Points of Two - Week Ten...

Hello and welcome to week ten of the Points of Two Project!  This week Kira and I focused on "How to Be Miserable as a Journaler." If you journal or create art in another medium, you have at one time or another found yourself to be in a creative 'funk' and somehow unable to overcome.  I find my biggest issue is calming my inner critic and dealing with procrastination.  When the first becomes bearing down on me, I have to remind myself that I have something to share and it is uniquely me!  The latter, is my burden when I feel inadequate and would rather put off creating or journaling.  Fear of inadequacy fuels this and procrastination seems the order of the day!

If you are interested in being miserable as a journaler, then check out my top ten list.  Once applied, you will also find yourself to be as miserable as me when you want to be!!  LOL!  The best solution is positive self-talk is 'hunkering' down and actually creating something!  

Be sure to check out Kira's blog to see her page and her thoughts on being miserable as well!!

Have a  blessed day!
