stuck in thought

I have seriously have a lot going on. Sort of. I mean with a job change and life in general I suppose. I do have some other serious things going on, at least in my head. I cannot talk about those but they are there.

You would think I would get more journaling done, but I have not. I am trying to not let myself feel guilty for this. Because well that would be silly to be guilty for no real reason. It is just that journaling is one of the way to deal with change, and thoughts and such. Yet I have been in denial, I suppose. In some ways and therefore have been just stuck in repetitive thought processes of how to deal, what to do, etc.

I know this indeed is not helping and now I have to come to closure on some of these thoughts so that I can bring myself to a good balanced place for when I start my new job the 1st of August.

I feel if I do not that I am only bringing more trouble to myself that is not helpful. It is hard enough to transition to a new job, but to one that is dynamically different in hours, days, and what you do on a daily basis, is doubly so.

Separating yourself, life, what you love and your job because it is a job, it is not who you are. Sometimes is difficult. Add onto that your own personal thoughts and needs and what is actual, brings more challenges.

And I have two new classes I have started, that I serious want to do and focus on bu have lacked the ability to focus. I have started on them and am enjoying them, the learning the process and all that. But I find that I want to just hide myself away and to cope with some of the things my head and heart is thinking. And on top of that i have three journals which have to be done by the 1st for an order. They are half way done, but I have not worked on them at all so far this weekend.

I cannot seem to find my way out of the hole of my thoughts that I have surely dug for myself.

In need of...

I am in need of a bit of inspiration, well no really I think it is motivation. As I post this I realize I am always surrounded by inspiration. And I can always find it if I have the true need to search for it. BUT really what I am lacking is motivation!

How do make yourself motivated, always tricky for me. And more than likely tomorrow when I return to work I will have an over abundance of inspiration and motivation but no way to let it out creatively since I will be at work! It works that way a lot for me. I am sure it my own doing, but I have yet to find a way to motivate myself everyday!

Any advice on how you guys stay motivated? Or make yourself work when you just cannot see working, I mean creatively speaking, not doing laundry. Which I have to do as well!

Just a splash of DMC color!!!! I went wild with the teals, love love love teal!!! :D

Oraganizing Bonanza

I had truly hope to spend this weekend off doing super creative stuff! Which I am in way. I have been on super organization mode! CRAZY! I re-organized my sewing room and sewing room closet, it looks fabo and I cleared out a good bit! (6 hrs! with a lot of pee breaks :P) Now I have just got done reorganizing my paper scraps and die cuts. SO much better and takes up way less space and I can easily see what is going on there! I am about to start on the ribbon, fiber stuff. BUT I needed to cook my squash casserole for tomorrow and upload the pictures I took today when I went to my grama's and of my dead yard. SO a few pictures of the day! :D

reflection of my feet and a dogie peeking

this entire area was poison ivy/oak whatever I wish I had taken b4 pics it was a hot mess we had to kill it ALL, there is more around the house in the yard etc, all fun brown deadness waiting for some serious work to be done...

Have a super safe awesome 4th!
