2020 & well let’s face it… 2021 has been a hard year for many people for a variety of reasons. During covid, I felt a lot of pressure that I should use the time to get ahead on work, create something new, learn something new, etc. With many people showcasing the many things they were able to accomplish over covid with the “extra downtime”, I felt pressure to achieve or complete something big…. but the reality felt very different for me. I did not have creative energy during the lockdown, I found it challenging to get “motivated” to make and accomplish ‘to-do lists’ and instead I found myself focusing my energy on rest and recovery.
