Winter (or rather “winter” in Vegas), hibernation, time for reflection, digging deep and re-aligning with goals and visions. That of course comes with questioning things, situations, people, my own decisions and actions. I’m trying to give myself enough time and space to do that, but there is always a nagging feeling that I am missing out on things and opportunities (yes, #fomo …). But I know I need this time, and I need moments where I just chill, where I get to play around with ideas, time when I’m feeling lazy so that thoughts can roam freely and come to the surface. Sometimes I feel like the biggest obstacle to creativity is not laziness but guilt. There are lessons I “should have” learned by now, but I guess I need to go through them more than once.
