Do you have a list of creative projects or do you wonder where to start?
Some people know exactly what they want to create. They have lists, cupboards filled with supplies, and a pile of projects started but never finished. Some people long for a more creative life and wonder where to begin, claiming they are not creative.
We are all creative.
“The best way out is always through.” Robert Frost
We make the road by walking. Getting started can be as easy as going for a walk every day. To create is to bring something into existence. To create requires action. We begin by beginning. Creatives at all levels from beginner to professional need a boost sometimes. We are human and sometimes we get lost.
Think of a Creativity Coach as a Guide
The Sherpa mountain climbers are an Indigenous group in Nepal and the Himalayas that are known for guiding travellers over complex terrain and conditions in the mountains. A creativity coach can help you prepare, teach how to adjust to change, ensure a steady pace and an even load, and help you to reach your dreams.
It Can Start Today
“One must dare to be happy." Gertrude Stein
What did you love to do when you were 5 years old? What did play look like for you? Go for a walk or take a nap with the intention of reconnecting to your inner child.
Do something. Celebrate the action not the outcome. Let the project become whatever it wants to become. Play. Connect to curiosity and adventure.
