Something pretty

Running on empty

Lately I sometimes feel like I'm running on empty and could use a dose of high octane ?something.Seems like the faster I go the behinder I get and the harder I try the less results achieved.Now,I know I have not been singled out for this honor and everyone has the same problem at sometime;so for those of you sailing blissfully at present,take over it's your turn.HA HA!!.Woudn't that be grand to just take turns when you feel like it.You know,don't think I want to deal with problems this week so the neighbour can do it;or the bills are getting out of hand so I'll wait for $ from heaven to take care of it.Oh,don't we wish.There is always a new and improved version of anything and everything daily now;to improve our lives.The only real things that improve our lives is love of others,respect for individuals,faith in ourselves and those we are lucky enough to know and cherise.None of these will solve all our dilemma's but they might help us to get a firm stance so life can't knock us over easily.Well my feet are again firmly planted and I invite you do the same;for there will be a next round and we'll have to duke it out.Maybe we'll win,maybe not;but the doldrums are going to know they've been in a battle.Off to make something pretty,cause I can!! So can you.

All of us hit a wall and get discouraged once in a while.We begin to doubt our creative ability or even if we ever had one.This can be caused by so many outside sources;one of the worst is when we feel no one shows any interest in our products let alone in purchasing one.While we continue to strive to put forth unique and lovely pieces that we litterally pray someone will buy.Have faith in yourself and the thing you love to do;it's much easier to have faith in others.We are seldom as as accepting of ourselves as we are to other people.No one has a pat answer to help the doubt go away.Lord knows I wish I did, keep creating,using your imagination and the skill in your hands;and believe the best is yet to come.
