Be back soon!!
I have been struggling to balance motherhood + creativity + life these past many weeks...and it has been a struggle. I have so many paintings in my head, so many blog posts I want to write, so much to share...but there's never enough time in the day. And I find myself being stretched so thin...too much coffee, not enough sleep + self care. Now that Tara is older, she requires so much more of my time + attention and I find that I can't get to everything. Lots of driving her to classes, the library, the park...constant chatter and answering questions. Plus...all the mommy guilt!!! I wake up at 4:30 or 5 in the morning and after 2 cups of coffee..I try to squeeze in some painting time, me time, computer time. After weeks of this...it's wearing thin. I'm feeling it. Exhausted, depleted...zoned out!
Trying to keep up with my journaling...it's what's grounding me right now...my quiet moments. 15 mins. writing in here, drinking a cup of tea... is a mini vacation!!
And so...with all that I have learned about self care...I am going to take a mini break from my blog and all things computer. Be back soon!!!
