Guest Post: Defining Ritual

When did you last take a moment for yourself & your creativity?

Sarah has found that as a creative entrepreneur she asks herself this at least weekly.

"Whether you work for yourself, for someone else or are just trying to find time to explore your creative side it is such a gratifying and fulfilling experience to allow creativity into your life. But how do you find that time when your busy life takes hold?

Like anything else, it has to become part of your daily or weekly routine. I have read many books, followed many blogs and asked many other artists this same question about finding the time and everyone has mentioned this idea of ritual. If you have a consistent exercise program, religious practice or the like you will find that it is much like those practices and can become an integral part of them as well.

Ritual is, as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary, “a series of actions or type of behaviour regularly and invariably followed by someone”

Sounds easy enough, right? Not so easy if you cannot define a time in your day to create. However, with a little guidance, you can start NOW on a small creative journey of your own."
