Happy You Did

sunflower patchI think it is important to go on play dates. If you’ve ever read Julia Cameron’s book, The Artists Way, then you know what I’m talking about.

I was working through her book last summer and felt very centered in life. My focus was clear. Then things got busy and I fell back into old habits. I realized last week that I haven’t had an artist play date in several months.

The premise of a play date is go on weekly adventures and do something you love. Give yourself the gift of time and adventure.

I made time this past weekend to got on a road trip. Along the journey I passed this awesome sunflower patch on the side of the road. I really don’t know why it was there, but I did know I needed to stop and take pictures. The entire day felt right.

Have you treated yourself to a play date lately? What is one thing you enjoy doing, but haven’t in a while? Why not give yourself that treat? I bet you’ll be happy you did.
