Stuck in a rut?
Feel like you’re creative juices have dried up?
Let’s face it. This happens to ALL of us especially if you have a deadline or are starting a fresh, new project.
But here’s the great news. It’s actually pretty easy to fan that flame.
veryone wants to be happier, don’t we?
Yet connecting to that deep feeling of contentment, that absolute joy, that pure bliss often feels elusive.
We know it’s there. We see people who clearly have it. But we don’t.
The truth is, there are no exceptions.
Joy is here for you too.
And if you want to experience it right now, try one or all of these:
Over the past few weeks I’ve been trying to discern between what is feedback and what is criticism.
As a person committed to self growth, I care deeply about how I show up in the world, and with others. I strive to be in alignment with truth as much as I can be. So when I got some feedback recently, I found myself responding to it as if it were criticism.
At first, I rationalized that it was just my hormones. I was being over emotional.
Then I began to wonder what was “true” for me, and what was projection.
I went around and around with this.
Still, I persevered, wanting to know, wanting to identify my triggers.
If you’re a searcher like me then perhaps you’ve spent years trying to discover your “purpose.” Your raison d'être, the reason you were put on this planet.
I’ve spent years, maybe even decades trying to unlock that mystery! Heck, I even designed a 12-week course to help other people find their purpose!
And then I finally stopped.
I stopped thinking (obsessing really) about it. I stopped trying to “figure it out.”
Let me clarify.
I didn’t stop because I thought I’d failed at finding it, no.
Over the weekend, I went to a basket weaving workshop. It’s my new favorite thing to do. I love writing, and making jewelry, but there’s something so primal about weaving.
I’d actually forgotten about the workshop because when I first signed up in January, I was put on the waitlist. Consequently, it never went on my calendar. So, when I got a call on Monday that I could go, well, I almost didn’t. I’d filled my week with other things! Did I really want to reschedule my appointments and drive to Portland, get a hotel room, blah, blah, blah?
Yes, I really did.
The night before I left, I checked the website again. There was a supplies cost of $5 but what tools? Then I saw a tiny hyperlink that said, SUPPLY LIST. Not only were there tools but a long list of other things to bring! It was 10pm!
Can you feel it?
That need to be creative?
The planets are shifting and realigning, old patterns are falling away, and we, ALL OF US, are being called to open more to our intuition and inner guidance. Being called to show up in a new way.
So what is it that is yearning to be birthed within you?
Ever since I decided to follow my joy, I've been exploring creativity in a new way. Really diving into it.
And part of what I've realized is that SO many endeavors we undertake- starting a new business, coming up with a social media plan, making dinner - ALL of these are creative, right?
