There's one little problem with absolutely loving what you do for work: It's easy to overwork! Last year I was on so engrossed in projects for French Kiss that the rest of my life got a bit out of balance. I got sick the end of December and it lingered into January. I started feeling better in January, but I had no energy or inspiration to return to my studio.
I realized I needed the grounding energy of what the "Flylady" (Queen of home cleaning) calls "Blessing The Home". I've been cleaning, re-organizing, cooking, juicing, and baking bread. I've slowly spread from the kitchen to blessing the other rooms and I now find myself back in my studio feeling energized and excited again.
I'm going to spend the rest of this week re-energizing and I'll be back in the studio next week with new tutorials, and additions to the store. I've been working on some Valentine goodies.
How about you? Are you finding balance in this new year? What do you find nourishing to your creative soul?
