Happy New Year!
I love fresh beginnings, don’t you?
One of the best things about starting anew is the invitation for creativity. So, what are some of the ways you enjoy expressing your own personal creativeness?
What do you do that, when you’re in the thick of it, fills you with excitement and joy?
Do you sing or play music, cook up wonderful meals, paint or draw, garden, dance or play outside?
Any activity can be creative (even dusting the leaves on your plants can create happiness for you, and for them), so it’s really about finding the bits of life that feel the most juicy, and diving in with your whole heart.
It could be rolling out your yoga mat and dancing with your breath, creating peace and harmony, mind, body, and spirit.
For me, one of the most enjoyable things is writing. In fact, I just finished writing a novel. It feels AMAZING to be creative in this way.
So today’s exercise is to think of something that brings you joy, and do it!
Maybe you can start right now, or maybe you can write down when you are going to engage in this creative endeavor, but give yourself that gift.
You deserve it!
