YOU ARE CREATIVE BY NATURE!
Take the next step in bringing the practice of an Artsy Life into your day without having to find more time or energy.
In fact, creating your Inspiration Board will boost your energy levels and open you to all the possibilities that are waiting for you.
You may not realize how much you suppress every day. In our busy, stressful lives we push away our natural creative urges for our responsible “grown up” behaviour. We believe that taking time for ourselves is selfish and that playing (being creative) is something we’ll do later - if there’s time.
Human beings are creative by nature and what we truly need in our daily lives is our own personal EXPRESSION!
Do you know what the opposite of expression is? DE-PRESSION.
Expressing your creative self by living an EXTRAordinary life - an Artsy Life - leads to alignment with your deepest needs. Right now you may feel down, you might get sick a lot, have low energy or feel stuck in your life.
I didn't realize how much I was suppressing my creativity until I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 - and I'm an artist!
It was a life altering moment when I realized that my Artsy Life - being aligned with my creative self - was the cure for my illness.
For me, a huge part of this healing that was so simple, was creating a unique kind of vision board and it's amazing how taking this small step immediately makes you feel happier and starts you on a path towards what brings you joy.
Creating this Inspiration Board prompts you to visually capture what truly inspires you. I know you’ll have fun making it and once you’re finished, I want you to hang it somewhere that you can see it every day!
It’s been proven that what we think about and, in this case what we look at, is what we move towards in our life.
Of course, there's more to it than that… we need to take action as well, but more about that another time.
Practicing an Artsy Life through this simple step of making your Inspiration Board will rekindle your childlike wonder.
Choose to live your days in a way that feels more playful. It doesn’t take any more time or energy to choose differently but that playful feeling will actually give you more energy!
And, although it may seem counterintuitive, you’ll actually have more time when you start expressing your creative self because you’ll start choosing what aligns with you and not what doesn’t.
Here's to nurturing your Artsy Life!
