Today some calm… No video 🙂
This is a retreat after all!
Yesterday I spoke about how learning to be your own teacher is the best way to make progress. We need to do the inner work. Whether your dream is more about the art of creation or growing a business, we always butt up against these mindset hurdles. So today is journal time.
We’ve talked already about how we go through different emotional states - especially while we are learning something new.
Giving ourselves grace is key to whether we stay the course. We know the path isn’t always going to be smooth, and journaling is a great way to allow these to come to the surface.
Today you’re going to tuck yourself away and write for 10 minutes or so. You can do free writing - just write - whatever comes up - keep going until you stop, and then some.
Or choose one of these prompts below. Whichever you feel most drawn to (or perhaps whichever one you would rather avoid!)
You can write in a notebook, I often use just scrap sheet paper, let my writing is messy. This is a process of letting your ideas and emotions rise up, and I usually don’t refer to these again.
If I fully trusted and believed my art could be anything I desired, what would I create?
Where am I holding myself back?
Where can I ask for more support?
Where am I ready to grow?
