I made these incredible Sharpie doodles over the weekend and it got me to thinking about Balance (reading True Balance!)
When I take time to draw (doodles or whatever) I feel more grounded. I don't always make time, or take time though. Why is this? I know it makes me feel good - I like the process almost more than the outcome. Why don't I do this on a regular basis instead of in fits and starts?
I have my "What is Balance?" doodle posted over my desk at work, but I'm thinking I need it posted everywhere, so that I see it often. Balance for me means allowing myself time to create as well as everything else (chores, playing, time with Mike, etc.)
I find when I take the time to doodle, especially on weekends, I start the week with a fulfilled feeling. Maybe I just need to write a post about this once a week to remind myself!
How do you all keep balance - if you know what balances you, do you do it? If not, why not? I'm trying to figure this out for myself. The grounded feeling I got over the weekend from spending a couple hours drawing was worth it! How can I remind myself to do this and then actually take the time to do it? Help! I'd love input.
