Feeling a little lost…

Feeling Lost – (Autumn Poetry Reprise) from NyYankee on Flickr

I did it again.  I let the work wrap me up and spin me around and make me feel disoriented in my own skin.  Today I’m irritated with it all and I’ve been spending far too much time away from what makes me feel EXCITED.  Sure, I’ve been able to put a couple of things together recently (which I’m definitely feeling good about).  But have I gotten them out yet?  And what about the 10 other things that are sitting, waiting, to make their way into the ether.

On Monday I had a conversation with a woman at work.  This woman works like crazy and she’s knowledgeable and a lot of fun.  We were talking about balancing work and family and all the demands that climbing the corporate ladder brings.  She recently let her kids down, again, because when she promised she’d put her Blackberry away for a couple of days on Spring Break she didn’t because “duty called”.  Her solution?  “I have to learn not to promise things.” That statement has been sitting, uncomfortably, with me since then.  It’s made me feel disconnected from this work world.  I can’t ever be that.

So, tonight?  Me and my creative/art/business/entrepreneur/partner side need to hook up and get back on the same path.

About Mama's a Mess

Who am I and what am I doing here? Well, at the end of the day I'm a mother and a wife, a lover of classic monster movies and comic books, of music, TV and movies. I'm a sucker for pop culture. I'm a fangirl. I'm an artist. As my husband always puts it, "Baby, you're a mess!" I have a penchant for creating and collecting. I feed my brain with a mix of anything from hot rods and pin-ups to handmade and natural. I like to dig in the dirt and grow things but sometimes picture myself doing it like Donna Reed. I will always, always choose to wear a dress first. I am head over heels in love with my husband and have a fantastically crazy life with him.
