Been feeling so uninspired lately.
So much crazy going on in the world around me,
both near and far.
All of my energy goes toward remaining positive.
Not allowing any left over for creative.

My mind has been blank
and my feelings close to the same.
Perhaps I am shutting down and reserving.
Perhaps I am lying in wait of something big.

I did manage to eek out an encaustic piece.

I still have zero confidence in myself
and know my attitude keeps me from growing or succeeding.
Instead I am surviving.
I am quite sick of that existence.
I don't want to simply survive any longer. 

What the hell is missing?
What stops me?

I have a fun weekend planned and will keep these questions in the back of my mind.
Perhaps if they stew there long enough, they will manifest into an answer.

I apologize for this random vomit of thought.
Haven't been posting much due to the thoughts and feelings I have been experiencing lately.
Guess I'm just being real today.

I am going to end this post with some very inspirational quotes in hopes that they reach someone else who needs to read them as badly as I do.

Happy Weekend To You.

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me."  ~Erma Bombeck

The purpose of life is a life of purpose.  ~Robert Byrne

If you hear a voice within you say "you cannot paint," then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.  ~Vincent Van Gogh

I wish I was a glow worm,
A glow worm's never glum.
'Cos how can you be grumpy
When the sun shines out your bum!

Great quotes Lynn. I've been thinking about you so know that you are not alone. I think everyone goes through flat periods, it is maybe like a cleansing before "rebirth" as your energies settle. At least that is what I tell myself when I feel like that. So big :) to you.
