We are doing the 30 day journaling + meditation invitation for the month of August. An explanation of this project is here. I'll be posting an update here every day (M-F) for the month of August and I'm also doing short videos on Instagram to share things I am learning along the way.\
And check out the new Creative Dream Incubator RedBubble shop! THE MOST encouraging notebooks, zipper pouches, mugs, magnets, stickers + art prints.
I have a new awareness of my needs.
BEFORE: I'm sleepy/distracted/unfocused today! Here are the things I need to do to get myself moving: bike ride, coffee, meditation, nutrition, etc.
NOW: I'm sleepy/distracted/unfocused today! This makes sense. How can I give myself the space I need right now?
I'm going into a new season in my life, we start the Dream Loft Re-Construction next week. I am working on my new creative studio for my next-level dreams and creative projects.
And I know it's time for new approaches.
A whole new definition of trusting my creativity.
I know I am just seeing the tip of it, there is lots more to explore. Still, today, I feel so delighted by this one shift in approach. And I AM tired and distracted and feel like I NEED down-time even though I don't understand WHY, so I am going to go read a book.
Oh, wait, before I go...
Another new realization: putting creative heart-work out into the world has a bigger emotional component to it than I had realized.
Which is connected to the things I was exploring around "giving more time/energy to putting projects out into the world, instead of rushing into starting the next project, actually fuels ALL projects".
I did finish the Year of Dreams 2023. I even made a video about it and have a sales page.
AND I'm not ready to share it.
AND I think that's part of why I feel the way I feel today. I need downtime-as-a-way-of-supporting-congruence-between-all-parts-of-me-and-the-work-of-putting-this-project-out-there.
