We've all been where you are including myself. I am now at a time in my life where I try to be just happy being me. I try to live in the moment and think of today only. I try no longer to question why. I sing silly songs, I talk to my dogs and sing to them too. I have my little haven outside, it's not perfect but it's mine.I have a room full of dollhouses and am trying to create my own little town. I have an art room full of everything you could create with . I run my own little shop in my town where I live and there's never enough time to just sit and do everything I'd like. But when I do feel like it ....everything I need is there waiting for me so I turn my back on the laundry , dishes, and weeding and I go upstairs to have some time out and be creative. Most time's I'm not sure what I'm going to work on . It just happens. There are many things in life that bring me down too but I escape that stuff with my singing, my pets, a good book, a game on the internet, my collage art or my dollhouses. It doesn't have to mean anything to anyone else....just to yourself.
Amazing!! Simply whimsical and amazing!
Wow I can relate so much to what you're going through. I really have to push myself lately to be creative. When I do, I'm happy but it's been a challenge. You're a beautiful writer... perhaps that is your next calling?Cheers!Holly
What a beautiful selection of photos for your post. We all have been where you are now. Sometimes you just need a break from everything. It will be there waiting for you. You can pick up your pen or your paint brush whenever the whim hits you. Just be and enjoy the solitude. Know that life is precious, as you have said before and in it there is so much to be grateful for. I love to be outdoors when I am in a slump. Gardening, riding my bike, taking photos on walks, or going to the beach or just walking the dog. For some reason I can think more clearly when I am alone and out of doors. I feel more free and there is no clutter around to fog my thoughts. No distractions, no phones, no computer, no tv, no kindle, just the birds and the water and the sounds of summer. Don't be so hard on yourself. Just be and take the time to do the things that make you happy. Maybe you want to learn how to knit, speak a language, how to grow vegetables or how to cook, anything. Take a break from the everyday stuff. Leave those dishes, the laundry and take some "me" time. A great big hug to you! You only get one life so LIVE it. I love this quote from Danny Kaye;“Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can”
WOW ~ First thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me your lovely note!2nd ~ I was sad 2 hear you've lost your Mojo BUT it will come back. That happened to me last year while I was working FT and it did not leave any time for my art. But slowly in the back of my mind the inspiration started to come back. I just lived, loved, and laughed and it came.SpOOky Hugs,cK :-)
If you like to draw, then just people-watch. Sit at the mall or anywhere, and wait for them to do something dumb. Then draw it. Doesnt matter if you draw well or not, sometimes a dumb drawing of people doing dumb things can be brilliant. Haven't you seen all the stick figure comics lately? Much of it is based on life.There's a billion things to make with crafts. Get goin!
Wow. you are all truly amazing people. And, Im so happy I know ya!!! You all gave me some great ideas.. Im actually starting to feel alittle bit better all thanks to you. Thank you for the time you spent writing to me!!!!! I loved every word!!!!
This looks like a very creative post to me! I don't you've lost your muse. Sometimes we take breaks, but creativity is lurking inside waiting for us.
Dear Lola...I saw your post on A Fanciful Twist, and came to check out your blog...I hope by now your Muse has returned, but I truly understand...we lost our home and animals to a fire a couple of years ago, and I didn't think I would ever get mine back, but, slowly but surely, she returned...or maybe I should say "they", as I think I have nine little Angel Kitty Muses, now...I still have rough patches where I'm not creating and have to make myself do something, and that in itself seems to inspire me...I'm your newest follower...come visit me if you can!Hugs,Anne
