Give yourself permission; enjoy nature, explore and create.

“Hello Mr. Bee! Whatcha’ doing?”
*

I slept in this morning (yes!). I’ve had a lot going on recently, nothing negative, just busy. But I haven’t been sleeping well. I’m rather a nut about staying balanced in my life so I’ve been frustrated over my inability to sleep soundly lately.

I did all the “tried and true” methods with no success and then a few days ago I sat quietly by myself and considered – everything! And then I moved the things on my agenda aside (those I could) and went completely into artistic mode.

I gave myself permission to enjoy being creative, by first spending some time in the world of nature (maybe not as close up as this amazing photo of a dog and bee (LOL), still I did really immerse myself and then I began to sketch and draw, the results to be shown soon on a forthcoming blog!

And guess what? I am now sleeping like a log. Giving myself over to art and nature and then some private artisitc time did the trick. Helped me balance the rest of my “have-to” activities!

This weekend, give yourself permission to be! Both relaxed and creative. Your mind, body and soul will thank you for it!

Hope you’re enjoying your weekend~
