Creativity takes shape in so many forms, its facets seem endless from painting to photography, cooking to jewellery design, floristry to music, hairdressing to writing, and architecture to landscaping. Creativity is something, which enriches the soul and brings purpose and meaning to our lives.
Often our relationship with creativity can be arduous and frustrating to say the very least, and our goal, more often than not is to bring a greater sense of harmony and balance into that relationship.
The dichotomy of our relationship with creativity is that when we get it, what we call ‘right’, it generally makes us feel amazing, uplifted and joyful… but in all those in between moments, we can often experience feelings of dread, failure and even disdain.
Many of you may have seen it, but I desperately wanted to share with those of you who haven’t, this incredible address on creativity by Elizabeth Gilbert. Creatively, this 19minute clip was life changing for me, and I encourage you, whatever your craft may be, to do the same.
