Do you draw?
Do you paint?
Do you craft, scrapbook, garden, sing, play an instrument?
Do you dance, do you write or do you cook, bake or pickle veggies?
Do you coach a team or meditate?
What moves you? What heals and restores you ?
Is it something you share or something only for you? Or are you one of those fortunate ones that gets to do it AND be paid for it?
Is it something that gets left behind now that you are an adult and have to be grown up?
It’s hard to find time to give to yourself. Kids, work, study and life in general gets in the way and the opportunities to fulfil that personal need feel like they are better devoted to other ‘more important’ tasks. However, the peace, satisfaction and restorative value of doing something creative or nurturing cannot be over-exaggerated.
