Raise your hand if…you’ve been terribly ABSENT lately! Hey, me too! I’ve also been terribly blah lately, which bums me out because I’ve always been content with the winter months, sort of like a rest. I have a feeling that I’ve got that darn SAD, though, which has a hold on a few members of my family. I have absolutely NO creative energy, NO ambition, NO direction. And I don’t like it.
But I did get this Note from the Universe today and it actually made me feel better…
“What if funky, confusing, gray, lonely days were just part of a "system" that, in turn, created bright, rich, happy, friendly days? What if they were just meant to give deeper elements of your creativity a rest? What if they were deliberately crafted holidays, of a sort, devised by your inner psyche to relieve you from the pressure of artificial expectations? Would you still bemoan them, wonder what's wrong with you, or fear that they'll never end? Or, Carol, would they kind of tickle you pink?
You party animal, you -
What do you think? It’s given me “permission” to stop berating myself about staying creatively quiet, and for some bizarre reason, I need “permission”. Now maybe I can give myself a break and enjoy the respite.
I hope you’re having a good day and a good winter. Stay warm and soak up some winter-sun when you can.
