Freebie Friday: Your Big Why

Freebie square 5-12

It’s Freebie Friday!

Today we have an exercise to share with you, called your “Big Why.” Sometimes it’s good to check in with your self and remember all the reasons why you love what you do. Especially with a creative practice, you can easily find yourself in a downward spiral if things aren’t going the way you hoped they would. We created this exercise to give you something to look at when you are feeling a little less hopeful about your practice than usual. Reignite the spark in what you do!
