I Want To Lazy! by darkly-danie featuring a black sweater
Sometimes, the hardest thing in the world is to motivate. This morning I realized that it had been many days since TF had a post. I sat and I reflected on what the problem was and I realized I have just been too darn busy to even think about my sewing room!
It is often hard to admit that life can get us. It can get in the way, it can wear us down, and sometimes we get a case of the blergs. The problem with being a blogger and the internet is we have constant pressure to be awesome coming at us 24/7. However, no one can handle the strain of being busy and productive all the time! That's nuts. Often times we need to take a step back and just let ourselves decompress. Granted often times, for me, that is in my sewing room- yet in this past week I just couldn't spare the brainpower to start a new project.
Vacation wore me out (let's face it they usually do) and the minute I got home it was back to the realities of life. I had a licensing test to study for and take, a new job (complete with interview) on the horizon, the husband and I bought me a new car (and that has had its ups and downs), we have immediate family members getting married which means lots of family social events, I have a new class for Phleb certification which starts next week, and after all this I am burned out.
Yet, this is not a post to whine about being busy. Being busy is a glorious thing. It means we are living life to the fullest. This is a post about not letting yourself be overwhelmed or feel pressured to take on more than you can handle. I could not even think of my blog this week and to be honest at one point I got a little upset. Like how can something important to you fall by the wayside? Because I am a human being with a life! And that is ok! ]
The last two days I will be honest with you- I vegged! My husband and I had beta access to the new Final Fantasy XIV release (did I mention we are GIANT GEEKS!) and I spent the last two days sitting in bed leveling my character to 13. Sadly in the world of go go go we are often made to feel like if we sit in bed two days playing video games we are slackers or useless. Yet, I attest that sane humans beings need brain breaks and there is nothing wrong with that!
I do want to take a minute and share a photo of my gorgeous new car with you. Its a 2013 Mini Cooper and it is my dream car. I am giant anglophile and as many have pointed out this is the "most me" car I have ever owned down to the Union flag mirror covers. I am very proud and happy to own it. It really is my first grown up car with a grown up price tag and I love it.
