Ok – give me some creative license to claim February as the month I guide you to fall back in love with your creativity and watch the changes and magic happen out of left field.
Let me count the ways you can spark the romantic in you from creative renewal.
Promise you will play with me?
Alright. Let’s do some storytelling. How many stories have you heard where someone reconnected with their abandoned artist after years only to find it enhanced ALL parts of their life; not just their creativity?
The woman who stopped ballet dance at a young age due to fear of not measuring up. Twenty-five years later, inspired by a craving for change, was urged by her close friends to sign up for a ballet adult class to just “feel” the movement and reconnect with her artistry. Hesitant she would not stick with it – she courageously signed up only to find she not only felt like a new woman – but her neglected artist within was re-lit with a joy she had not felt in decades.
She risked delight.
The beauty of her renewal – she began repairing her relationships personally and professionally. Her marketing company began to shift and her revenues increased. She redecorated her cozy home in a different color palette and bought flowers each week to add beauty to her dining room. She and her husband re-lit their romance after years of decline.
The list goes on. Did she become a professional dancer? Of course not. But renewing her creativity allowed her to repair the parts of her life that were dimmed by life’s challenges and disappointments.
It allowed her to think differently in how she approached problem solving. It allowed her to feel reconnected to her heart where ideas, inspiration and a zest for life reside.
