“Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not. ” – Pablo Picasso
Creativity takes courage, it takes us out of our comfort zone and into the unknown. It takes us away from what we have always done and into a new energy and vibration.
When we express our creativity, we celebrate the life force within us. And when we do that, we discover our own innate power to heal. – Joy Aimee
I have realised that as I get older and when I continue to do the same things in life or react to others and stress in the same way, I can lose my sense of adventure and vitality for life.
When we forget how to get that inspiration and passion back, we begin to feel stuck and unable to move through a situation or a block in our relationships.
Change is difficult and takes great effort and yet, sometimes all we we need is a shift in our perception of the situation and start being creative to try a new approach or a new way of thinking and this can move us forward.
Often we just need someone outside of our circle to inspire us and guide us to try a new idea. Perhaps it is just doing something spontaneous or learning something new like, art or a language or a musical instrument, or training for a special event, or learning a new sport.
When we create new ideas to inspire our life again, we bring a new energy to ourselves and to those around us. Below are some ways we can start.
Write a list of things you love
Sit down and make a list of everything that you love. Include all the things, people and concepts you are attracted to, passionate about and interested in. Don’t limit yourself.
Take opposite action
Very often, what we most feel like doing is not what helps us the most. When we are feeling low in energy or feel like sitting at home, that is when we need to be creative and try experimenting with something opposite and new. Sometimes doing something we have never done before, will excite and ignite us and shift our mood.
Being uninspired and feeling detached has a physical component and effect, and this can lead us to being sedentary or feeling slow. To take us out of this physical and mental state, we need to be more physical and do activities like dancing, running, or hiking – or yoga. Anything that will move and stretch our body will help our thinking become more flexible and open.
Do something fun and unusual
Even when you are not feeling it, there’s nothing like doing something spontaneous when you’re uninspired. Try something you have never tried before, like a trapeze class, a photo safari or go to a lecture on a topic you know little about yet. Grab your partner, or friend as well and just do something in the moment!
