Make It A Masterpiece
How is your life like your favorite painting? How is it different?
I have been thinking a lot about the creative process lately. And how in the day-to-day rush to get things accomplished, we separate our creativity from the way we live our lives. Maybe that works if we are going for robot-like productivity. But it's terrible for our deepest, truest selves.
That's because we are all wired for creativity. And when we leave that out, we are leaving out a big part of who we are. We are leaving out the love.
What if, instead, we slowed down and treated our lives as though they were works of art that we could paint and repaint and create in our unique way?
What if this weren't just some provocative question but something you could actually do?
Picture this: Your mind is like a paintbrush, and creativity happens as you begin to think differently. This is what I do with my clients. I challenge them to live into new possibilities, paint their world with different brushes, and create their own masterpiece.
Don Miguel Ruiz, the author of The Four Agreements, says, "Find yourself and express yourself in your own particular way…. if you create your life with love, your dream becomes a masterpiece of art."
By the way, masterpiece as defined by you, not by comparison. Not by social media. But by you alone, and the fullest expression of who you are.
I was a highly creative child. I grew up with dreams of becoming an artist or an architect. Then some well-meaning adults steered me toward more practical and lucrative dreams. I don't regret my path, but I am ready to reclaim it. I'm here to live my life like art, and I want to take you with me. If what I'm saying speaks to you now, let's have a conversation. Stay Inspired.
