A little morning doodle to start the day. I was just sharing with someone the importance of carving out sacred creative sandbox playtime, disconnected from commerce or obligation, *especially* for those of us who blend our creativity into our businesses. I have to continually remind *myself* to do this! It is way too easy to fall into the trap of thinking that the creative work I do for my business feeds me enough to satisfy my creative hungers. But that’s like believing you’ll get all the nourishment you need from, I don’t know, a steady diet of celery or something. I mean, celery might be good for you, but it’s not going to give you ALL the nutrients you need!! You ALSO need some other foods in there!
Those other foods are a metaphor for the creative things you do purely for PLAY and FUN. They are actually necessary for your health and well-being. They’re not dessert, they are true nourishment. So make time for them on a regular basis. Even if it’s just a few minutes. It will make a difference.
