I came across this photograph I took at a friend's place years ago. It always makes me smile and seemed like the perfect image with which to create this Mid-Week Oasis Moment:
"Learn to let go. This is the secret of happiness."
Reading this quote, this question came to mind:
When giving ourselves permission to spend time with the creative pursuits we love, what would be helpful for us to let go?
What if we practice gently letting go of:
* the need to please everyone else
* inner critic voices
If these seem too daunting, what if you practiced letting go of them just 5% more?
What if you start by simply reading the words, feeling a glimmer of hope and thinking:
"Hey! Wouldn't that be awesome if I let go of 5% of my perfectionism today and just enjoyed my creative process?"
Here's to letting go of the thoughts and feelings that don't serve us and embracing our creative spirit instead!
All the best from my Happy Creative Oasis to yours,
