Lately, I've been carrying my camera with me everywhere I go! At work, while running errands, I even brought it with me on a date this week. I am committed to finding time for creativity, and now in my life, photography is the chosen outlet. Last night, I took a few photographs after dinner with friends at Ocean Beach, and a few photos today while walking between meetings along Market street in San Francisco. It doesn't have to take long, just a bit of time for yourself. You may have other creative outlets. I've also written poetry and short stories to scratch my creative itch. I find time to create frees my mind, if only temporarily, from the daily stresses and responsibilities which raise my blood pressure.
I know I am not alone in this. I often hear colleagues overburdened at work use the term, "burned out." When I talk to my loves in Texas, everyone is always juggling so much activity between family events and obligations, church services and work. The same with friends here, all so busy. The thing is, for many of us, our commitments are directly tied to community or family outcomes, so we can't afford to "burn out." We rely on one another, and so the cycle of stress continues. That is why I urge all of my family, friends, including new friends reading this blog, to please take a little time for your own creativity. It's amazing what your imagination produces, and I would love to see and hear what you create. Creativity reduces stress and you can surprise yourself with your own creation. You learn about yourself as you create, and I hope to learn more about all of you.
