This week was a very stressful week for me. The kind where I was questioning why I ever started a business, thinking of other possible career choices, and wanting to give up altogether. Thankfully, I was at my parent’s house when this breakdown was occurring and they don’t ever let me quit. I’m extremely burnt out right now from some projects that I’ve been working on for the past month and I’m looking forward to the long weekend.
When this burnout occurs, I know I need to unplug, head up north and take a break. It’s the best way to remind myself of why I do what I do and refocus my efforts and mind to a more positive space. The refueling part of the creative process is an incredibly important part of the equation and sometimes I like to go until I completely use up all of the fuel in my tank. Not good! I must remind myself that taking breaks is healthy.
I’m feeling all sorts of calm vibes from looking at the images above. Still feeling all of the blues and I’m hoping to come back to work and use this inspiration to fuel new work.
I hope you all have an amazing Labor day weekend and go where you feel most alive.
