Must-Reads for Creatives 1.15.16

This week’s Must-Reads for Creatives are for the tender-hearted! They’re about the challenges in “adulting,” and the ways to clear self-doubt and self-blame. Most all, they’re about holding love, loss, and nostalgia within our creative hands, in that mindful moment before our thoughts are shaped into actions.

Must-Reads for Creatives 1.15.16 - For the Tender-hearted! -

What are you up to this weekend? After a tender-hearted week, I’m ready for a nourishing weekend. Art has lost many great figures this week: David Bowie, actor Alan Rickman, and poet C.D. Wright. As a Michigander, my heart continues to go out to the victims of the Flint water crisis. In my own life, my birthday plans went out the window, while my poor husband coped with his back going out. Most of all, my grandma is certain she’s dying soon, and she’s in my thoughts. In the coming days, I look forward to family time, finishing Cheryl Strayed’s Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar, writing, and meditating. I wish you a nourishing weekend!

  1. This list is awesome, just read “How to Stop the Doubting Yourself/Quitting/Looking for a Magic Solution Cycle—Today” article & I’m totally glad I did. A little reassurance can go a long way. Thanks for this post!

  2. This list is great. The list I really liked is the one where the photographer composes old photos to great a fictional landscape. I think this is so creative and unique.

  3. Hi Julie, This week’s round-up is as wonderful as the others. I particularly love the UpWorthy post about giving 100 homeless people disposable cameras … Wow! What beautiful pictures and a great thing they’re doing. Thanks so much for sharing!
