I had a desire to be creative

But when I arrived home, I had no inclination to do anything. I have all these ideas, but I don't know why I'm generally so unmotivated to do them.

I envy women who go to work full-time, manage to write a novel, look after their children, and even fit in some knitting or painting here and there. What kind of kick under the bottom is it that I need to get me doing the things I know will make me happy?

What doesn't make me happy is thinking about the things I'd like to do instead of doing them: taking photos of random things, like the flowers in the garden or people at the market, so I can start to build a real portfolio, or paint - I've had a 1000cm x 500cm canvas for almost three years now - it's still blank.

What will make me happy is only something I can give myself though - I am the only one who can make my happiness.
