Today was one of those frustrating days where I feel like I'm bouncing around between ideas and activities like a ball in a pinball machine. It started off pretty well, and I got some painting done, then I started bouncing around. I still haven't found my center, my creative rhythm, since the holidays spun me so far off balance, and today was just further proof of that.
At about 4:00 I finally called a halt and stopped. Earlier I had read an idea on Accidental Creative, a site I've recently discovered, and I decided to give it a try right then and there.
"Spend 20 minutes in silence. No distractions, no noise, no tech stuff. Breathe deeply. Then re-engage."
It worked wonders. I lit a candle, drank a cup of tea, and now I feel so much better. I recommend it highly. Over the next few days, I'm going to focus on regaining my creative balance. I'll let you know how it goes.
