Bundling up in an abundant amount of wintery layers this morning, I slowly hobbled off to work, stiff and sore from my jogs around the island in the mornings.
I fired up my PC and logged in to my email, clutching desperately onto my first cup of coffee for the day. That was when I saw it. An email from a client that I have been corresponding with for over a week. He's decided to buy a painting from the gallery for his home in Australia! I made a sale! It still feels good every time I make a sale. Just yesterday I sold a beautiful chandelier to another client - so on the work front, I am feeling incredibly productive and blessed!
Writers block happens to the best of us and there are many ways in which you can attempt to overcome it.
This time though... I decided to just give myself a break and forget about writing completely and let me just say that the break was indeed, definitely needed.
I let it all go - every chapter, every character and every smidgen of an idea that had been blossoming in my creative noggin.
Sometimes, just living is just what you need.
Stop continuously pressurizing yourself and give yourself a chance to breathe... a chance to MISS the things that make you tick - the things that you work hard on. You'll appreciate it so much more when you welcome it back into your life after a few days break.
We, as human beings, are always trying to achieve something - just be careful you don't end up resenting your greatest passions by asserting too much pressure on yourself.
My writing is now back in full force!
Today - on this blessed Thursday, I feel inspired. Very inspired.
