I am an octopus.
With two arms - the other 6 are juggling the stuff in my head.
I'm challenged by all things creative be it photography, crafty things, digital design, home life, patterns on my skirts and colours I see on the street. I have many, many plans and know that I will never have the time to execute them all. I don't sit right when I'm supposed to be chilling out, watching TV. In my mind, instead, I have ideas churning and little mini dramas played out in my head with scenarios that are niggling me or challenges that have yet to be met. I'm quite the psychiatrists dream client.
I don't sleep soundly and often I wake up - at the dead of night slash morning, when I have an idea or question. I scrat for my iphone and google the answer (or email myself a thought) and then drift off back to the cogs whizzing and banging in my head.
I love it and I also hate it.
Then out of the blue, today, I was reminded of someone who inspired me a long time ago. And as I drove back from a demo in Southport, I did a lot of soul searching. I came home and I made lists. Lists and lists and lists. I love my lists but recently they have been stupid and outlandish lists. But tonight, I made more important lists with achievable goals. Ive stripped and pared back the more ridiculous things that I know I can't achieve and have told myself that its ok that I don't have to actually accomplish that idea. Its been quite liberating.
And whilst I allowed myself this time to cogitate, I actually gave myself a little creative time. Thus emptying my head completely before tonight's battle with the bedtime shenanigans of tossing and turning.
Its nothing majorly arty - just a little pretty. I made the pearly cluster from 5 pearl beads, some chain beading and a pink bead. A lil bit fancaaaaaay, no?
And that, my friends, has made a happy little octopus today.
