An interesting friend.
You know how we all need interesting friend who can inspire us, instead of dragging us down?
“You can do it! You are doing it and you are improving. I’m proud of you!”
“You know this is what I do. This might be interesting to you.”
“Let’s talk about this concept that you are working on. I have a different approach…”
You want people who say this in your life.
What if I tell you that you need to give your creativity also a friend? A companion.
A companion that inspires your work.
Albert Einstein plays the piano and violin. He likes to sail, too.
Silvia Plath keeps bees.
Emily Dickinson likes to bake.
The companions they found for their own creativities relax them, diverse their attention when stress accumulates in their “serious work”, and inspire their creativities from another realm of consciousness and reality (because how mindful they have to be when they create. So are you.)
Find your creativity its own companion.
What you enjoy but in another field.
What gives you sparks of inspiration, pleasure, and relaxation or stimulation.
Your creativity will benefit from it. So will you.
