29 Jan One More Way To Create Your Best Life
Last week I wrote about how having more fun in your life is one key to creating your best life. Another important factor when creating a life you truly love is by being able to express yourself creatively. I recently co-hosted a workshop and the majority of attendees came to the workshop because they wanted more creativity in their life. I was shocked by this answer. I expected them to say they wanted a better job or a new relationship or more money in their bank accounts. This got me thinking about my own life. I’ve never considered myself a creative person. I am not an artist, a painter or an author of a book. Here’s something to consider – we all are creative beings on this planet in part to express our creativity. Being creative is one of the keys to living a more vibrant life. So how do you do that? Here’s a few tips to get you started on your path to being a creative person.
Reframe your mindset to see tasks you may not normally see as creative as being that way. For example, I used to get easily frustrated with making flyers for my business. I would usually end up using screaming and yellowing inappropriate words at my computer screen. Now I grab some tea and enjoy the creative process of sitting at my desk and playing around with the colors and verbiage of my flyer.
Go back to being a kid. Remember the things you did when you were bored in your room at home. I used to have so much fun rearranging my room around creating different room designs.
And lastly, Tip #3
Take a class you’ve been wanting to learn that’s just for fun. If you’ve been wanting to learn how to walk on a tight rope, go find a class or instructor that can teach you to do that. I have a friend who wanted to explore her creativity through her voice so she started taking singing lessons! I love that about life. We get to choose what we want to explore more and how we want to spend our precious time.
