My Story: 365 day blog challenge Day 74 Being Creative

365 Day Blog Post Challenge 2019
Day 74
384.  How much time can you realistically dedicate to your creative work each week?

Prior to committing to this 365 day blog challenge, I would say that I dedicate almost zero hours for creativity each week.  Several years ago I kept a gratitude journal.  Everyday I would take a picture of something that I was grateful for and then write a small little journal entry about the picture.  That was a great creative outlet.  I guess I find that I have to challenge myself to something before I give myself permission to take the time to do the things that I enjoy.  Similar to this 365 day blog post challenge.  If I did not make the commitment to do this, I’m sure I would find 100 excuses to do other things and not give myself the time to sit down and write each day.

One thing other then blogging and journaling that I would really like to have more time to do that helps me feel creative is scrapbooking.  I used to spend many hours scrapbooking and eventually just stopped doing it because I had so many other things going on in life.  It’s amazing how work, errands, cooking, cleaning and family obligations always take precedence over getting to do the things that we enjoy.  Being creative is so important for are sanity.  It should be just as much of a priority as all the other “life” things.
