Two dirty creative secrets revealed


Secret one: in order to receive the New you have to let go of the Old.

The last 3 days I've been detoxing my studio - meaning I let go of old junk that tied me to the things I don't want anymore.

I even found a small note from 2005 send to the Universe that said I wanted Huge Office Space for my communication business... yeah... That must be very confusing for the Universe :-)

I got rid of letters from people I feel not aligned with anymore. That's just a fancy way of saying: "Hooray I'm so happy we are not connected anymore."

Recognize the feeling?  What are you ready to let go go off and what do you want to receive instead?

Secret Two: Perfectionism is boring.

It's not something to feel proud of, even worse it can ruin your happiness and creativity.

You see, we use perfectionism as an excuse to NOT do something.

"I'm a real perfectionist, I can't do something just like that... By the way there are a couple of spelling mistakes in your email"

If there 's anything - really anything - you love to do, but feel you have to wait Go and DO it. Really? Can't do it. Well, pick your favorite excuse:

"No time, too old, too young, no money, need to know more, have to think things over, I have to learn more first, I have to get more advise first, this is not a good time, I'm not feeling well, my family needs me, I start when I finished cleaning out the garage, I need to make more money first.
I have to earn that, I will not make any money, I need a website first, I need to think it over first. Sorry did I use that excuse already, Sorry but than I Really need to think things over first and research it too ...."

Don't wait.

All these excuses are bullshit - yes, they are -  grab a piece of paper and write that poem. Write that first line of your book.

Don't wait for divine inspiration.

Don't wait for that perfect moment in a Galaxy Far Far Away...  

Want to make art?

I'm 100% certain you've got an old magazine and a pair of scissors.

Cut out any form you like, glue it on a scrap of paper, circle it with your pen, doodle hearts on it.... there it is: Art!
