Inside you there’s an artist you don’t know about

We are all artists creating our life. What are you intentionally manifesting today? Click through for other quick inspiration.

We are all artists in our own way, creating everyday.  Whether we realize it or not, each word, action + thought is moving us closer or farther away from what we want.

Inside you there really is an artist.

And I know this idea can be scary because it makes us realize that we are the master of our universe–taking responsibility for things that happen in life can be a tough pill to swallow!  But if we start looking at it like an amazing gift, to be able to navigate our own destiny, it becomes pretty exciting.

What are you creating in your life today?

5 Easy Ways To Get Inspired {I use all of these!}

get inspired organization techniques

When I started painting, I realized that inspiration doesn’t have to be such an elusive thing.  A lot of times I would ‘wait’ for inspiration; I felt like there had to be the moment that inspiration strikes in order to create; but now I know that’s not true.

Inspiration doesn’t have to be something I chase down.  There are so many ways to create an environment where I can pull that creativity from the deep part of me that is looking to be expressed.  I just have to remember to actually use these handy tricks!

Here are some ways I get inspired, and maybe you can use these tips, too:

1. Make a gratitude list.

The best way I get my wheels turning in the right direction is to look at what is working.  I try to think about what I’m totally psyched about, what is really getting me excited these days + I write those things down feverishly in a simple list.  And these things can change from day to day so I put the list in a place I see a lot (usually on my to-do for the day) to remind me that I have a lot to be happy about.  So simple, right?  It really works.

2. Create a vision board or an inspiration board on Pinterest.

I find that the visual aspect of things has such a big impact on my mood, especially when I want to create new art.  Vision boards are something I’ve always used–collaging pictures and words onto poster board, beckoning those things into my reality (law of attraction anyone?)  They’re easy to make and a great reminder to display in any creative space.  Recently, I have found Pinterest to be such a cool alternative–it’s like an electronic vision board that I can pin things to from around the web.  Here’s my inspiration board if you want to follow along with me on my pinning journey.

3. Watch a Ted Talk on a favorite topic.  

Ted talks are a total mini pick me up.  They’re all 20 minutes or less, so it’s just enough to get the message across without getting boring. #winning  Here are a few good ones that I like:

4. Read a snippet of a great book

I love books I can just pick up and read a little of without diving into the entire thing.  Some good ones I use are:

5. Listen to some great tunes.  

I firmly believe in having a few theme songs–one that gets me going in the morning, one that pumps me up when we need a boost + one that calms me down when I need a hug.  I have too many to list, but here are a few:

Such simple ideas, right?  But using these tools each time I need a little inspiration has made all of the difference.  I hope they help you, too–happy creating!

5 Posts That Will Change Your Perspective

From-the-vault

Here are a few oldies but goodies that can help you change your perspective.  If there’s one thing I know, it’s that it only take a moment to see things differently.  Hopefully these words from out of the vault will help you do just that:

♥ Don’t Ask For Permission To Take Care Of Yourself.

I admit it, I am a reformed rule follower.  When I was in kindergarten, I learned that following the rules doesn’t always make sense.

♥ Don’t Be Seduced By The Struggle. {Follow The Ease.}

One of the most seductive lies we’re told is: you have to struggle to get what you want.  But  if we are constantly reinforcing thoughts about struggle and hardship, how can anything else show up?

♥ Getting Clear On the WHY of Your Work Will Lead You To The WHAT.

You can be in the ideal work scenario and still feel unsettled, confused or dissatisfied.  Figuring out the why of your work will catapult you to a different level of happiness and fulfillment.

♥ Want to get inspired? {Feel your way through it.}

Inspiration is the fuel that moves you forward.  Figuring out your inspirational muse can be tricky at times, but it’s so important to your ultimate happiness.

♥ 5 Simple Steps to get what you want from life. {Lunch is optional}

You are the artist of your own life!  You can intentionally construct where you want to go rather than just let life happen to you.  All you need is a vision and a desire to follow through on it.

You Will Never Be Able To Escape From Your Heart.

escape-from-your-heart

Happy Monday, friends!
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about those heart yearnings we all have–and how it might seem easy to ignore them for a little while.  But eventually, that whisper becomes a scream and you can’t deny it any more.  You will never be able to escape from your heart.

I felt this way about my painting–not that I had to become this amazing painter or artist, but I knew I needed to paint + create; I needed to get out on canvas what my heart wanted to say.

Self-expression is so important, both for our own sanity but also because the world needs to hear our deepest calling.

What does your heart want to say today?
