Today is day #2 of a NEW mini-series focusing on the question, “How do I live a creative life?” I’m excited to share with you unique perspectives from a variety of my blogger friends all week. Each of these ladies has a defined style, career focus + family life, and creativity plays a key role in their everyday. Yesterday Kyla Roma shared her perspective with us, be sure and check it out if you haven’t yet!
This week we’re focusing on outside perspectives with the goal that YOU leave here feeling inspired, and to encourage you to take a fresh new look at the creative life you already live ♥. Next week we’ll dig a little deeper, so I hope you’ll be back for week #2 :)
Let’s get started, shall we?
This week the question is, “How do you live a creative life?”
Hi friends, it’s Heather from Just Lovely Things! For as long as I’ve known I have tried to make do with what I have, yet always dream to obtain more from it. When I was a kid and my hard working single mom couldn’t get me the barbie dream house, that didn’t stop me from playing with my barbies. I have a distinct memory of flipping two cups upside down, placing a ruler on top and letting my barbies play at the ‘breakfast bar’.
It’s no different now since obviously I’m accustomed to having some sort of creativity always running through me since as long as I can remember. Sure I want a lot out of life, but that doesn’t mean I want a lot of things. I try to surround myself with items that mean something, usually items that I had some part in making or finding, refinishing or reworking. Everything I do and everything I see has potential, and although it can be great it means that a creative mind sometimes never rests.
I try to live my life in a way that I surround myself with people that do the things that make them happy too.
Creativity can be the way you take photos, plant your garden, or even the things you cook. As you can see living a creative life means all of your life is that way. It really can be quite fun! I think one of the best parts of having a life like this is supporting and surrounding yourself with others that love it as much as you do.
I think we all have creativity in us, its just not all of us seem to use it. If you notice the beautiful things around you and aren’t completely oblivious to how lucky we are to be able to create then that’s living good.
LET’S DISCUSS: Do you have people around you that live their life doing what makes them happy? Do *you* live your life this way? xo
