You ever get to that place where you want to do something, but don’t feel like you have the energy, and you aren’t quite sure what you want to do, anyway?
But you really want to do something.
So you start, and then stop, and start something else. And on it goes.
I was that way last night, and decided I’d paint (what a surprise!). But I just couldn’t get into what I was doing. I recognized the mood I was in, and knew I wouldn’t be happy with my painting no matter what. But I made myself keep at it.
There’s a kind of freedom in knowing you won’t succeed. I turned off my brain and just painted and yes. I don’t like it. But I’m not grumpy anymore and I popped myself out of that ‘I don’t know what I want to do’ because I did something.
I think it’s called Art Therapy, lol.
