I have three responses to this week’s prompt:
- More time playing
- More time accomplishing nagging tasks
- More time living in my body
For me, the hardest part of The Artist’s Way is the weekly artist’s date. I have a very difficult time relaxing enough to just enjoy something pleasantly silly. I’d like to spend a little more time planning and enjoying these dates, so I can give myself the opportunity to be joyful and exuberant and delighted and other such adjectives.
At the same time, I’d also like to claim a little time each week to do the things I put off. Like it or not, my car needs to be vacuumed, the kitchen cupboards need to cleaned, and my clothes need to be rearranged for winter. I want to create a time to accomplish some of those things I’ve been procrastinating on so diligently.
Being In My Body
I over-think; I spend a lot of time in my head. Every once in a while, I want to spend some of that time in my body. I want to put my body’s needs first; I want act and react instead of wait and contemplate. I’m pretty happy with my body, so I’d like to make sure I spend some time appreciating it and enjoying it.
