The last several weeks ZAPPED my energy. I am not sure if it is because I had been going strong and am just coming through the natural cycle of creativity or if arriving at the 5 month mark since starting this art biz endeavor full time has shaken me up a little bit. Either way, I am not one to hang out in limbo for long, especially when I have things to do. (I was accepted for the Festival for the Arts and want to arrive there feeling like I have something inspirational to offer.)
So, keeping in mind the strong value I place on self-care, I started looking for gentle ways to get back in the game.
The answer: an art retreat for one.
I have been swinging back and forth throughout the day from nurturing myself to focusing on my work. It is amazing how different something can feel when it is framed through a new lens.
I have been so inspired by the process that I want to share it with you in hopes that you might find ways to energize your work routine, your weekend, or your life with self-care and creativity.
I will be updating my Facebook page throughout the weekend to keep you up to date on my celebration of re-creation. If you haven’t already done so, please accept my invitation to join Creativity Tribe. I would love to hear how you practice self-care and what you are doing to encourage creativity in your life.
