It has been six months since my last post on this blog, and nine months since my second last post. The big question is why? Why have I fallen into a slump?
It hasn’t been because of a lack of ideas since I have at least a half dozen posts that I had started and were stored on this account as a draft. And probably dozens more that never even made it that far. In fact, this post itself sat a couple weeks as a draft.
In all honesty, I think I have been pretty burnt out. I have recently become interested in the Meyers-Briggs personality types, and now I think I understand why that burn out occurred.
As it turns out, my personality type is INFP (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, perceptive), The Dreamy Idealist. I think my family and friends would find the description quite apt. I don’t want to go into the reasons here, but basically my personal life has been extremely contradictory to my personality. This has led to daily life wearing me out and draining the energy that I used to have for my projects. Now that I understand better what these contradictions are, I can work to right them.
And so, I am back!
I have begun painting again, and working toward a couple personal projects that I need to give my priority.
One of these projects is my painting, So, if you are interested in commissioning a painting, pet portrait, travel memory, etc. Please take a look at my art site NewMuseumKat’s Art
I finished a small painting of my cat Pickle this morning 🙂
p.s. I welcome no comments about the ‘pop psychology’ of personality types. I do not care.
