I think it is so interesting when people's eyes literally glaze over when I start talking about 'creativity'. As if it doesn't apply to them, but some magic formula will fix their life and all the troubles they are experiencing. Everyone has their own way and method that is for sure, but denying your own creativity and creative potential is way worse than any troubles you are currently experiencing.
In my experience, it is only prolonging the suffering when you could be manifesting a whole new outlet and possibly even a new profession for yourself. But many don't want to even dip their toes into that uncertain water. How deep is it? What if they drown? What if NOTHING happens.
Well, what if you never begin and always stay on the outside looking-in at your life. Hmm... I'd rather take the uncertain creative route. It has its' challenges because it is aligned to who we are in every way. So much of us gets invested into our creativity. And that's why it is so rewarding.
How to start? Start with anything. You can't calculate and plan it. You just have to flow. I love to capture content on the go or when cub isn't around, so that I can just free-flow. I love to free-write and then refine my poems later in stolen time. I love to grab an opportunity to learn some new sound and video production techniques. I love to jump on my DJ decks and just practice mixing. I ADORE blogging and absolutely podcasting.
There doesn't have to be strategy or an outcome involved when it comes to creating. In fact it is the only time you get to release all that, and just BE. DM me to talk about my CREATIVITY COACHING and if you'd like to have a conversation about your creative journey.
