A little quote :
" There is a direct relationship between self nurturing and our capacity for a sustained creative flow. We don't want to work spasmodically and sporadically. We want to work consistently and creatively. This means we must treat ourselves as finely tuned mechanisms. We must learn what makes us thrive and give ourselves a diet of those nutrients."
pg. 97, Letters to a Young Artist, Julia Cameron
I think this is true for everyone- not just 'artists'- how much better would our lives be if we could identify and feed ourselves only what we needed in order to thrive?
