Do you have to burnout?

Mar 6, 2013

I made another spontaneous video – now that I’ve started, I can’t seem to stop.  In this one, I’m actually wearing a little lipstick (I had to go to the accountant, which for me is a big outing and thus the celebratory lipstick).

But lipstick that is not the topic of this video, creative burnout is. What do with it and what not to do with it.

I have pushed myself the edge of burn-out so many times, and I’ve often felt shame about this. “I should know better.” I gave some thought to what I do know and hit record. I hope it is useful to you, dear one. Let’s make room for all our experiences, okay? Okay!
