I’m rolling into the new week after a wonderful weekend. I didn’t have any big plans. I didn’t rush around on errands.
I did simple things, like go on a hike with my son. Enjoy a bagel and chai at the local coffee shop. Read a book or two. Print some images. Create some new ones, like this one I call “Twizzly Trees.”
Everything is flowing right now. I’m creating with ease. There is no pushing through, no trying to pull something out that doesn’t want to come.
It’s been like this for the last few weeks. When I sit down to write, the words just come. When I want to work on images, things come together nicely. And if they don’t, I just stop. There will be another moment, tomorrow or the day after, that I can come back to it if I need to.
Part of me holds back, nervous for this ease. Looking to the future, thinking, When is it going to end? But there is a part of me that knows. It doesn’t have to end. This is what happens when you align with your heart. When you stop worrying about rules or external expectations, and follow your joy.
How about you? Are you creating with ease?
Today is the last day to link in to the Photo-Heart Connection for this month! I am so amazed by this month’s connections. It seems this practice is really deepening for many of you, as it is for me. I’ll draw for the winner of the “Windblown” print tomorrow morning from all of you who participated this month. I printed it yesterday and it came out awesome. I’m so excited to send it out into the world to one of you!
