The Creatives | October '16
"Creative self-care...what do you think this is and how do we maintain it?"
We find in discussion together that it is first, the awareness of self-care. When one has an understanding of what one needs to be whole and well, we then can better nurture our creative spirits further.
Creative self-care can be each-other, quiet, loud, a lot or a little. It can be doing something tangible like reading a book or doing something intangible, like being quiet and reflecting.
I sense we all need to be supported in ways that will protect our tenderness, yet also push our strength.
I sense that when we allow ourselves to trust that the season we are in is the right season, no matter how debilitating or brilliant, that we will gain not just the surface from it, but the depths of it. That brilliance is not just shine, it is quality work. That debilitation isn't just dark, it is illumination of truth.
I sense that we all want seasons where we are something like creative gold, yet, I also think it's the realness of our other seasons that create that gold.
So may we be gold makers. Seekers of more than just the shine, but of the deep.
