C is for Creativity

Creativity is my life. A day not created is a day not lived for me. I need to create to find my joy and to find the words I want to share.

Case in point, yesterday.

I had a cruddy day yesterday. I didn’t feel good at all, and I lacked in self-care. I didn’t take pain meds, I didn’t use aromatherapy, I just felt like crap and didn’t care that I did.

I didn’t write my B-post and told myself I didn’t care about the challenge anymore.

Only much later in the day, after I had to cancel an appointment due to a full-blown headache, I remembered this month’s quest.

I took pain meds and crawled in bed. I took a half hour nap that did wonders. I used some aromatherapy and nestled in the pillows.

And then, around 10 PM, I finally wrote my blog post, in ten minutes flat. And I made a logo to go with it, Just because I could.

I also wrote some poetry and made a list on a new creative project for my bullet journal.

At the end of all that, I wrote this as inspiration for today’s post:

I think that needs to be my mantra 🙂

  1. A great reminder of the need to care for ourselves. I like that quote you included as a mantra at the end. i may have to find one for myself. Good luck on the rest of the challenge.

    1. It is indeed so very easy to ignore. Not anymore! It is very confronting at times to write about it, but it helps me a great deal (just wait and see what I wrote for F for instance!!)

  2. Wonderful inspiration. I too have taken charge of my own creativity. I realize without proper rest or exercise, and mental and spiritual breaks, that I suffer. I aim for balance the spiritual physical, and mental.
