Sometimes I just forget that I’m not superwoman and that I can’t do everything and that I need to listen to my body and give myself a rest and a break. I get into this place where I’m walking around with this idea that I have to be creative every single minute of every single day, and if I’m not, I’m wasting my precious life. And I get stressed (ohhhh noooo) when new ideas aren’t flooding my mind all the time and I’m not creating all the time.
Sometimes life happens like this past week where every day I had something that came up. Monday morning the water hose to my fridge broke and luckily I was home when the water started gushing out all over. (There was lots of towels to wash) The next day I had to go to the ear doctor and the next to the dentist (also not planned) and in between I also went to work. I also had scheduled for my windows to be cleaned on another day and so I had workers here and cleaning up to do, and before I knew it the week was gone and I felt like I didn’t do anything, anything creative that is. I am at my most creative in the morning, I love doing my ritual, having breakfast, writing in my journal… that’s how I start my mornings, but when stuff happens nothing creative gets done.
And so I have to remind myself every so often that, I don’t have to be creative every minute of every day. Sometimes I don’t get anything done even when there is no stuff happening to interrupt my day, and that’s ok too. And that creativity can show up at the most unexpected moment, when I least expect it, like the idea to write this blog post. And sometimes I need to follow the rhythm of my own self, and not hold myself up to some out of reach schedule and ideals that are impossible to meet, I’m not superwoman. And sometimes life just happens and I need to go with the flow of it all.
But in between all that I did manage to take some photos this past week while out shopping. (Big smile)
And so life continues to show up sometimes expected and at others totally unexpected and I’m reminding myself to just go with the flow…
