"The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.” --Sarah Ban Breathnach
It seems as if my shoulders are a little less tight today, my breathing more even and deep.
I am content.
Yesterday I was a dreamer and a doer and I adore days like that.
A trip to an art exhibit at a local college,
thrifting with a friend,
a journaling session, working on old pages, prepping new ones
drawing practice in my newly and thankfully clean art room
a bit of late-night exercise
Even though those last three things are usually written on my to-do list they are much too often ignored.(especially the exercise part). Rarely do I accomplish all I set out to do in one day.
If I take the time to truly listen I can hear my heart telling me that art and exercise and meditation are the keys to living my authentic life. Why do I make it so difficult? Why do I so often put myself, my health last?
Is there something you long to do but aren't?
I have another list today and there alongside good family time, housework and grocery shopping are written the words--"take time to do something for yourself!"
And I will. I have made myself a promise I intend to keep this time.
Blessings for a lovely creative Sunday,
