Today, whilst enjoying a day of genuine relaxation – no tasks required, other than the basic eating and sleeping – I completed a project. Not unusual for me in a year, but unusual in the everyday, or at least, unusual to be noted in the everyday. As I have sat, music playing, hands busy creating, I came up with this idea.
I am notorious for magpie-ing ideas, gathering them safely for ‘one day’ then letting these ideas sit untouched as daily existence ‘gets in the way’. Well, not this year, this is the year in which I exercise my creativity in a mindful way, each day.
I shall create something every day for 365 days. There are no limits to this creativity (at least, none I’ve thought of yet) it could be a photograph, a piece of writing, making something different in the kitchen, crochet, knitting, doodling – these are just the things I enjoy. I hope other people might inspire me as this year progresses.
Perhaps others might join me on the journey, at least part of the way #creative365
