This piece "the art of balance" is still not finished. There are changes to be made, bits to be added..but I thought it quite relevant to where I'm at right now...
I need to make some changes and find that point of balance again! I like to think I am a work in progress too :)
I have been feeling soooo inspired lately. I haven't been so productive (creatively) in a LONG time...which is just AMAZING! Fills me with so much JOY!
However, as I'm sure ALL you creative peeps out there know... this creativity often comes at the expense of other aspects of life. For me it's not been in the most obvious of ways ...but the subtle hints are now fairly blatant!
Time has begun to feel like the enemy.. so much to do and so little of it...I know you all KNOW!! And I am aware of being far less present ...its the bemused faces of the kids as they ask me a question for the 50th time and finally get an answer as I snap out of my little creative daydream!
I would like to comment on the housework being neglected but if truth be told it has never really been high on my list of priorities!! :0/
So I am TRYING to let go of this frenzied feeling that EVERYTHING has to be done now!! I should really have a sign taped up saying "step away from the sewing machine". That would probably go a BIG way to restoring some balance :) I am trying to just enjoy the moments when I am free to be creative....not be so fixated on cramming as much as possible in!! Quality not quantity comes to mind!
There will always be room for improvement , of this I am in no doubt!!
I guess I'll always be a work in progress :)
I'd LOVE to hear how all you wonderfully creative people out there manage to restore some kind of equilibrium in your lives. All suggestions welcome :)
