final shots from squam. sitting by the fire in a yoga pose penning takeaways.
filled with gratitude for the chance to spend a few days focused on creativity. definitely an area beckoning more attention from me (versus so much admin time). seems to be a common struggle, eh?
the thing about creativity is it isn't a luxury, it's a necessity. incorporating it everyday is essential.
an annual retreat is not enough.
this week, try to do one creative expression each day: take a photo on the way to work, stick a love note in your child's lunchbox, wear a new shade of lip gloss, try a new parfum, collage a vision board, pick up a new pair of earrings from a street vendor, try yin yoga, wear red, listen to a podcast, sip a blooming tea, meditate, plant mums, pull out your fall wardrobe and retire flip flops, go to an art exhibit, put up art postcards in your cubicle, peruse etsy, sit under a tree, pen your thoughts.
may you (and moi) continue to explore and become the person we are born to be.
