A different way to create

Do you find yourself just going through the motions day after day? Do you ever feel like you are stuck in a rut? Do you feel overwhelmed by life? I do—quite often these days. With all of the health issues in my family, life is often an endless stream of tests, setting up doctor appointments, going to doctor appointments, and playing catch up because of it all.

I really like being able to have chunks of time to just wander (mentally or physically). It helps me restore, it helps me create. i realize today that I am going to have to find a new way to chunk out time.

I feel a STRONG urge to declutter and organize. The year is whizzing by and I have a multitude of uncompleted tasks and unfiled paperwork. That always makes me crazy and always makes me feel like a deer in headlights.

So—yesterday I went through my closet. Today I will begin attacking my piles of paperwork. Normally on my birthday I would dash about and do fun things. But today—-I am going to take care of myself in an atypical way. I am going to hold my feet to the proverbial fire and get some things done. i know doing that will make me feel terrific. I have my bags all set to fill for my run to Goodwill. I saw a great blog online about organizing paperwork. I will post about it if it actually helps me.

Creativity can take many forms. I often think of creativity as exclusively expressed in: artwork; writing; interior design; photography; gardening; and cooking. Today I am going to use my creativity in how I use my time.

Yeah—this is one of those postings where I reach the end and am not thrilled with what is here. But that dissatisfied feeling is only going to go away if I de-clutter and organize. So off I go. happy monday!

Be brave enough to live creatively
