Creativity. That sacred and vulnerable space found within the unknown. It’s a powerful feeling to let go and create. It’s expansive, magnificent, uplifting, and many times scary. Creating is when we allow our minds to rest and our hearts to lead. It is curiosity leaping and it washes our soul with joy. To create is to invite a fresh and meaningful perspective into our lives.
Seven years ago, creative was not a word I used to describe myself. I was a color in the lines kinda gal, a rule follower and a list maker. My creativity had boundaries and my designs were structured. There was no flow, no groove, no heartfelt journey. My mind led me, my heart was left out of the equation. Today, creative would be my number one descriptors of my soul. Creating fuels me and it allows me to let go. It’s a release and a pause. The destination becomes less important and the moment is paused. Time is suspended. I groove. I float. I flow.
It’s crucial to let your heart take the reins when creating. It’s imperative to let go and be curious about thinking outside of the box. It’s a magnificent feeling, full and whole, and to allow yourself to flow is a real treat for the soul. That unknown place of discovery within your spirit. It’s truly magnificent.
On April 27th I will be leading a Zen Bird Workshop. Join me for an evening of Creating with Confidence. Find that space within you to open up and feel your way through the design world. We will be crafting Creative Journals, a dream board of creativity, and filling the pages with ideas for the rest of the year. Let’s get crafty, ZBirdies. Sign up here to reserve your space.
