I've got a confession to make: my all-or-nothing, perfectionist streak that has got me stuck in my tracks. I want to lose the baby weight, purge my home, make all of our food from scratch, sew a wardrobe for myself and two boys, undertake a number of home improvement projects, and the list goes on and on. The trouble is I work from home and out of the home, have two little ones, and only so many hours in the day. I feel a bit burnout and a lot stuck, because I'm not even sure where to start. I'm not out of ideas, but I might be out of energy.
I'm usually so blindingly ambitious that I don't even pause to wonder, is this how I should be spending my time? I just chug along, making cool things and a whole lot of mess, without too much deliberation. But lately all I want to do with my free time is ignore the mounds of laundry, curl up in bed, and binge watch Girls. I'm not sure if it's a whole year of sleepless nights finally catching up to me, or the unending colds that have been attacking my house, or simply a weird phase. I just thought I should put this out there and keep it real with some of my very favorite people: my readers. I really don't like feeling so unmotivated to create.
So tonight I'm not here to tell you I'm taking a break from blogging (I don't want to!), instead I wish to share my one and only goal for the rest of May: to rediscover my maker mojo (honestly it might require a bit more TV watching and more than a few naps).
Any tips or tricks you have are most welcome.
And perhaps more importantly, I'm almost done with Girls, what should I watch next?
