Sometimes I just get so exhausted! It's really difficult to keep everything going at once. I can try to make a schedule but something more important, more fun, more pressing will come up and whatever I had in mind for that time just doesn't get done. I try to keep some sense of routine in my life, but usually something throws a wrench in the operation and all my plans all go the way of the Do-Do.
When this happens I try to keep in mind this mantra that I was told when I lived in Rome, "If you have five things you want to do in a day, and you get three of them done, it's been a good day."
My hubsie also tries to encourage me by telling me that I try to do to many things at once, an impossible number of things, and it's not the end of the world when I don't turn on the dishwasher or make 10 more necklaces or whatever RIGHT THAT MOMENT. It's still frustrating though.
Look at this!
I saw Keri Smith's box of goodies and thought immediately ... I want one! And I want a life where I can tote it around and use it at my every whim!
I keep a Moleskine in my purse at all times. I use the kind with graph paper because I really like squares and symmetry so it makes my drawing easier. Also (most likely because I am a lefty) I cannot write on a straight line to save my life. I use my Moleskine to draw in, and also to make normal household notes in. I have commitment issues when it comes to journals. I probably have a dozen journals that are in various stages of emptiness. I'll get to a point and realize that I am displeased with my work and abandon the journal for another one. I'm crazy! How do I stop this? I need some sort of lessons in creativity management so when I have time for my creative time, I can really get down to business.
