It's taken me all week to get a chance to sit down and write this blog for the prompt I posted on Monday! I'm sitting here shaking my head that I wrote a prompt about process when I have had a week where my routine and process was thrown out the window due to lots of factors including exhaustion. Last night I was able to get some good sleep and actually slept in - I woke up rejuvenated and the ready to write!
|Me in the tulips at the Atlanta Botanical Garden - where inspiration and creativity "bloom!"|
So when I think about this prompt and my life I remember some truths for myself - I must take care of the basics in my life in order to have my best life. So for me that means: Good Sleep (7 1/2-8hrs a night), Clean eating and daily exercise. This leads to my artistic flow and creating space where my creativity blooms.

I have found since joining the Daily Creative Practice Group and being conscious of doing something creative everyday (even if I don't get a chance to post about it) I am open to even more creativity in my life. It's like my yoga, gratitude or Flylady practice - 15 minutes a day makes a big difference in the quality of my life! Sometimes that is all I have - 15 min. to write a quick poem or blog, snap a few pictures to post or dance a dance in Interplay with a friend.
As I sit here writing to you, I stop to take a deep breath in and release it. I have missed this process this week. Writing brings me joy and I love sharing it with you. I thank you for being "out there" to receive it.
Wrapping you around with infinite love and peace,
