When cultivating a creative life, there are times that the creative rut, or slump, happens. It literally happens to everyone at some point of their creative journey. I call it a journey because hardly ever does anyone stop being creative. Creativity happens to all of us, even those who claim to have no “talent”. Lately, I have been in a creative rut when it comes to blogging. I have been on a new, slightly different adventure which requires me to be very creative in different ways. But, nonetheless, I have identified that I want the best of both worlds. I am, right now, unclear on how to get there or stay the course. Over the past month, I have taken the time to introduce myself to my new adventure, what it requires and how to keep on with the old adventure (this blog). So, if you are in a creative slump or you feel yourself slipping into one, keep reading, you are not alone and there is a way to get out and maybe find a deeper journey.
With fall and the new school year, brings a different set of goals. Since I am in the mid-west, we are now on the race to finish up loose ends and complete projects before winter comes. Let’s talk about what my goals are for September.
Well, well, well…..look who fell off the wagon for August and is coming back for vengeance in September. YOU GOT IT! That would be me! I have no excuses, none. Other than, I really wanted to just be lazy and live out the rest of my summer with my daughter and prep for her to go to 6th grade ((can you hear me ugly crying right now)).
It has been no surprise that I had hit the pause button on the gym and healthy eating. If you read my July goals here, then you already know that I had to set the goal of making it to the gym at the very least three times per week. I felt silly and not like myself when I wrote it, but the truth is, that I needed to put it down on paper. Little did I know that it would take me an additional two weeks to “get back on the horse”. I just never found the right time and I never got my heart right.
I know that I just shared my farmhouse dinner table project with you, and I know that you may be wondering if I have absolutely gone mad?! And that may be as, I seriously cannot stop. Paint and varnish have taken over my life and my home and I kind of like it!
