When The Comfort Zone Itches ….. What to do with the ho hums.
It’s been a week, of course when isn’t it sometimes? I have been in my studio where I spend probably 4 to 5 hours a day working on new work. This week has been a roller coaster of ups and downs. First I love it, then I don’t love it, then I re work it, then I wreck it and on and on and on.
I’m back in the liking it stage which is good because the other other ones are frazzling me. Now I can sit back for a minute and coast. I am working in a new direction so the tendency to fall back on comfortable is really strong. I have to remember to tell myself to go away from that for now.
My way of changing things is to watch movies I would never watch. Read a book I would never read and look at blogs I wouldn’t normally be attracted to. We all get stuck in ruts. When I see the pattern coming on it’s usually accompanied by a feeling of agitation and restlessness, like things aren’t moving quickly enough. RUT ahead. Whoa.
This time I slowed down for a change and enjoyed what was going on today, now. It’s amazing how quickly the frustration ebbs away and I can feel the breeze again. Somehow the clouds look lovely and the moment isn’t sucked up by trying to get to some place at some point in time.
