52 weeks of pagan art journaling: week 31

This week's prompt: Creativity



I've written about how important I think it is to make time for creativity before, but now that I'm struggling to find that time, I find myself really thinking again about what creativity means to me in my daily life. Obviously it's easier in some situations versus others to find that time to make it habit.

Now I find myself breaking my creativity into small components. Squeezing in what I can, when I can. The interesting benefit to this (as I've seen it in my scrapbooking) is that it actually prompts me to think out my intentions behind the art I'm doing. I've always been more of fly by the seat of your pants type of creator.

Oddly enough I sort of appreciate this new life lesson in creativity. I like seeing the differences that occur and then pondering the nature of inspired free form creativity vs inspired intentional creativity. I haven't come to any conclusions on the matter, but then again, I'm not really looking to find any answers. I'm just enjoying the process.

I love how, just when I think I'm starting to figure it out, life comes along, changes things up, and teaches me a new lesson of appreciation in creativity!
