Get Creative And Start Living Your Dreams
“Being Creative is not a hobby it’s a way of life”
Do you feel like you are creative?
One of the worst things I hear from my clients and friends is that they are not “creative”.
So I know there are a lot lies that the Bible talks about but really this is a BIG ONE.
The Devil wants you to think that you are not creative.
He wants you to be kept in fear and not have any new ideas that will move you forward to the life you were meant to live.
YOU ARE CREATIVE!
You were created in God’s image so how can you not be creative?
When you look around at all of the beautiful creative things in your life.
Nature and all the homes and cars, stores, paintings, computer graphics.
All of that takes creativity.
YOU ARE CREATIVE!
The thing is when people say that they are not creative what they are really saying is they are fearful of doing it wrong. Or they are comparing themselves to others.
In this life, if you really want to live the life you were created for you have to push past the fear and the competitiveness.
You only have to worry about being creative.
There is no need to compare yourself because all of your art comes from your soul
YOU SOUL KNOWS THE WAY.
The Key to living your life you want is really learning to be creative every day.
Now this doesn’t mean that you have to take up painting or sculping which most of assisted art and
Being creative every day literally has millions upon millions of ways to be creative.
And yes before you start to doubt yourself yes you are good at being creative.
FIND WHAT YOU LOVE:
Before you start and run down to the local craft store sit down and think about what you really want to do. What are the passions that you already enjoy doing?
Take some time to look through Pinterest to spark some ideas.
Don’t just be a pinner but be a doer, even you fail the first time….
Learn what you need to do next time and then try again.
I love Pinterest.
I mean really you type in anything that you are looking for and boom something will pop up to lead you to the right place.
Now, this doesn’t mean you just go and copy someone and do what they did, put your own soul into whatever project that you are working on. Make it your own.
DO SOMETHING NEW:
So after you get in the groove of doing something that you know your good at now is the time to find something new you like.
Never stop learning or doing something new in your life.
You can go to a coffee shop.
Go to a new place to hike or bike.
(can you tell that I am from Seattle?)
You can start a bullet journal. I love those this allows me to get creative every day while helping me stay on track with what I need to do every day.
The learning process is a fun and exciting way to get to yourself better.
This keeps you moving forward toward your goals.
So one of the key things that you need to find your inspiration to be creative is to have a clear mind.
With a clear mind, you will be able to see more of what you need to do.
You can have a glass of wine if you need to. Or some other favorite drink. Like tea, something to help you relax and stress-free,
READ A BOOK:
Did you know that most adults in America haven’t read a book since college? I know that shocks me too. Reading a book is one of the most amazing things you can do to jump-start your imagination. When reading someone’s work sometimes helps to see that putting our ideas down for the world see is a great way to get over your fears, fear of competition or criticism. This is so important for our soul because fear, competition, and criticism are the 3 biggest lies that stop us from living the life we were created to live.
WHAT IT MEANS TO BE ARTIST:
No matter what you want out of life,
If you want to be a business owner, a baker, and MLMer, if you want to be a coach, if you want to be a writer or singer being an artist means…
It doesn’t mean that you are to create or be creative when the moon and the stars are aligned or you hear from God a message from a burning bush that He puts on your soul.
No, what it means to be creative every day is
It to SHOW UP
You must show up every day to create, unleash what is inside of you.
No matter what you are feeling.
No matter what you are doing.
Now you may sit in front of a blank page
A blank canvas
You may be standing in the craft store
Or scrolling through the pages on Pinterest …
It will feel awkward.
You may feel jerky and clumsy.
And start to say that you are not creative
That you hate doing this, that you are not in touch with your soul
But then when you feel like throwing in the towel you feel it…
You fingers will start to work with ease, the words will start to fall out faster and faster.
The ideas from Pinterest will start to jump out at you. You know what you need to do in order to created.
Your Art will start tumbling out from your soul. Like you DESIRE IT TO…
Because this is what you are meant to be doing every day
And that is the whole point.
The whole point that it is perfect for you.
You have no fear, no competition, no criticism because this is what your soul wants.
NO ADVANCE NOTICE NEEDED
Note… when you are being creative from the soul please don’t plan anything out in advance.
When I sit down to write it don’t plan it out. I start writing.
Yes, I do have an outline but I just let my soul piece it together.
Each of these things you will only receive and be covered in when you show up for them daily without expectation.
The ideas will be given to you.
There are days when you will not know what to do but when you start showing up every day.
When you cook something new, paint something new, go somewhere new
And You show up each and every day regardless of what is going on in your life because you know that if you don’t do this you are starving your soul.
When I first started writing I told myself that I would write for 2 hours a day.
I know at first this seemed like a hugely daunting task.
But starting in small chunks.
15-25 minutes at a time to make the 2 hours.
I started doing this day after day as my soul cried out for what needs to be done and you little by little the 2-hour daunting task didn’t seem that daunting anymore.
I showed up
I did it every day
If you remove all the expectation of what should be or what you need in order to do what you need to do, you could just DO the work every day and allow it to BE whatever it is.
No ‘this is good’ but “that’s not”
It is what is
It’s perfect because it comes from your soul
And my beautiful Queen …. If you desire to in some way to be KNOWN for what you do …. Simply I am going to tell you this…
Do ever think about what will happen at some point because you waited?
Or do you show up every day and be creative regardless of what is happening in your day?
I will tell you this…
You can do it now, just as you are.
Come as you are, the woman God created you to be
Your ART is enough now.
However, it comes out
Do this… every day
And one I promise you
You will look up and see that you have built your Kingdom
That is all I have done
And really that is all I need to do
Is to show up every day and show the world, my soul
Just show up and you can have the life you dream of
Remember You are the Daughter of the Most High GOD
