At the beginning of this month, I hit burn out. Instead of working on my blog, my Squidoo, or anything else worthwhile, I played computer games and re-connected with my Wii. This burn out, which I figured would last about two days, lasted two weeks. At first, I felt guilty for not plugging away at something that may end up being profitable, and therefore doing my duty as a mom and bringing in a bit of extra income. Yeah, that guilt didn't last too long. I would sit at the computer looking at the "make a new lens" link, and draw a complete blank. I would look at my lenses, and hit edit on one that needed a bit more tweaking, and just stare at the screen with no passion for it what-so-ever. I knew if I didn't take a much needed "vacation", then I may risk loosing interest in my lenses altogether, and this burn out would last for months. If you feel that burn out creeping up, take a vacation, do something fun, but completely useless. Refresh, regroup, relax, and reconnect with things that make you laugh. Now that my burn out is over, I have a new found vigor and passion for my lenses, and I'm happily getting back in the game!
