I think I need to apologize for the fact that I have missed a few blog posts this week. Monday was a holiday and I had planned to write my blog post on Sunday. But after our drive on Friday to northern California took 9 1/2 hours (instead of 5 1/2 hours) we chose to drive home Sunday night to hopefully avoid more bad weather. There were more bad storms hitting California on Monday and we could not bear another delayed drive. Unfortunately we got a late start and we didn't arrive home until after 10:00 pm. After driving six hours in rain and fog, I was a bit frazzled and wasn't in a good place to "be creative". So no blog post. Then on Monday I couldn't fight my cold any longer and ended up in bed most of the day. I had no energy and just couldn't make myself write a blog post. Yet another excuse ...
Sadly, I had a lot of guilt with the fact that I missed two blog posts. It took me a while to realize that most of you probably didn't even notice I didn't send out my blog for two days. And for those who did notice (if any!) it's not really a big deal. It's not like I am offering life saving medical advice on my blog. Right?
I finally told myself to just get over it. Stop feeling guilty and stop feeling guilty for feeling guilty. And just take more cold medicine. That definitely made me feel better.
Are you hard on yourself when you can't meet a commitment? Even when you have a pretty good reason? I think we all just need to let go. Get over it and move on. I went in my studio today and spent a few hours organizing and getting over my guilt. That, and a little bit more cold medicine, helped a lot.
