I think this winter time block is an annual thing. Something to do with the end of the sales season and the self examination involved in applications. So i am working on ways to reawaken my creativity. Today, I feel like making lists.
Enjoying a good video game to relax. Kitting to keep on creating without the self pressure. Morning pages to get stuff out of my head. Reading about gemstones and writing down the stuff I'm learning. Thinking about the types of pieces i'll want for each show i plan to attend this year. Thinking about the people I meet through shows and the internet who are so wonderful, inquisitive and supportive. Making lists. Enjoying an espresso drink or cup of tea. The times when someone makes you a sandwich as they're making their own.
Beautiful things. My daughter dancing, snowdrops, my little son's tiny lego creations, my big son's programs in Scratch, friends who bake, my spouse, melting snow, clusters of crystals, workout buddies, sun streaming through the windows, warm puffy clothes and blankets. Jewelry magazines and websites. Drafting pencils, markers in every color, excellent erasers. Picture windows, books, good tv shows. Beautiful hair. An outfit put together with great fashion sense. Art.
Mindful things. Going to the gym. A well made shopping list. The week's laundry. The evening checklist. The morning checklist. The day's reminders. Good meals. Quiet time.
How do you get back into your stride?
What do you make lists about?
