Every so often you need to have a check in place to see if you are creatively satisfied. For example, I am working hard on Greens & Blues Co., preparing to launch my first paid course in May, and while it is creative work and I am thoroughly enjoying it, it is very different from other creative acts that I take a lot of pleasure in.
After putting in many hours creating my Design Your Creative Path course, I was feeling a little creatively depleted. I needed something to fill me back up.
So, I set aside some time to make my kids Easter bags. It was a simple craft, but it gave me an excuse to go to JoAnn Fabrics, which just walking into that store always gets my creative juices flowing.
I got so much satisfaction from taking the hour it took me to make the bags and just sit and make something (plus they turned out super cute if I do say so myself). I need to have a reminder or some kind of check in place to remind myself to take time for creative activities that are just for me.
Anyway, my point is, make sure you are taking time for exercising your creativity in ways you love. What have you actually done lately? Go out and do something today. Make Something. Create something. Go for a walk. Exercise. Today, do something that leaves you creatively satisfied.
I have one favor. Can you take two minutes or less and complete this quiz? You’ll be my best friend forever. Thanks!
