the Urge.

the Urge.

 

 

Blue Powder pigmentDo you have a creative urge? Are you listening to it? Will you answer it with action? Do you know that if you don’t listen and answer it with some action that it will never go away?

Do you put off creative artistic projects because you feel there are more important things to do?

How do you feel when you do something creative and artistic?

When you ignore your creative urges, i.e. planting a new garden, painting your front door, bringing beauty to your world, are you rewarded with a feeling of satisfaction or a feeling of disappointment and self-criticism?

It’s a “niggling”.  A “niggling” that runs under everything else, an unease that can become the norm.  When you get a creative urge it is your expression wanting to come through and just the same way you would speak or write, you may be inspired to paint your front door door or plant those blooms, make some soup or find some way to make your life more beautiful. Every little bit helps. And when you are around more beauty – you are happier. And when you are happier, so is your family, and on and on.

Getting over the hump and into action is a daily practice. And for me, some days call for a long nap. I know what it takes to listen to the urge, respond and most importantly, share what you’ve created with your community. This last part expands the beauty into exponential rewards.

Wake up and Hear the Call. Dig in the dirt or take a simple step to bring more beauty into your life and let me know how that works for you.

I will be back next week with my results of expansion. Please share yours here or on my facebook page.

  1. “There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost”
