If you really think about creating, you might see that we all create our lives. We create what we are going to eat, what we are going to do, our experiences and much more. In fact, we are all master creators just living our day to day lives!
Once we realize that we have tremendous creative abilities inside of each and every one of us, we can really use these abilities with a more focused vision for what we want in life. I am currently enrolled in a course called “creating the impossible”. In this course, we are supposed to pick a project that we feel has less than a 5% chance of happening, and through the course, we work towards creating this “impossible” goal.
Our first exercise with this course was to create something new every day- whether it was a meal, an art project, or anything at all. The only rule was that it did not exist when we woke up that day and by the end of the day it existed. This was so powerful because it showed me how much we all create in our day to day lives and how good we already are at creating.
It has completely changed the way I think about creativity. I have come to realize the power in just showing up and doing the work and seeing what may come of it. When we greet our goals and projects, and open ourselves up to our creative potential and let that lead the way, so many opportunities show up in our lives that we never could have dreamt up on our own.
My wish for you is that you can recognize this in yourself. And if you can’t, just start creating small things and experiences every day. You might be surprised at what starts showing up in your life.
Have a beautiful week!
