Sorry, It’s Been A While

I did not realize how long it’s been since I posted anything on Milk Loves Soap!  Since December, to be exact.  So, as an apology, I wanted to share a few things with you.

  • First, this has been a tough year for me, on a personal level as well as from a business standpoint.  I believe you could call it a creative slump?  I’ve been going through the motions but my heart hasn’t been in it.  I think everyone must go through something like this at different points, or transitions in life.  I guess this involves the life cycle, so to speak.
  • Secondly, I finally cleaned up my work space.  When I did that, I felt a weight lift off me.  It was such an overwhelming task and I had been avoiding it for a very long time.  My shop had become a dungeon where people go who have been sentenced, like the Man In The Iron Mask?  Anyway, I have transformed my shop back into a working, clean area that is a pleasure to visit.
  • Thirdly, I have been tired without knowing why.  When I found out I had some vitamin deficiencies and started to address that, I am starting to have a ton more energy and feeling like my old self, maybe better than my old self.
  • Lesson learned:  Don’t neglect taking care of yourself and keep your work area clean and pleasant so you are not constantly distracted and dragged down, not to mention the guilt that goes with procrastination.

I hope to make some new soap this year.  I hope to not disappoint and I hope I can inspire you as much as you inspire me!
