The Power of Creation

Are you being creative?
Creativity is not limited to artists, writers and musicians. Anyone embracing growth, expression and knowledge is creating. When you challenge yourself, you grow and create confidence. If you lose 10 pounds you’ve created confidence because you look better, feel better and actualized something. If you conquered your fear of heights you can create more experiences. You create order, form and structure when you balance your checkbook and live within your means. You create sustenance when you make a home made meal, even if it’s just for yourself - an expression of self love. Give life to plants or vegetables in a garden, nurture their growth as you nurture yours. 
You create connection when you live with integrity and vulnerability. You don’t have to be gullible, just lead with your heart more. How does it feel when you take your dog for a walk or teach him how to sit? It feels good! You are outside, hopefully with a view and a little sunshine. You are getting a little exercise and so is your four legged buddy and, you’re creating connection. How does it feel when you discipline your child in a way that makes them feel empowered or sparks their imagination? It feels great because you are living with integrity and creating connection. Don’t let the little stuff get in your way, don’t ask how! Just do what feels good, right. The how will figure itself out. And don’t ask why, just do it! 
At the moment I am making no where near the money I used to. But, I am creating; following my heart knowing that the money will come. I am surfing the waves of fear and exhilaration while creating a new life. A successful component to inspiration for creativity is living in the moment. To fully live in the moment you have to trust yourself. You trust yourself by creating small goals and accomplishing them and by listening to your heart. What is your heart telling you?
