Adjusting to My New “Normal”

Hi, there! Hope you guys are doing well. ❤ In my previous post I mentioned how the trials of sorting out my mental health have not been without its ups and downs, but how I was finally starting to work on creative stuff again. …Guys… it’s been absolutely amazing being back at it. I am someone who thrives off doing creative things just about every day, so to experience the dry spell I recently had where I had no desire to write or draw or do much of anything with my solo free time was a nightmare.

I’m so happy to be working on my hobbies again. I have really been enjoying working on the next draft for the book I’ve been writing, and I also have plans this week to get together with a friend to create some art. Hopefully I’ll have some new illustrations and maybe even a painting or something to share with you guys soon. 😉

I’ve also become a lot more outgoing recently. It’s been kind of surreal learning how to live a less anxious and more focused life, but hearing the positive changes my loved ones have been seeing really makes me feel like I’m headed in the right direction. ❤

Now that it’s summer, what things are you guys looking forward to the most? How are your hobbies going? I’m looking forward to more time spent with amazing friends (like this past weekend we spent with Mr. and Mrs. Cupcakes & Machetes having fun) and doing the things I love to do, as well as trying new things along the way as well! 🙂

  1. I can’t imagine how it would feel to not even want to create. I’ve been there, and I know that life must be pretty crappy to reach that extent. Glad you’re back in the groove!

  4. My doctor recently told me about the Ten Percent Happier podcast, and it’s been helping my anxiety even if I don’t fully understand everything the guests say (one lady talked briefly about breathing through your feet, but she had other parts that were immensely helpful). It’s free through a podcast app (though costs money if you use the Ten Percent Happier app, which I do not).

    It would be so cool if you had art to go with your book so that when you get ready to publish you could do teasers or character sketches to get folks excited.

  5. That’s so great to hear Mrs Moth. You have to look after yourself and do what you need to do to make sure you’re ok. I’m the same as you and need to do something creative, or something that’s just for me, every day. It’s not selfish, I used to think it was. It’s easy to get bogged down with all the things in life that we have to do but for some reason we put aside the things we really need to help us. Even if I have 30 minutes in the cabin painting my little guys I feel so much better. Love that you’re writing and drawing again and I’m glad you’re happy in general. Keep smiling love. Life is for living and laughing and loving 😊❤️

  6. Yay! I know I feel antsy if I go for too long without working on my WIP. It’s not to the point where even one day of missing it and I’m chomping at the bit to get back to it. I’m glad you’re getting your spark back ♥
