I facilitate some workshops that include people who are desperately looking for ways to balance their work and their life. Sometimes they are looking for a magic wand, and that's not available. There are ways to find this balance. There are things that each of us can do to keep our focus. One essential ingredient is to keep in touch with our creative center.
Our creative center is that part of us that simply knows when we need to move from the ordinary and find creative ways to move forward. Our creative center stores up our creative experiences and makes them available when they are needed (and, they are needed often!)
Our creative center is that place where we can balance our flexibility with our urgency in order to see more possibilities. Anxiety, worry, and tension are often generated by the failure to see more possibilities. But we do have the tools to overcome that - the creativity that we develop can supply the focus and energy we need to overcome the stress we feel.
Find your creative center and the rest of you s much easier to balance.
The more creative we are, the easier it is to find that center.
Draw. Paint. Sing. Dance. Doodle. Write. Appreciate. Share. Dream.
The creative possibilities are endless -- and all available to you.
What's your next creative thing?
