Day 64 of the Artistic Spirit Pledge

111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression

Day 64: Marathon and Business/Personal prompt results

Day 55’s Creativity Prompt was as follows:

Step after step

Step after step

You just passed the halfway mark of the marathon for which you have trained for months. You are tired, thirsty, and your body hurts in ways you didn’t know it could.  What do you do next?

MARATHON

Fatigue overwhelmed every muscle, inching closer and closer to my resolve.

“Keep going,” I demanded. “Just focus on each step.”

The need to look behind was so powerful, but I instructed myself to stare straight ahead.

“Move forward, not back.”

It’d be so easy to rest – to succumb to the pain, doubt, and exhaustion.

“Isn’t that what you’ve done before? How’d that work out for you?”

One step…and another…moving with intention and determination. No good will come from giving up once again.

 

Day 61’s Creativity Prompt:

Is business personal?

Is business personal?

It’s not personal; it’s just business.

Do you agree or disagree with the above statement? How does it affect you on a creative level? Use your artistic skills (painting, writing, baking, sewing, etc.) to best represent the above.

Is Business Personal?

Protected by bubble wrap

You make business decisions

When “we’re letting you go” is driven by disregard

One more POP of a bubble weakens your shield

 

With your heart on your sleeve

You show that you care

Dedication, passion, and love of what you do

Doesn’t equate to job security

 

Business strive to survive in a rollercoaster economy

While we thrive to succeed both professionally and personally.

 

**I am an Artistic Spirit! For most of my life I’ve used the creative arts as a source of spiritual exploration and healing, even though I didn’t always do so consciously. Sometimes I was the instrument creating the art and other times I was on the receiving end. The connection between art and spirituality is so significant in my life that it’s infused into everything I do. I love music, theatre, television drama series (daytime and primetime), and creative writing and find fulfillment in artistic expression of various sorts: singing, acting, and jewelry design. Throughout the next 48 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
