I often find myself in a constant state of inspired . I am forever brainstorming, always planning, never executing.
It has been this way for as long as I can remember. I know that I am creative. I have ideas (good ideas, I think, I'm pretty sure) but I lack the confidence to follow through.
It's always the same story: In the beginning I come up with an exciting project and full of energy I consider all the fabulous possibilities. I get distracted, and become discouraged. Ultimately I give up, justifying it with a million excuses (some real, some imagined).
Why is it so hard I wonder? Is it this way for everyone?
With the adoption work behind me I feel able to take something on while I wait, a project that will bring me satisfaction, creatively. Instead of spending all my free time admiring others talent, maybe it is time to push myself to discover some of my own?
I have cleared a little space in the house that will be dedicated to creating and have promised myself that I will get up early each day to allow some alone time to focus. Wish me luck. Hopefully I will have something to share with you soon!
