Well, it’s official! The summer season has come to an end. It was an interesting summer for me. I am still getting used to life on my own and since I tend to hibernate during the summer I had a lot of one on one time with myself! This is a good and bad thing. In my previous post I shared that I was planning on taking it easy for the first time in like forever and I did it. I can’t believe that I did, it wasn’t always easy, I beat myself up a bit but got over it quickly, lol. The time alone was really nice, I have been re-evaluating my life and trying to figure some things out, I don’t have any answers yet but, I feel good and am starting to move forward gently. The down side of alone time for me is that I think way too much and drive myself crazy. Re-evaluating things and digging deeper is great but, when you start to get lost in the details and cause yourself anxiety over things then it takes an unhealthy turn. Needless to say, this did happen to me and I actually learned quite a bit about myself. Another good thing about being on your own is that things get a lot clearer when they are affected by other peoples energy. I find myself questioning some things about my work life as well. I am looking at where I am at at this point with my business and if I am happy. It is really hard working by yourself and running a creative business. Some days, I just want someone to tell me what to do, tell me what they think is working and not working. It is so hard to figure it all out on my own, and like I said earlier, I tend to over think everything and drive myself crazy. I don’t have any answers at this point, just questions. So, here I am. lol. I am a little lost and trying to get back in the swing of things and am having a hard time catching the swing! I feel like I am starting over, trying to rebuild my life and my business to unfold in the shape of my new life and at this point, I have no idea what that looks like. It will be interesting to see where things go.
I did find time to play with some new art this summer. Here are a few explorations.
