Dear Flowering Heart,
How do you keep going creatively when “real life” seems to get in the way?
We all have creative desires. Creativity is in all of life- in the babies and the flower gardens, in the kitchens and our dreams. If you close your eyes and think of where your heart sings- it is where your creativity is too.
Being in nature nourishes our creative spirits. Giving to others in fresh ways is creative.
Our real lives call for so many things- and there doesn’t seem to be “time to be creative.” There isn’t unless you create some. The good news is, it doesn’t take long or much energy at all to create time for creativity. It only takes a perspective shift. Here’s quick guide:
- Allow that you and your life are already creative, then give yourself permission to explore this.
- Choose a creative desire- what would you enjoy spending more time doing if you had all the time in the world?
- Now, envision yourself doing that. This includes doing “nothing.”
Your creativity will grow with this type of thinking. Your real life will become and feel more and more creative to you. There will be a certain glow in your face. People will wonder if you’re newly in love.
And you are- with your very own creative life.
