Important Things I’ve Learned About Planning vs. Taking Action

In life, we all have a grand idea on how things could, would and should be. We set our sights on what we want, and we write out or verbalize all of the plans we have to reach or obtain said goals.

6 Ways I Continue to Unlock My Full Creative Potential

What we learn, what we do, what we say is not by choice but always by chance. It is fate. It is destiny. It is creativity, the lifeline of the advancement of so many of the things we know and love today. I had a friend ask me, “how do you go to work, be creative every day, and still find the time to come home and do the same?” I pondered on the question for a while, and then it came to me, I don’t find the time, the time finds me. My creative inspiration lives within me daily. I may not always be inspired to create. Sometimes I create crappy shit, but it has always been there and always will be.

As the currents flow, I’ve learned to flow with them gracefully.

Once upon a time the average work environment was very impersonal and lacked connotation. Now, all over the world, the idea of what a professional work environment should be has evolved — coupled with the way that people work within these environments. Organizations realized that designing a space that is conducive to its employee’s well-being, creativity as well as their potential, is of high importance.

Course Correcting to More Intetional Ways of Living and Being

Friday, I sat in a meeting with a coworker. She was telling me how she was invited somewhere but didn’t really want to go. I asked her why would she go? Why waste time, money and energy on an experience you’re going to regret later? There’s this thing about living intentionally. Something that I honor, value and commit to daily. If I do not feel called to do it, I don’t. If I do not feel called to spend it, I won’t. If I feel called to disconnect my energy from a specific person, place or thing, I will.

A Letter of Truth

This past full moon was a pivotal one for me. I found myself in the space of not wanting any contact with anything that wasn’t in direct connection to my personal life. I was ready to unplug and retreat for a few days. Before the full moon, I had been feeling this heavily, but I ignored it as much as could until I couldn’t anymore.
