Living A Life Worth Examining!

IMG_0152

Loved this afternoon as we collected Little Miss Popularity.  She had been having a holiday with her Grandparents, full of lap time, walks and lots and lots of attention.

We of course have just got back from our own holiday, and have missed her so much. Currently she is in the rumpus room, having lap time with Mr. Serious.

Loving tonight, as the young Mr. Serious cooked us a three-course meal, garlic bread, cheesy bacon macaroni dish, and chocolate pudding. Yummy! Also he did the dishes, scrubbing all the pots. Loving that.

Definitely enjoyed today!

To the Ultimate Blog Challenge: Who do you most admire and why? 

I admire Julia Cameron, for her work especially the books that  she has written to help her fellow creatives to break through blocks and get back in touch with their creative work or hobbies

I admire her for her own creative body of work. Mostly I am grateful that I have been exposed to her books and tools. My life is so much more deeper and enjoyable now that I do my morning pages daily and go on weekly Artist’s Dates. I have enjoyed the process of getting back in touch with my creativity.

“We’ve all heard that the unexamined life is not worth living, but consider too that the unlived life is not worth examining.” ~Julia Cameron, from The Artist’s Way.

She encourages her readers to live fully, and live the life that is true to who we are, not the life we think we should live, rather the life that our soul calls us to live. We are encouraged to listen to that quiet voice inside us, and allow it to get louder and stronger. Our quiet voice is the inner voice of the soul, it guides us to really live life in a way that supports who we authentically are.

I continue to work through her books, to learn a little bit more about myself, and to know that my age doesn’t mater. It is never to late to work on your own creativity. Thankfully this opens the way for possibilities.

“No matter what your age or your life path, whether making art is your career or your hobby or your dream, it is not too late or too egotistical or too selfish or too sill to work on your creativity.” ~Julia Cameron, from The Artist’s Way

Wishing you all a wonderful day!
