I shared a recipe for waffles with an old friend last week and as it was a recipe I had from my father-in-law, I didn't have the name of the book or author. I got that information over the weekend though so this evening I sent my friend short note to fill her in. While typing, it suddenly occurred to me that 'waffle' is the perfect way to describe me these days. And I don't mean that I've got a grid-like look to me or am covered in maple syrup (and let's not give The Leopard any ideas please). I just feel like I'm waffling on a lot of aspects of my life right now, particularly this blog.
I'm having such a hard time making decisions on pretty much every creative project I've started or have been thinking of for the past several weeks and months. I'm having difficulty figuring out the focus of this blog, probably because I'm having trouble moving forward on those creative projects. I even have a fairly long list of Etsy 'favourites' that I've been thinking about buying for ages, but I keep changing my mind about whether I really want/need them or want to give them as gifts. Imagine - not being able to make decisions about shopping!
It's not that I'm lacking inspiration; it's more that I'm lacking direction. And probably a bit of confidence. But they say the first step to improving is to admit you have a problem, so I'm hoping that by acknowledging the waffling, I'll be able to shake it and move forward. I'm going to set a couple of easy creative goals for the coming week and make them my priority. Hopefully I'll have something positive to share next week. That way, Tara, who never seems to lack direction or confidence in her cooking, can keep the waffles*.
* NB: This post isn't about the waffle recipe I have, but they sure do look and sound amazing, don't they?
