the ups and downs of life

Overwhelmed With Thoughts

There are times when my creative well runs dry. I hate those times. I feel frustrated and angry. I am a creative person and it feels as if part of me is gone when that happens. Lately, though, I have been so overwhelmed with creative thought. It can be just as frustrating, though, when you don’t have time to bring these thoughts to fruition. I have had some thoughts on some paintings. It’s killing me that I actually have some ideas and I don’t have enough time to paint them. I have them in my head and I am going to have to do some quick sketches so I don’t lose them. I have some story ideas that I can’t develop but thankfully there are ideas! There have been times when there was absolutely nothing. Do any of you creative people do that? Go forever with no ideas and then it’s like you hit the mother lode? And they all come pouring in at once? It is a frustrating feeling because it is almost as bad as the dry spell. Today was supposed to be my day off from work and I was hoping to get some work done on some of this creativity. I’m on call, though. I got called in this morning and have to go back later to cover for someone else. So no creativity for me.

  1. When I worked for a non profit gallery full time, I had no energy at the end of the day to work on creative projects. Sometimes day to day stresses, work related responsibilities, commute times and other obligations got in the way of quietening my mind and allowing room for creative thoughts and activities. I understand your frustrations.

    • It’s so hard because some people don’t realize how creativity is sometimes so elusive and then sometimes it is plentiful. And when it is plentiful I want to take advantage of it! I want to use every ounce of it because I know there will be a time when I am begging for it. Thank you for reading. 🙂
