Two weeks ago I celebrated my 44th birthday. You know how your birthday and the new year both make you feel like making fresh starts? Or is that just me? Well, imagine if those two occasions were stacked on top of each other how deeply, some might say manically, you would feel that. That's me right now. I don't have a huge list of resolutions but a single idea that is shaping my days. Do something creative every day.
You combine that idea with the deep urge to organize that always comes this time of year and you might end up with an organized stationary box that you get really excited to look at.
Or a new planner with a pretty accent that makes you smile multiple times every day. For me the idea isn't to create masterpieces every day, it's to bring loveliness to all the corners of my life. It doesn't matter how big or small. It doesn't matter if it's perfect. It only matters that I'm following my heart and feeding my soul. I find that the more creative I am, the more inspired I become.
Right now my head is so full of ideas and inspiration I can hardly shut it down in the evening to relax. At night, I close my eyes and see a parade of colors, patterns and shapes. Can this be normal? Probably not your average person's idea of normal. Is it normal to wake up in the morning with a burning need to make a loopy flower for your deer head? Well, we don't really need to answer that.
