When I woke this morning, I was feeling like I needed to express my feelings in a drawing… I’ve been feeling aloft lately.  Not really knowing what task to concentrate on… there are tasks I need to do, but wishing I could work on the tasks I want to do… Knowing that to work on one, I must let go of the others for a time.

Ever present is pain (from various past aliments and injuries), sadness (usually hormonal shifts), and uncertainty (in my abilities)… most days these feelings are in the background and can be ignored… some days they are in the forefront.  On the days that these feelings are in the forefront, I have even more difficulty working on any of the tasks I want/need to do…

Tangles I used in this drawing: Framz, K-leesi, Yah, Curl, Hibred, and Vigne.

Until next time…

  1. I know how you feel. I try to alternate between the things I want to do and the things I have to do. But I can be in a very bad mood when I don’t have time to do the things I like. Luckily I have no inspiration when my house is too messy or I don’t have any food left in the fridge. So that motivates me to clean or go to the grocery store.
    When I am not well, I can easily spend a watching television without any feelings of guilt. Sometimes I need to take a step back.

    • Exactly. 🙂 I recently bought a Roomba, and that has helped with the cleaning a bit, it makes us want to be more tidy so that the robot won’t be hindered in his daily vacuuming. As for food, ugh… I think I want to create all these great dishes so I buy the ingredients, but then I don’t have the energy or desire to cook something that takes longer than 30min… I used to cook for hours and enjoyed it, I even had a food blog – I hope to one day get back to that level of energy again. I am trying to be more mindful of taking time out for me now, I have noticed that I have more to give to others when I take time out for myself. 🙂
