Happy Mother’s Day!

I recently did an interview for The Mother Artist Project. The last question was:

“What advice can you offer other mother artists about pursuing their passions regardless of their situation?”

I said: “Just do a little bit every day. Or a little bit three times a week. Just writing in a journal or making a promise to yourself to write one chapter of your book each week (a rough draft) or one stanza of a song each day. Whatever it is that you love to do, even if you don’t meet your deadline, you will feel so much happier for having shown up to do this work. It’s a way of showing up for yourself and it’s a way of knowing yourself better. Just like we work on our relationships with our children, significant other and friends, we need to work on our relationship with ourselves as well. It’s the most important relationship of all and all of our others depend on it.”
