Oh Creativity, where have you gone?

First, I need to update my previous post-I wanted to see Trainspotting 2 but due to circumstances and $5 Tuesdays I saw the new people version of Beauty and the Beast. As an  8o’s mom I have seen the Disney animated version of this story at least 1,000,000 times but this is a slightly darker story and I really enjoyed it. Being the total romance skeptic that I am it was a little too sugary at the end but hey there must be someone out there that lives happily ever after?

I used to be a pretty creative person-creative and crafty and full of ideas. Lately I am just dry-black and white-parched. Not sure if it’s due to my situation, unstable living arrangements, break ups or just general malaise. I currently have a crochet project sitting untouched and a whole stained glass work shop set up but gathering dust.

I recently had a gush of awake-day dream-imaginative ideas about my garden. It felt good and something I used to feel quite often so just like a lusty libido-which also has left me-i know it’s still there buried under the weight of “life”.

I am pushing myself, browsing Pinterest for ideas and building on some success in the time management department. I learned that if you repeat something 16 times it becomes a habit. I’ve proved that to myself with my boot camp attendance, it took many attempts but I’m finally there. Maybe I can transfer this approach to my stained glass? If I make a commitment to go to the basement everyday after work and just “be there” after 16 times it will be a habit and something creative will come out of it? Kind of twist on fake it til you make it?

My daughter gave me a piece of glass that I made long ago and said it doesn’t have any hanging hardware so maybe that will be step one. Yes, that’s it. Step one— add hardware to hang a piece that is already complete. How hard can that be?
