My Artist Way

OK I'm back with a more up beat mood! Last Friday I was at the book store tiring to find some new reads! I'm lost without a book on my night stand. I flipped through tons of books. There was this one about lifting the vile on God and looking at the reasons why people believe in him. It was interesting but way too much scientific jargon. I love a good mystery or romance but nothing tickled my fancy so I wondered over to the self help books. Which I use go to first to see if there is any new books on co-dependence. I found this wonderful book called the Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. Its about finding a spiritual path to higher creativity. I think this is what I have been needing to deal with my spiritually lows. So far I love all the exercises in it! The morning pages are my favorite. I love how it says to treat your artist like a child and have fun with it. I take my artist too seriously. Like its this old retired man that only likes to smoke pipes and read old books! My child artist wants to dance, make a mess and sing out loud. I took a bubble bath last night and played with my kids bath toys while I bathed. It was so much fun! I need more fun in my life and if anything that is what this book has taught me so far.

If anyone has read this book then please let me know what you thought of it. I leave you with this for this week let your child artist play and have fun! Do something you would never do in your adult life ever! Like skip in the park or build a sandcastle on the beach or play in the bath like a kid! But you have to do it by yourself only you and your child artist no one else. Try it believe me you will what to make this a weekly thing!

Thanks for checking me out!




  1. There are some websites/blogs dedicated to The Artist's Way. If I can find them, I'll send them to you!

  2. I have heard about this book a few times lately, I think it's my 'nudge' to read it. Next time I'm at the bookstore, it's coming home with me! Thanks for sharing it with us.
