I've begun working on a new project which is very exciting for me as through this work I may have stumbled onto my next 52 WEEKS PROJECT. The idea has been simmering for several weeks but suddenly last night I had a clear vision of what it should be...now just to decide whether I begin this summer or wait until January. Though I will begin collecting supplies.
I'm always fascinated how ideas come, at times they come slowly, simmering and brewing and requiring so much research along with trial and error. At others, they pop up suddenly and disrupt my sleep, in a good way. Though in every case I find that once I stop thinking about it, things tend to come to a perfect resolution on their own.
I've been told I tend to over-think everything, which I believe I do and yet I know better. The more I try to push for resolutions which is followed by panic wondering if I'll ever be inspired again, the more the inspiration seems to elude me. But once I stop thinking and just get to work...on anything...the ideas begin to flutter and all I have to do is reach out and pick one...or two. Any more and I become easily overwhelmed.
So, once again, I put aside any thoughts of the project and set down to work and suddenly everything fell into place. Oh I like those days.
