Social Distancing & Creativity

We’re adjusting to this whole social distancing thing, and I hope the same is true for you and yours! May this update find you healthy, safe, and sane 🙂

When this shift began, I told myself that I’d just hunker down with my beads and my seeds and do my best to create and grow my way through this whole experience. While that’s still the ideal, my muse (and my focus!) are currently MIA.

At first, I was angry with myself about this. I should be “using this time productively” and “finishing all those projects”! Now I’m just breathing through those expectations, and letting them go. Seeds are planted, and I’ve got creative projects on the table. More importantly, everyone that I love is still upright and adapting.

My creative work is happening slowly, and I’ve decided to go easy on myself and accept that. I hope you’re all cutting yourselves a bit of slack right now too… you don’t HAVE to start a new project or knock out all those chores. Just breathe. Love your people, stay human, stay home, and be well.
