Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

Living Simply

I was on this blog this morning and found a quote that is interesting:

I had everything I needed (except a runner for the hall to keep Jack’s excitement quiet for the neighbors below). I didn’t want to add anything more to my home because I realized that in spending so much time, money and effort on my flat I was taking away from outside experiences like travel, friends, clothes and play. I wanted to start spending more time outdoors at the beach, at the park, riding my bike, seeing movies than in getting a new pillow, piece of furniture or new bowl that I didn’t really need.

I wonder about that for myself. How many experiences am I denying myself because I focus too much on things that are "enough already." How do I know when enough is enough?

Enough already. I need to think about that.

I'm working on a new design for my book origami. It's very soothing to me.

I've been thinking about this a lot lately, too. I'm pretty sure I have more than "enough already!"
