Creativity is a form of self-care and is powerful in so many ways. It can restore, heal, and align us. And it is a part of who you are.
Now you may think that this is not for you because you’re not a ‘creative’ person. But neuroscience says that the creative process is the process of coming up with an idea and evaluating it— whether or not you want to do something about that idea. So that means, everyone is inherently creative. And that the question we should ask ourselves is, “what do you do with that creativity?” (Check out: becoming a vision-driven mom.)
What’s stopping you?
For most of us, the main thing that holds us back from creating is perfectionism. We often think that something should be perfect first before putting it out into the world. But creativity is a fascinating process. It starts with mess. No matter what you do, and no matter how instantly good you are at it.
We often worried about what it’s going to look like so we find it difficult to start. But what you can do, is allow the mess to happen before you can do the refinement. So let your creativity flow!
Besides, creativity is being open to new & exciting ideas, and then being able to connect them together in a way that is authentic to you (because not being able to create something authentic for you is draining.) Creativity is allowing the ideas to marinate in you. So let go of the outcome, and practice being!
