With each passing year the phrase “Time Flies” takes on greater meaning. Days fly by…weeks fly by…months fly by and before you know it it’s been thirty years since you graduated from high school…twenty years since you got married…fourteen years since your baby was born…and ten years since the final episode of Friends aired. (I’m speaking for myself...please feel free to insert your own milestones.)
So here’s my thinking, since time seems to fly by faster than ever, why not spend a little more of that precious time enjoying the creative experiences that energize and delight you? Playing the piano and singing…writing that book…learning to watercolor…taking a cooking class…planting a garden…knitting a sweater…again, feel free to insert your own creative joys of choice here.
As a creativity coach, one of my passions is helping people make more time and space in their busy lives for their own Creative Oasis™ – which to me is anything that makes your heart sing and time fly!
Creating Time for Your Creative Oasis™
my new 12-week teleclass beginning September 18th, is designed to help you do just that.
What’s one small way you might spend more time having fun with your creative pursuits?
What if you…
…call a friend and set up a creative play date?
…give yourself permission to enjoy some creative time rather than watching a TV show or getting lost in your Facebook feed?
…pull a craft down off the shelf and set a timer for 10 minutes of creative fun?
I’ll leave you with this powerful quote and hope that it inspires you to look for new ways to spend time enjoying your own Creative Oasis™today. (For lots more ideas, prompts and support – join me for CreatingTime for Your Creative Oasis beginning September 18th!)
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
– Mark Twain
Until next time, all the best from my Creative Oasis™ to yours,
Jill Allison Bryan
