It’s time to start a new journey again. Since I am in a phase of experiments, trying to find the right art form for me, I am eager to commit to new practices.
What I am about to do now, is actually not new for me, but something I have tried to implement into my life for a long time.
I am speaking about the artist date.
Where does this come from?
The artist date is one of two regular habits that Julia Cameron recommends in her book The Artist’s Way. I like to think of this book as some sort of bible for creative people.
To become a more creative person you should do two practices:
- Write morning pages every day
- Go on an artist date every week
What is the artist date
The artist date is a date with your inner child. It is an invitation to play, quality time you spend with yourself and the possibility to try something new or an activity that you do way too rarely.
I don’t want to go into too much detail here. If you are hooked, go read the book: The Artist’s Way.
For me it has always been difficult to commit to the artist date on a regular basis. Let’s face it: Life gets around every time.
That’s why I have come up with a new idea.
The Artist Date Challenge
Every week on Sunday I will post an activity that will be my artist date in the upcoming week. I made a list of fun activities and I can’t wait to share them with you.
I hope some of you get inspired to join me on this journey. Whether you follow my artist date suggestion or make up your own different artist date is entirely up to you!
Just make sure to use the hashtag #artistdatechallenge and link me in your posts.
I will be very happy to see if this habit actually makes a difference and leads to a more fulfilled and more inspired life.
The first artist date idea I want to share with you:
Make a bucket list.
I am very excited to make one myself (themed for autumn) and I can’t wait to see your bucket lists!
Until then, stay inspired!
