My official Week 6 check-in will be postponed until next week. It’s not because I took another Bye Week; it’s because I need more time with the Week 6 theme – Abundance (read: money).
I admit I missed the morning pages a couple of times this week simply by accident. The whole family was home due to the holidays, everyone was off-schedule we lacked any kind of routine, so a couple of mornings I got up and started going about the day, not realizing until later that I hadn’t done the pages. Neither did I take an Artist Date since I had next to no time alone.
Most importantly, however, I did not do any of the exercises set for Week 6, nor did I keep the theme in my consciousness throughout the week as I have with the previous weeks. All of this has left me disconnected from the program, and I don’t want to charge forward into the next “lesson” without feeling like I’ve integrated this one.
Money is a huge issue for everyone, but especially, Cameron maintains, for artists. For many, it seems anathema to earn a living or (God forbid) become wealthy doing something that you love. Cameron claims it is not only possible but probable. Obviously, that is a thought I want and need to spend more time with.
So stay tuned for the real check-in next week! 🙂Categories: Creativity, The Artist's Way · Tags: Abundance, Creativity, Julia Cameron, Julie Hedlund, Money, The Artist's Way, Writer
