Recently I sent an email asking you what's going on in your life right now. I was kind of surprised (but not really) when many of you said you wanted to live a more creative life.
I've been thinking a lot lately about what it really takes to live a creative life, and wonder why it is such a common question. As human beings, we are inherently creative. Our souls desired this experience so much that we created (or co-created) a body to bring us into this physical reality! If that is not the ultimate creative act, then...well...
Anyway, as a writer, creativity is part of the job description but often times I feel my own creativity wane. It is maddening when this happens, especially because I see the root cause coming from a sense of shame that has been lingering around longer than anyone cares to admit. For many of us, it can be a struggle to maintain ingenuity when we have to split attentions between a monotonous day job and true passions.
I think this is the heart of what many of us deal with, so the real question is, "how can I infuse creativity into my everyday experience when life can seem so mundane." What I've discovered about desiring to live a creative lifestyle, you just have to choose it over and over again. If you want to write, then write! If you want to paint, then paint! If you want to dance....do it!
Whatever it is that sets your heart on fire --- choose that!
I talk about this in the video, but I'm curious to know what you think! If you have a story to share, please do so in the comments below.
