This week was all about self-protection and I have to admit that it’s taken me a little bit to get through this one because I’ve been so swamped with my uni work but never to fear I’m back on track with it. The themes covered were dangers of the trails, workaholism (so guilty here), drought, fame and competition, which all definitely are factors when it comes to sabotaging creativity.
Morning Pages: I was consistent on and off and I can feel when I don’t do them because I get a bit itchy with the need to actually get myself writing on the page, I’m taking this as a sign. Also the more I tended to be distracted by guys the more I want to write in it…maybe they’re sapping my creativity… oh and I totally filled up an entire notebook with words. I don’t think I’ve ever actually done that in my life…
Artist’s Date: I did this! I took myself to Officeworks and printed off things that I needed but also just walked around the aisles and maybe looked at pens I could buy (and then didn’t because I know better).
Challenges: Finding something to do for myself every day. I found that I started off really well and then slowly let it slip. I think it’s definitely something I need to make time to do, because I enjoy taking a moment to just sit with it and really making sure that I do do something for me.
Synchronicities: I did find myself pushing myself to try and get a balance between work, life and study and slowly did find it, but only then found that Uni ended and now I’m left with trying to figure out what I need to do now. Ha!
