Well the holidays are officially over. Time to put away the holly and mistletoe for another year. It's also time to look at the year ahead and reflect and self-motivate. My New Year's resolution this year was quite simple...even though the year ahead may possibly be a rather full and intimidating one, with the possibility of going back to school in the fall for my MLIS (Master of Library and Information Science), I only made one resolution: to complete the dining room murals I've wanted to do since we moved in in February.
And yet...and yet. I told myself it was a perfect winter project, and I would start on it when the holidays were over. And now that they're over, I find myself procrastinating...finding one thing or the other to focus on other than my sketches and plans for this project. I find that it has grown to epic proportions of intimidation in my mind. It will be the biggest mural I've ever painted on a wall, and I've painted a few of them.
So I wonder, dear internet....how do you work past intimidation and procrastination to start a project? I sure could use the motivation.
Who knew a small room could loom so large?
