We are all originals. Inside each and every one of us is treasure made of our unique experiences, desires and gifts. When we embrace our original selves and express who we truly are, magic happens. Creativity is in all of us. Maybe you write, paint or create music. Even if you have lost touch with your inner creative, you can rediscover it.
Creativity is not just craft although craft is wonderful. Creativity is a way of living.
Whatever you dream of making, doing or being, or however you dream of living, creativity can get you there. Your dreams deserve imagination, focus and time.
To reach your potential as an original, don’t be someone you think other people want you to be, or who you think you ought to be or who you wish you were.
Be proud to be you. Be proud of your ideas and what you make.
If the original you feels lost, try asking yourself…
- What do I do that I enjoy so much that I lose all sense of time when doing it?
- What did I really enjoy doing when I was young that I have lost touch with?
- What’s important to me – really?
- What gives me a sense of purpose?
- How do I dream of living – truly?
Open your journal and let your true self pour out. Consider how you can be more true to yourself at work, rest and play.
Allow yourself to dream. Draw pictures or search for photos that bring it to life. Consider the one step you can take today to move closer to it.
It’s rare that we can make our dreams come true right away. The best things are worth working for. They’re worth putting time and heart into. But, when we know what our dreams are, we are clear on what we want to welcome into our world. We can adjust our lives to invite in more of the things we want and do more of the things we desire.
However, don’t wait until you are ‘perfect’ or have realised your dreams to start living. Even if you have just 15 minutes spare a day, fill it with the things you love.
Live your #OriginalLife every day.View 2 Comments
