Venting



Hello my friends, today I came across this photo and could not help but feel strongly connected to it. Also lately I've had this enormous cloud that has been hovering over me lately. A combination of things overwhelming me I suppose, or the fact that usually my sunny positive outlook while getting through life's up and downs doesn't seem to be working as of late. There is also some life changing things happening to those around me (which naturally kind of changes my life in ways). Not that it is all bad, but I tend to be the person that carries the weight of others so strongly on my own shoulders I feel as though it is also happing to me. Another factor is working for yourself and not taking the time to take good breaks to socialize can get very lonely as well.

In all honesty, I need a mini break of sorts. (A must, we all do ) and to not let the wants of where I want to be with my life in the future take away from the today.. But even knowing all of that, ( it is what I try my best to live by) it is hard sometimes. Hoping it is natural to feel broken down hopeless at times.. ( Yea I know it is normal) lol.. but in the moment, it sucks ;)

So for the rest of today I am going to go on a run, yoga it out and get to sleep early.. xo (always helps). Thank you for listening to my rant, I feel a bit better just to get it out somewhere.

a mini-break is always in order- especially when you work for yourself. i am glad i ran across your blog via twitter. i've actually admired your art for quite some time.

Daring of you to write about your feelings.
I think it is a bit the time of the year as well maybe.
When Summer comes you will feel more energized and happy! I am waiting for that grassy sunny feeling in that fabulous picture.
Also taking brakes and being social is important, not the easiest task. I rather like to spend a lot of time with myself but not healthy in the long run.
Hope you already feel better after your yoga session:)

Awww, I hope you feel better soon, it's never fun to feel like you have a cloud hanging over your head. Time for yourself is in order, you're right.

Such a peaceful photo. I can see why it makes you want to stop and take a break yourself.

Rant anytime :) I totally get how hard it must be to work for yourself and even worse to be an artist to boot as it can be so isolating.
Take care of yourself and I hope you feel chirpier soon :)

Good for you to take care of your body in times of need! I am completely an advocate of that. I hope you feel better soon!

:( Aww it's true, it happens to us all! But I think that it's times like these that help us stop, reassess, and live better lives. Good luck with your mini break, lovely; I hope it brings you clarity and peace!

Feel better Leigh! We all go through these moments, and it is good to know when you need a break. You deserve it! Hugs to you.

i relate. i do a solitary artisan job, plus i fit the introverted artist type. i usually love being this way, but every so often it gets lonely. i also take dance classes and yoga to get my "social" fill. glad to see other people feel the same way i do.
