I took my daughter to a drawing class in January. She loves art. She’s a rather outgoing child and art gives her a quiet place. Before we began drawing, the instructor asked Lila: Do you know what commitment means?
I didn’t always rise early. Then again I didn’t always go to bed early either. I am sure we all go through a stage of staying up late finding our muse at 2AM looking for some kind of break through. A sketch book, headphones and music, a laptop and a few ideas: I loved my distraction-free creative time. That was until my beautiful kids came along. As early risers, they didn’t care Dad only got four hours sleep.
But we adapt.
Take the time.
The other day I was taking a walk listening to music that helps me shed the stress of the day. I had a self-conscious thought is it weird that I have to listen to music on a walk to find my center? Afterwards I compared it to an equally negative thought and it occurred to me. Nope I’d rather err on weird than negative. To me that sums up meditation. Every day I take 8 to 10 minutes to breathe, let go, and feel out whatever is going on inside my body. It’s actually liberating and I highly recommend it. Get the FREE DIGITAL WALL ART.
