Your life is your art. Creativity is a lifestyle.
Albert Einstein – “Imagination is more important than knowledge”
I love Albert, I love his quotes they really speck to me. Especially this one….
“Imagination is intelligence have fun”
So you can imagine how excited I was to bump into him at Madame Tussauds;
Anyway to today’s blog post…
What is creative living?
I think there is a bit confusion around the subject of creative living, most people think that to live a creative life they must be an artist or an author, a singer or a dancer, or an actor or actress…when in fact…EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE is already living a creative life. Each and every one of us are born as creative beings. The only difference is that some create consciously and some create unconsciously.
The unconscious creators are;
The mothers cooking dinner for their toddlers, searching through the alphabet chips to find only the letters that spell out their little darling’s name…
The newlywed couple that carefully picks out the colours, curtains and furniture for their new home.
It’s the ritual you have when running a bath, it’s the routine you have when you get dressed, it’s the process you go through when writing your ‘to do…’ list.
Another misconception I think people have when they hear ‘creative living’ is that to live one they have to quit their jobs and go live their life like a hippie to follow their dreams.
It certainly doesn’t mean that…
(unless that’s your thing, it’s mine…am working on it)
It just means that you make room in your life for things that make you happy.
It’s about being mindful and living with purpose…on purpose.
It’s listening to and trusting your own wisdom and intuition.
It is inner peace, happiness and fulfilment.
It is to live in alignment with your core values.
It is looking at the world of being full of possibilities.
It is believing that you are here in this world to make a difference.
It is learning from and embracing life transitions.
It is having the courage to live your life exactly the way you want to live it.
It is following your inspiration – instead of following the crowd.
It’s a quest for Personal & Spiritual Development.
It is knowing that you consciously create your own life in each moment.
And it is having a more laid-back attitude to living.
Creative living is lots of things…but it is also a very individual thing! One person’s creative life will be completely different to the next person’s creative life.
I think it is all about being conscious of what you think and what you do… to become conscious, the first step is to learn to understand yourself and your own values. Finding out what you actually LOVE and what you most dislike… because how can you consciously live a creative life…if you don’t know what you truly enjoy.
To live YOUR kind of creative life, you have to start by getting to know yourself. Search deep within yourself to find what truly pushes your buttons. Find your passions in life. Start your journey of Self-Discovery today and start being the STAR of your own life. I won’t go into detail here because I have already wrote about it here…there is also a free download to 40 thought provoking journal prompt questions that will help you explore and understand yourself on a deeper level.
Thing’s to remember when Consciously living a creative life….
Believe in yourself – don’t wait for permission to live your life.
Continue to learn and grow – its OK to feel lost. Creativity is an irrational process. Just go with it.
Just have fun
