“You’re only broke when you’re blocked” Julia Cameron

This little gem sparked all kinds of thoughts today.   It’s from the last lecture for the week, and was at the very end of her lecture on creating space for creativity.

I know you’re wondering where this is going, as this a space for health. Well, think about this for a moment, what is Creativity to you?? After today’s lectures on this subject I’m tending to believe it has everything to do with health and wellness. Let me explain then YOU decide.

When you think about the word or action Creativity what comes to mind? Art, writing, building something. Creating something big, complex or totally original? All these things are true and more.

Creating is bigger than art, or dancing, at its core is the ability to create ANYTHING! I think of my own husband when I think about creativity. He’s extremely creative, to the point of being one of the most creative people I know.  From his hobbies of building beautiful models of planes and boats from a box of wood, to building an actual space to create in, our “hobby room/art studio”. He’s able to see the model or room in his mind’s eye, then able to build it.

Thought: Creativity in its self is a form of self-expression. When you are creating something, anything from a drawing, writing a note to a friend, a new recipe, a new comedy routine,  to even a new way of working out, it’s all about what you are seeing in your mind and expressing it out to the world. Once you’ve completed the project or object don’t you feel more at ease, relaxed?

I’m enjoying my art classes Tuesday mornings. We’ve done 3 projects and all have been fun and challenging at the same time. Through not only the fun of learning my creative side and being able to learn new ways of creating art/crafts, I’m also filling a social need. The inner action with these ladies is as rewarding as the finished projects. I’ve found over the years for me, what I used to call crafting has really been a time of creativity, one that feeds my soul. It can be quiet time as I color in a book or sitting down to weave or knit, to my work as a massage therapist. I create a space for clients and give them space to heal.

My point is this, I want you all to take a look at your creative side, what does it looks like after reading this blog.  Creativity plays a significant role on your health and well-being, research shows us that creative people are happier, more open-minded, confident and more than likely able to be authentic.  Because they are expressing themselves to the world and to those around them.

Take a walk on the wild side and try something new, learn to cook healthy meals, learn proper body mechanics for working out, or take an art class like me and explore YOUR creativity.

Discovery is everything…. Don’t be blocked, be OPEN
