I have been “hibernating”. I have been spending time “within” both physically and mindfully. Now, I am just on the edge of being ready to get out there and connect with others! I am preparing to get back to the re-awakening of the earth and to exploring creatively. To expand and join with others and learn about what they have been experiencing these past few months.
I continue to see how my work and life intertwine. Every action I take connects to something or someone else. I want to continue to explore this, as it is a wonderful way of creating my life, my daily experiences.
The boundaries are a bit blurred. When am I connecting as a friend and when is it business? They seem to overlap more and more and I want to explore this idea. I want to integrate all that I do each day.
Here is how I am going to get out there with integrity to my personal message.
This year is all about “clarity” for me. Here is a list of what I am getting clear on right now:
Working and Connecting in my new job:
I want to connect with others in my new work environment; Ottawa County Parks. I want to look others in the eye and hear their stories. The county park life brings with it much value in the area of community involvement and outdoor life. I am looking at all of the options and seeing which fit into my life right now. Taking this slow, as there is so much being offered. I will be fully present in connecting during my work with colleagues and the greater community of my new work environment.
Inner Creative Voice Newsletter/website:
For years I have focused on blogging about “one simple creative thing” each day. I use my original blog to house those creative explorations. I am taking a deeper look at what I offer through my written words, on-line connections and e-courses. I will be modifying my website soon. I am clearing out much of what does not serve anymore. I will be getting very clear in my creative work and the simple need to overhaul what is in need of being let go. Look for some changes in the next few months to my website. Clarity and simplicity are in order. My newsletter will still run each week (I love this connection!) However, I will be letting go of face-to-face sessions as I move forward into creating in a new community in this next phase of my life’s work. My website will be focusing on “Creative Captures” (an e-course set to open in June), Tarot readings (through email) and Sunday Check-ins offerings several times a year. I appreciate the on-line community I have formed here and want to stream-line my work to reflect that.
I will begin to go on artist dates again. This time I am planning to visit places out in nature and have my camera ready.
In order for this to happen, I need to create a schedule that works within my day. Here is what it will look like:
- Plan artist dates, nature walks and lunches these will be set into my planner.
- Photograph “creative captures” on my phone
- Upload “creative captures” each day onto my Instagram page
This feels good. I am happy to be getting clear as my life continues to shift and change. Letting go is difficult for me…I love to hang on until the bitter end! But I have found, this does not always serve
Time to sing more for the joy of it with WoodSong 🙂
Where are you seeing things getting “clear” in your creative life?
