5 Things to Remember as a Creative

IMG_4932

Just a thought…

  1. Design a lifestyle that allows you time to create. Develop habits in your life that benefit your creative side that can sometimes be freeing from the everyday mundane and hustle.
  2. Having an organized space can give you a clutter free mind, ready to create.
  3. Remember that it’s okay if you can’t juggle all of the plates in your life all of the time. Just try and allow yourself some leniency to mess up.
  4. Be consistent in allowing yourself some freedom. And if the creative life is your career… schedule, schedule, schedule the time and the space and stick to it!
  5. Sometimes you should unplug and go back to the basics of art… fun, free, creative messiness. Try crafting, painting, collage making, building… etc. The point is to use your hands and free your mind from such a rigid format of life and work. Put those kids to bed (for those WAHM), blast the music, pour yourself a glass of (insert beverage of choice here) and do it to it. But above all else… have FUN.

Happy Weekend

Change your perspective, change your life.  Perspective can be defined as a particular attitude toward something; a point of view.  So how do you choose to see things everyday?  Are you painting your life with the colors that have been handed to you or are you creating your own rainbow and beauty beyond what is superficial?  Have hope and move beyond your struggles; always looking for the reason to be thankful.  Shift things in your life and take ownership to what is happening around you.  Open your eyes to opportunities and realize that changing your outlook is a part of growing past difficulties in life.

Open your eyes and see God’s wonder in the everyday things.

Hope you enjoy your weekend.  Thanks for reading.  Cheers… Kat

Be Kind

The pineapple symbolizes hospitality, friendship, generosity and graciousness.

We could all use a little more kindness in our lives. The world could use a little more kindness. Our hearts could use a little more kindness.

I have hope for this world and I have love for my fellow human and I have faith for our hearts to soften in this time of turmoil.

Dear world, above all else, be kind.

Thankful

Today has been and inspirational sort of day.  I took family photos and as I reflect on the day I cannot help but say “wow!” I am blessed beyond belief with a beautiful, healthy and loving family and that is the best I can ask for. I am so thankful to my God who has given me such a fulfilled life and all the opportunities that have presented themselves lately. I am honestly overwhelmed. What brings joy to your heart and thankfulness to your soul?

Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.

Gobble Gobble!
