I don’t know about you, but this year has just been flying by. I don’t even know where February went. All of sudden it is March.
February was a rough month on a creative and on a personal level. It is actually hard to separate the two with me. What I create is so connected to what is or isn’t going on in my personal life. I’ve suffered from a lack of motivation that stems from not knowing what it is I want to do next. I have also been overwhelmed with many ideas that I struggle to start. I don’t know where to start. Then there is feeling as though nothing I do will be good enough or note worthy enough. It can be very hard to create things when battling inner demons.
What goals, if any, do I set for myself for March? What is it that I want to achieve?
I’ll need to sleep on that for now.
It is very late and I need to go to bed, but I don’t necessarily feel tired. I’m trying to steer more people to my shop and get my artwork and jewelry sold. The porcelain pieces are coming along nicely. I still need to handpaint them. I’m going to introduce rings into the shop within the coming weeks. They are going to be very boho and very cute.
I need to get back to painting though. I often ask myself,” Will I ever animate again?” and “Will I expand on my marionette story??” I just keep plugging away hoping that something will catch the eye or start a trend. It is rough staying positive throughout the growth and hardwork, but I know that payoff and recognition is JUST around the corner.
The beautiful butterfly goes through a long but peaceful transformation but the Phoenix must set itself a blaze before it can rise again renewed. Which am I?
Until next time,
