Hey, everyone. Rebecca here again.
Have you gone on your Artist Date this week?
I haven’t, either.
Isn’t it funny how something that sounds so fun can be so hard to prioritize? I wouldn’t break a date with my husband. I wouldn’t ditch a friend’s party or cancel a doctor’s appointment. But spending time alone, soaking in inspiration to do the things I love? Well, putting that off is as easy as skipping a workout – another thing I know can only do me good.
So, in the spirit of the famous last-chance workout on “The Biggest Loser,” I’m proposing a Last Chance Artist Date for this week!
Browse the books and magazines at a library or bookstore. Rent a movie. Go to a costume shop. See an art exhibit. Visit a fall festival, an art supply store, or craft shop. Pick a project to tackle, and run out for supplies.
I know, according to TAW, we should go on our Artist Date alone. But sometimes, that just doesn’t work out, especially on the weekends. Don’t let that stop you. Yes, we need to make time to be creative and seek out inspiration, but the occasional Artist Date with a date, friend or kids in tow is far better than no Artist Date at all.
What are you planning (or what did you do) for your Artist Date this week? There’s still time to get that Last Chance Artist Date in! Let’s go!!!
