I have been struggling with my creative practice a bit. What was an amazing anchor for me became something I just slowly let slip each day. I’m not sure why. The only thing I am sure of is that creativity is something that holds me, restores me and keeps me grounded in who I am. Yet I repeatedly let it go when I start to slip into a bit of a funk.
Today, however, I jumped back in and started back up. Each day, even when not actively doing my practice, I knew it was there waiting for me. I believe that offered some comfort and gave me some grounded energy even when I wasn’t actively practicing.
Yoga feels that way to me sometimes. I am working back into a practice and I can feel the mat just softly waiting for me knowing that unless I am ready it won’t hold me in the way it should.
Some things in life cannot be forced.
I would argue nothing worth having can be forced.
So today I have reconnected with my creative practice. Gently, easily and I can already feel myself calmer and more me.
Here’s to knowing that what we need is always available to us.
Until next time….
