D A I L Y * W I L D day 14
~ it’s beginning to look alot like…………deadlines!
18 days until the release of D A I L Y * W I L D, my first ever zine! i am full of excitement, but also really starting to feel the *push*. so much to do and of course, i scheduled this project during a time of moving into a new home, and in between “regular income stream” jobs. not to mention the onset of the winter weather season! there are times when i think, “how the heck am i going to pull this off?” the daily demands of adult responsibilities taking away precious time my inner-child wants to spend just creating. but, the reality is… despite everything else going on, i want to create this little piece of magic more than anything!
my man read a quote to me once, and forgive me, for i can’t remember who said it, but it goes something like this:
how you spend your everyday is how you spend your life!
is it important that i honor my own inner-child everyday and live according to these desires.truly all we have is today. today is our life.and if we are lucky enough to live many days in a row, then we have lived a life of conscious desire. for me, honoring my children’s desires also prods me to take action on practicing what i preach! like yesterday when my seven-year-old kept begging that i help her make a magic potion! like a good mom, i multi-tasked, doing dishes, cooking dinner and setting up a potion making station in the middle of the kitchen floor. no task left unattended. i quickly discovered that the ‘mom’ duties ran on atuo-pilot while creating a ‘magic potion’ to turn ourselves into magic wolves warranted full-conscious awareness with child like enthusiasm!
i needed to remember that the grown up stuff has to be done, and it will be done, but not at the expense of experiencing life everyday with uninhibited enthusiasm and ambition. and not at the expense of releasing my creative child..T H E Z I N E
JUST FOR FUN~
