Today is challenging. I can’t help but have this feeling deep within me hurting, stabbing, making me feel so dark and gloomy. The rain does’t help either. I love the rain.
We all have days like these, I suppose. But Its been a while for me. Today feels sorrowful. I’ve been feeling pretty good until recently. Perhaps it’s my recent medical health issues, or my creative block. Did I tell you I am an artist? I am. I illustrate for a living. I draw, paint, and design book covers. I love my job, so it can’t be that.
I don’t like it when I am like these, so helpless and in a sense lost. It distracts me from everything and hurts my art. Though, some would say this is when my best work comes from. I doubt that.
I do my best to try and get out of this funk. Hence, me writing this to you all. It helps. I also meditate, and paint. Thought most of my paintings end up looking rather dark. -sigh- Perhaps I need to let it pass.
What are your coping methods? Do you have any self-care tips?
