Re-vivifying my Creative Spirit

Updated: Jan 14

I’m one of those people who has an endless list of all the things I want to do. There’s so much to learn, so much to create, so much to experience! But, inevitably, many of the things I’d like to try, fall off the list because there’s just too much to do. So I decided to try a different tactic.

I’ve been curious about working with my cycle for sometime now. With the onset of Perimenopause, I don’t have the limitless energy and vitality I used to have. Sure, I have it at times during my cycle, but at other times I feel like I’m 1000 years old and can barely be bothered getting dressed, let alone tackling my long to-do list!

Over the Christmas break, I spent time reading, researching and listening to podcasts and, this month, I’m going to have a go at structuring around the 4 phases of my cycle.

I’m currently in the release phase (from the start of my period for about a week) which is a good time to rest, tend to some self-care and dream and plan for the rest of this upcoming cycle.

Some of the projects on my list for the rise and plateau phases of this cycle(when I’ll have more energy and focus) include:

🌟 Getting creative with some slow stitching and botanical dyeing - hence the photo.

🌟 Starting an exciting design project with a dear friend @0_l_i_v_i_a_.jpg I can’t wait to do this with you!

🌟 Completing my new website and launching it to the world - thank you @daily.alchemy for your incredible website build and support.

🌟 Getting back on track with my daily movement and meditation practice, which fell away somewhat in the latter part of 2023 as I struggled through a very stressful and busy time.

I know there will be plenty of life and family admin that will crop up during the month too, so I’ve narrowed down my goals to these 4. They feel nourishing for my intellectual, creative, physical and relational wellness. And that’s all part of living a balanced, Brighter Life!

Let me know if you’re keen to know more and I’ll hook you up with some awesome podcasts and Insta profiles to check out ♥️
