As in the need to…
…PUSH to break through creative ruts (which can happen way too often!),
…PUSH to get our home remodel finally finished,
…PUSH to spend more quality time with my family,
…PUSH to simplify and organize my home, life and business
…PUSH to exercise more often (like pulling teeth!)
…PUSH to spend less time on the computer and more time outside
And the list seems to go on and on…
And while sometimes this word may sound rude or forceful, to me it's come to mean the concentrated effort to push past my fatique, insecurities, discouragement, and crazy schedule to make some big changes in my life that I feel are long past due. Like a good hard kick in the pants to get me going! Hah!
One of the big projects I'm starting to tackle is reorganizing and decluttering my main studio space. Right now, it's so crammed with supplies, boxes, and works in progress, with just a little 2-foot wide aisle running through it from the door to my computer. I swear my family is thinking about submitting my name to the Hoarders television reality show. Seriously!! And if they don't, I just might…I could use the extra help! LOL
Here's what my studio used to look like when I lived in Kansas:
I finally got my dream studio space finished—only to find myself packing it all up for our move to Washington six months later and have never fully unpacked since then. *sigh* My current space is a totally different configuration and I really miss my basement storage, but I'm bound and determined to "push" through and get it back to as close to perfect again as I can—one square foot at a time! *Ü*
What kind of things are you pushing through that you'd like to accomplish?
