Listen now (53 mins) | In today’s episode we dive into this letter from a listener: This year has been hard for me. I feel a bit lost in my business and so so tired. I have been making pottery for over a decade, selling for about 6 years and working full time as an artist for 2. And the struggle just never ends. I feel like I am pushing a rock up a hill and I keep waiting for the incline to level out so I can coast a little.
Really loved this ladies. So needed to hear all your golden nuggets 💛🙏🏻
Oh my heart breaks just a little reading this, I’m looking forward to listening. I can relate to losing energy and feeling disheartened with myself and my business too. Sending much love 💛✨
Thanks to ‘Polly’ for sharing this letter and to Sara and Jen to normalize all the stuff. I like the fact that you take into account her struggles but also open to a larger and compassionate view.
As a neurodivergent creative with ASD/ADHD and writing about it, I can also say that the more we’re able to master our energy and our flow in « easy » times, the more we will stay centered and self-loving when in trouble. If you're curious, I recently shared some pieces about archetypes and neurodivergent creativity here https://hluizar.substack.com/p/your-creative-thrilling-abilities
(‘Your creative thrilling abilities’)
My two cents : Get to know intimately your creative process and your body. Consider your process+body as a whole real person and take care of it, one step at a time.
This episode spoke right to my heart. I laughed out loud and teared up too. But my favorite line: “you are not in a dumpster fire all by yourself” 😂❤️
Such a wonderful episode - so many wee gems in there and takeaways for anyone who has ever run out of steam in business. So that’s all of us then. 🧡
