Breaking Through

I captured this pic at the dog park yesterday morning and it pretty much sums up how I've been feeling lately... trying to break through.
Have you ever felt like your creative spirit has gone into hibernation? I've been feeling my creative spirit isn't shining as bright as it should be. I don't mean this in a bad way. It's strange how I'll be so inspired and creating like mad and then just like that - it shuts off. We have had such a mild winter here - It really hasn't been as depressing as it can be. We've had almost no snow and the temps have been warmer than usual. The crazy creative runs (and I don't mean runs like running on the street) haven't really been frequent enough lately. Why, I wonder? I know there are times for everything/seasons in our lives, for family, for fun, for exploring, for growing, and even time for hibernating. Last year about this time I was really getting into the Goddess Circle - and all the meditations she offered and classes, I was constantly creating (while working full time!) And I got to thinking... why aren't I creating like I was last year at this time? 

When I close my eyes and ask my creative spirit what it needs...
I hear...
Time to follow those passions. Time to explore them. Time to sit with them. Time to mull them over. Time to prefect them. Time to create. Time to get inspired. Time for just me and my passion. Time for my dreams. MAKE THE TIME.
Clear and create space in my life, and  in my busy schedule.
Because if I don't who will?
My husband won't. My best friend won't. My mom won't.
It has to come from me.
I have to make it a priority.
How do you make art and creative time a priority? Do you pencil yourself into your planner?

  1. Yes, I have. In fact, it's just been a few weeks ago when I felt that way. Something sparked within me and now I'm on a botanical role. Hee

    Great photo from the dog park and really like your new header. Hugs :)
