Before the Creative Process
Today, make sure to do one thing (at least one) that is something that you are really wanting to do.
Maybe make a painting (even a wee one in watercolor!)
Or make an apple pie from scratch (yes, I made this. No, it’s not exactly perfectly shaped but it was good enough to eat, which if you bake something AND eat it then that counts for doing TWO things that you really want to do….!)
Add something to this day that brings pleasure, joy, and smiles.
You are so worthy of heaping loads of love and self-care on!
Do at least one thing that you really want to do.
I dare you 😉
It’s easy to forget that we have the power to do this.
We get busy with real-life stuff and forget to do the simple things that help lift our spirits in all the right places.
So what’s it gonna be? Here’s mine so far…
🍁 An old movie (Don Juan de Marco—I’ve been wanting to rewatch this one…hello Johnny Depp ;-)!)
🍁 A beautiful glass to sip an excellent wine from my favorite restaurant in Tuscany? (Hello La Osteria and Max! Who knew you could have a case of wine shipped from Certaldo, Italy to Paris, Kentucky!!)
🍁 Ten minutes in the sun, shoes off, feet in grass, examining the beauty of a singular fallen leaf. (See what comes up in your heart when you do this—I was amazed for myself when I did this!)
I can hear your wheels turning!
Tell me more dear friend.
What things bring you joy?
Make sure in all your doing today, do something you really want to do.
See just how good it will make you feel!

This is October’s oil painting that we’re doing in my Flow Monthly Membership, and yes, I really wanted to paint this place!
A winery in the south of France that I embraced every inch of while sipping vino and having a slice of Brigette Bardot cake with a merry band of creatives!!
