My home pattern energetically is Swing and I love diversity and playing with interdisciplinary ideas. I fully embrace my propensity for multiplicity and my very human need for nurturing.
Years of struggle, dips, and turns have led me to the realization that I can rely on my ability to nurture myself, to give myself what I need.
I spent the last week with 3 of my 5 grandchildren–Chase & Jenny (7) and Bailey (2). I love them dearly and we have great fun playing together. In fact, they are my play mentors!
Our days were busy with trips to school and daycare, meals, homework, and playing outdoors at the park. While the kids were at school and after they went to bed for the night I dove into my work–writing, planning, and creating. I am super excited about Flora Bowley’s ‘Creative Revolution’ e-Course and I brought along my memoir’s edited manuscript, a few books to read, and a huge DESIRE TO CREATE.
Today I have a runny, stuffy nose and achy body. I am staying home knowing that my body is calling me to slow down and rest following an intensive week. I realized during the week spent at my daughter’s that I was feeling frustrated. My creative muse is calling and I want play with the creative exercises, paint, try out some new art materials, meditate, dance, listen to some great music ++ I am committed to completing my memoir and sending a book proposal off to a publisher and literary agent.
During the week I was aware of two strong feelings:
- This time with my grandchildren is precious.
- I want to spend time creating.
Push & Pull
So today I am nurturing my body, spirit, soul, heart. All of me.
I’m writing and playing with paint.
I’m musing and exploring passages from books that call me to open them.
What about you? How are you nurturing your writer? your artist?
What is your creative muse saying to you?
What one thing do you need today?
