Get Inspired…or Not?


Yup….the picture is about how I’m feeling at the moment….totally uninspired and drained.  It’s that time of the month.  And before you think it’s *that* time of the month, I’m long past it.  No, it’s that time of the month when I’ve just driven through a shite-storm (because one hits every month, sometimes, daily) and I’m completely knackered, both physically and mentally.  This is alright for some, but I am the main person who makes stuff in my business…the one who does all the tweets…the one who takes care of the Facebook page AND the Etsy shop.  Let’s face it..I’ve become a one-woman band because the others have pretty much buggered off on their own directions…one rushed off her feet on a new job, another with a new baby, and a son who is trying to write/draw/build a new video game.  But, I don’t really feel so uninspired because of all that.  It’s just my time of the month!

To explain further (don’t worry, this won’t get uncomfortable for you) – Every 2 to 3 days (the exact figure isn’t in my head) the Moon goes into one of the 12 zodiac signs..From Taurus on to Aquarius, I am just sort of “managing”, not really getting anywhere – at least, I don’t feel as though I am.  Ideas are limited, physical activity even more so, the will to live is still just there, thank goodness!


I find this rather funny in a way, that it begins with Taurus.  Everyone knows Taurus is the creative one.  It’s the sign I were born under (only just as I am a Taurus/Gemini cusp baby).  From there until Aquarius, which is roughly 21 days +/-, I am just not really at my best (unless all I have to do is sit in front of my laptop and just tweet, look up stuff, or read up on some things).  However, once Aquarius comes along, I spend the next week making things like mad! I’m also good through Pisces and Aries, but can always tell when I’m winding down to..Taurus…

I’ve often been told (when I were younger) that when your mind and body are screaming “Down Time!!” it is really a time of rejuvenation, that whilst you may feel uninspired, draggy, lazy, losing the will to live, that this is when a whole different part of yourself is taking over and you are, for the most part, completely unaware that you’re actually making progress, in spite of feeling like Marlena McQueen stretched out on the sofa snoring. If that one goes past you, don’t worry…not everyone is a Hollyoaks fan :).  You are learning, taking things into your Mind Palace, storing them, getting in your “me time”, sorting things out in your head, gearing up to your next big time of creativity.  I only wish that my down time were a week and my up time would be the 21 days! I hope most of you are more productive in a month than I!

So, now I’ve had a bit of a whinge, I can honestly say I feel as though I should go make an effort.  I think I can *just* about squeeze in making a necklace… before I have a kip 🙂
