This Week I've Been...



Hey everyone! Happy Friday, how has your week been? This is not the post I had planned for today, but things came up, and life got in the way and instead that post will have to wait for another day.

So instead of using a busy life as an excuse to not post, I thought I'd use it as post material. Albeit a short and sweet one, here is a sneak peak at what life has looked like for me this week, what I've been doing, what I've been loving, and what I've been thinking about.

Be Embarrassingly Honest



H A P P Y  M O N D A Y ! 

I was going to start this post with an apology about writing so much lately around creativity and my process etc. but then I realised that would be stupid, because this blog is called A Cup Of Creative, and also because this post is all about being unashamedly honest.

2017 has got off to an amazing start for me freelance and creativity wise, and now I'm arriving at that sweet spot called 'hindsight' I can really appreciate it all. But actually when I've been stuck in the middle of it, it hasn't always felt that amazing. It's been pretty stressful and really really tiring actually and there was more than one occasion where I thought to myself 'why am I doing this?'

I already have a full tme job, it's in the arts, I can pay my bills. Why am I taking on extra work, and hours and stress? Because yes the extra money is nice, but that has never been what drives me And then I remember that this is what I wanted. To be paid for my writing an creativity.


Create Your Own Get Your Sh*T Together Weekend Retreat




Happy Friday everyone! How are you? How has your week bin? Have you enjoyed that touch of spring that's been teasing us all week? Why did that sound weirdly sexual? Anyway moving on...

Today I wanted to share with you my tips for creating a 'Get Your Sh*t Together Weekend Retreat.' I try not to cuss on my blog but nothing else sounded quite as catchy, and lets face it, getting your sh*t together isn't always pretty!

I had a weekend like this a few weeks ago and I honestly can not over stress just how well this sorted me out for everything I have had on this last month (and still do). Because sometimes what we really need is to not run forward at a hundred miles per hour, but take some time and space to really focus in on all the things we have going on. I went into this weekend, thinking that I'd accomplish all the things on my to do list, but in the end it was much more about working out why these things were on my list (what purpose were they serving) and how would I approach them (so that they would best serve that purpose). I often find that the tasks on my to do list aren't actually that difficult, yet I still find myself feeling too overwhelmed to actually get on with them.

Basically the idea of this weekend is to focus on your building blocks, so that come Monday morning you have a solid foundation and are ready to tackle EVERYTHING.

Now the following is an outline of what worked for me in my specific situation, and you might find you need to substitute certain things in or out, much like I probably will the next time I plan one of these weekends for myself. But I think this is a pretty good template to work from...
