I find one of the hardest things to do is show up to my creative work when I am just not feeling it. I drag my feet, my heart cheers me on "You can do this!" but my brain and hands are saying-"lets just lay on the couch and look at facebook, watch a show, pin 100 pins on pinterest. no one needs to know."
It's okay to need a break but you can't fool yourself. There is a fine line between a needed break and just being resistant, and lately there have been some days I have been feeling resistant. I can tell because I get irritable and frustrated really quickly. The inner critic pops out a little more than usual.
But the important think is to just show up to your work, your passion, the things you love, even if you might not be feeling it. Work through it, It tells yourself (maybe subconsciously that you are there for your passions, your dreams, even on days you don't want to). The only way to grow is to show up.
How will you grow in the direction of your dreams? How will you show up?
