Who am I – these are such powerful and intimate words !
To be yourself, in a world that tries, night and day, to make you just like everybody else – is to fight the greatest battle there ever is to fight and never stop fighting. E E Cummings
I encourage you to stop for a moment and remember a time when you felt fully alive and excited !
This can be on many different levels, there are the life stopping moments and then the day to day moments….let’s focus on the day to day for starters.
For me, walking down the paint aisle in the hardware store makes me excited, why you may ask ? Well one of my core passions is creativity, so when I am creative I am being ME, I get in the zone, my energy levels increase and I am motivated.
Now flip this around, when I am doing something that is not my passion – let’s say cooking – I am not motivated nor do I enjoy the process. As cooking is basically a necessity I suck it up and cook, however I would not choose to cook for pleasure – safe to say you won’t be seeing me on MasterChef or MKR.
So think about it, what makes your heart sing ?
Start incorporating these into your every day life – at least weekly ! While I don’t paint every week, I express my creativity through my website, watching renovation shows and writing my blog.
It is time to Reignite YOU !
I will leave you with another of my favorite quotes…Be yourself – everyone else is already taken. Oscar Wilde.
