Ever feel like...

you are in a bit of a rut? That is where I am at lately. I usually am a very organized, positive, ahead of the game type of person...but lately I just feel like I am lacking a little motivation and feeling more like I am always just a step behind and needing to catch up on stuff. I haven't done much exercising in awhile and haven't been eating the best either...I know this is part of the problem. I think I maybe need to be better about taking more time for myself. I love my boys and family so much but sometimes I need to do a better job taking care of their mommy...know what I mean?

If you have any great motivational type books you've read or sites you visit that really inspire you...I'd love to hear your suggestions! Several years ago I read 'The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity' by Julia Cameron. It was wonderful. It focuses a lot on journaling and taking creative time for yourself each week. I would highly recommend it to anyone feeling a little down and needing some creative direction. Maybe I should go back through it again myself! :) I am hoping that a friend and I can find one day each week to meet up at the gym...that would be a good start!

Anyway, thanks for listening...I'm feeling a little better already! :) It's nice to have such wonderful blogging friends! I so wish some of you lived nearby...I am sure we would be good friends!

And I can't leave you all without a little project of some sort so I thought I would share my favorite Easter card that I created last year...hopefully it will be new to most of you! :)

This card uses Bella Blvd papers and sticker as well as some Bazzill Basics cardstock and May Arts ribbon.

I totally feel you on that one.. I've been lacking in motivation and haven't been working out as much as I was.. Mostly due to a leg strain that just won't let up..

I've been doing a few new things and seem's like a bit of that motivation is trying to come back...

Hang in there, we all have these small downfall's at some point..

Very adorable card by the way.. So cute..

Happy Creating..

I'm right with you on the motivation and think you should always have ME TIME! Of course I usually tell people that, but forget to do it myself. LOL
Your card is fabulous. I just love this paper and that bunny is to cute.
