I think what I’m struggling with right now is — how to focus on the work itself and just enjoy it.

Oh my goodness, yes. I can relate to everything you said here too. I definitely go through periods all the time where I feel like my art isn’t good enough or just feeling stuck. But I think it’s good sometimes to feel that way. If we were always content with our work, there would never be the motivation to push forward, explore, and experiment. The feeling of dissatisfaction is probably just a clue that we’re on the cusp of a breakthrough, but it sure doesn’t feel that way when we’re going through it! I agree it’s good to take breaks and relax every now and then. But it’s also important to get back to it, and not let that 1–2 day break turn into a 5 year break!
