For the past few months (close to a year, rather), I've been going through some mental gymnastics and dealing with a bit of lethargy and lack of inspiration for anything. The other day while Peter and I were talking, I came to some conclusions that I wish I'd realized years and years ago. So after talking out things and recognizing why I felt the way I do about some things in my life, suddenly my mojo has come flooding back.
I'm inspired to do all sorts of things that I haven't had the desire to do for a long time, and together, we've made some changes. Let me just say - it feels SO good! Releasing all that baggage that has been dragging me down, letting go of THINGS, getting rid of all the excuses has given me such freedom. While all this sounds a bit vague, it's made a major difference.
I have been eating on a more regular basis, making better choices, doing more, eliminating the CHAOS that has surrounded us and kept us feeling bound and depressed. It's just stuff and there's more where that came from. It's not making me happy, so why not give it to someone who can use it and hopefully enjoy it more than we can?
Hopefully this newfound happiness and lightness will find its way into my creative life. I have scrapbooked one page in 2007, and I miss it. I miss the joy it brings me, and I'm ready to go back to doing the things that relax me and make me feel content.
But for now, I'm excited with the things I've gotten done the past couple of days that I'd been procrastinating about for months now. :) Feels good!
