What the hell? Is this what the year is going to look like?
I have not touched clay or even seen some since December. For somone who is trying to establish a pottery business that is somewhat troubling to say the least (insert face palm and embarrsed emojis) I am wallowing in a major bout of low motivation and I feel guilty.
I am questioning my actions. I stare at the "goals and objectives 2019 list I made at the beginning of the year and I wonder: What the hell? Is this what the year is going to look like? Time is flittering away and I am letting it.
To make matters worse, I started experiencing severe back pains as a result of a pinched nerve. OUCH! I could not do anything for a week plus and that depressed me even further.
Fast forward and its the first week of February and I'm only now writing my first blog post. (I've written and deleted this about 5 times since my last email to you) I was just not satisfied.
I discovered that I was not the only one who experienced low motivation and had to kick my own butt to get moving.
In desperation I went on to my Instagram stories and admitted my 'sins'. I expected that I would be raked, tarred and dragged through the streets with the shame bell ringing.(Can you tell I'm looking forwrd to the Season 8??)
Instead, I discovered that I was not the only one who experienced low motivation and had to kick my own butt to get moving. One of the things I asked for was suggestions on how to get up and I will graciously share some of what I learnt from my followers on how they get going with you, since we all need that boost every now and then.
Five Steps To Get Up and Get Going
So with that said, see you in the studio!
