobbylobby.com/
After All the Inspiration, and with the Thank you cards in hand, I headed back to work! I got back to the studio, sat directly down at the jewelers bench and made five new pieces of jewelry! After My trip to Hobby Lobby, I have started re-arranging furniture…and wall space to make room for a few of their Lovely Wall Decor!
Sometimes you just need to be inspired by new things and new places, walk away, get some perspective, take a break!
So, next time you have a “creative lull” go and get Inspired! As for me, i can’t wait for the next “creative lull” to go to Hobby Lobby for re-decorating! I’ll update pictures of that soon!
