Day 6

Making a new schedule to include some relax time was a priority for me this weekend, so it's appropriate that it was one of the possible tasks for today. After almost 3 weeks with our new not-so-well-trained-but-beautiful dog, and not a minute to myself it's seemed, I have been working on re-arranging my weekly schedule altogether to take the stress off. I've sublet some office space to see clients in (dogs and therapy clients don't fit too well, at least not this dog, right now), and organized for Bo to be walked 3 days/week, and made that hour 3 times/week as my creative time. And I'm going to try to stick to it. I may have to see clients occasionally, but I'm really going to try to paint, write, and daydream during that time. It's nice to have a set time for it. It makes it seem more important, which of course I know as soon as I start doing it. There is hardly anything more satisfying actually. I've also planned for a massage and a haircut for tomorrow. And some long dog walks. Looking forward to stretching out in my weekend. And doing some collaging tomorrow! I've peeked ahead, and tomorrow's exercises look especially good.

3 hours a week for creative time. WHat a treat - kudos for setting that soul time up for yourself.

Congratulations on creating studio time! I've been toying with a similar commitment and you're inspiring me to go for it!

yea!! Jamie, do it!
Some of the most magical times I've had in the last while have been while writing. It sometimes brings me in touch with a way of seeing, or a part of myself, that feels SO much bigger than the everyday self. It feels sacred to me that we all have such time.
