During the Creative Process
Words are like food.
They ‘feed’ us.
They can be powerful, debilitating, liberating, limiting, infused with energy, sorrowful, joyful, expressive and at the right time.
I find I need good words in my life to steer me. To bring to remembrance what matters, what is real, what is TRUTH.
I’ve always kept quotes and notes jotted in worn journals, within easy reach.
I’ve written affirmations and laminated them to stick around places in my home.
I have some well worn and loved books stashed in various comfy seats around my place to pick up and to be delighted within their pages at a moments notice.
We are all consumers.
With a steady diet of ‘junk food’ on every corner (conversations, headlines and our own ‘voices in the head’ that stir up fears and uncertainties) it really matters to make sure we are getting enough ‘good stuff’ in our diet ;-).
So I’ve been adding words I like, that cause me to pause and look within again, to various places in my home.
They make me stop and think. I find myself sometimes mid day making my way to one to simply stop and read it.
I have a new one coming in a few weeks (photo below), ordered from SugarbooandCo.com. I already have a spot picked out for it…just above my tub.
End of day, letting go, resetting for this one wild and precious life we’ve been given.
Note: I’d love for you to add some words and joy to your life….so I am giving away a $100 gift card to do your own shopping at Sugarboo and Co.!
I’d like to know….What words do you surround yourself with?
