Any who have read my posts and blogs over the past year...2 years perhaps?...may have noticed I'm struggling with motivation...desire...deciding if any of this is even worth the time and effort.
I've tried many avenues to re-ignite my 'spark' - and even had momentary success - but nothing strong and long-lasting. I've been a member of both the SparkGuys & Coach Nicoles 10Min Teams for some time now but not been active.
Of late, I've had land in my INBOX some of SparkGuy's blogs which have kinda jump-started my thinking, if not yet my spark. The concept of a 10min streak has been floating in my brain but what kind of streak. I've already tried all of the cornerstones of a 'good' health and wellbeing plan...without great success.
I do realize those experiences that dulled my spark are not of me and I should not have allowed them to overcome me...however, seizing back control has been most difficult.
Yesterday, I headed to my FoxHole - which I have NOT been visiting regularly for quite some time - and settled in to complete some past projects, scrap others that aren't going to be finished (the need has passed) and to generally clean up and organize.
I wound up with these completed projects....
Bracelet (package décor for XMas gift)
Kitchen Window Drape Pull
Kitchen Window Drape Tieback
(looking at the pic, I see I could add a few beads...)
....and a realization maybe my streak needs to be about some ME time. Not a single one of the above projects took appreciable time to complete nor will any bring me great acclaim Im likely the only one wholl ever notice the drape pull or tie backs and the bracelet recipients (gonna make 5 more) may never even wear them but I feel good about completing them and enjoy knowing I did so.
So, thats gonna be my streak
not beading per se, but ME time. Maybe giving myself a mani, maybe doing some needlework, maybe reading
or a picnic
or hiking... Any activity I undertake will take more than 10 mins so this streak doesnt really fit into the above two 10min teams but oh well. I think Ill make it a 60min streak of ME Time, EVERY Day.
Heres my Tracker for this week:
S-8.23: 60 mins (a bit more but I didnt deliberately track
