An Unexpected Way to Create Calm in the Midst of Chaos - Let's Lasso the Moon
Tiffany Lozano, of Wild Child Travels, posts on Let's Lasso the Moon to talk about the struggles of finding time for creative expression when you have children. She has a solution that works for her—but I'm not going to give it away because she writes about it so thoughtfully.
"I have to confess however, on days where I haven’t accomplished something for myself, I sometimes find it difficult to respond compassionately to anyone. It’s like the frustration (at myself, at a difficult situation, at everything!) bubble up in my body like a pressure cooker, and it just needs somewhere to go.
"Rationally, I can process that raising small humans is important work. But logic doesn’t speak the same language as repressed emotion and the feeling like I’ve accomplished nothing in a day, in a week, in a month. Parenting is often invisible and absorbed into the abyss of hectic schedules, and it most often isn’t financially compensated."
So many of us can relate. How do you find the balance? What do you do to feed your inner artist?
