In a month filled with thankfulness and giving, I give you a simple way to notice and be grateful for the creativity in your life.
Keep a creativity gratitude journal.
I asked recently on Google+ about how people handle the sometimes complicated balancing act of both parenting and developing your own creativity. One dad had an elegant idea:
“Have you tried looking back at the end of each day and record the creative moments, and being thankful for them? It can help to be more conscious of the moments, so that you can enjoy them more fully as they come up day by day.”
“I actually do a little gratitude journal entry on Evernote every day before bed. Leaves me with a good taste of the day, and lots of little nuggets for future creative endeavors whether visual or written.”
Don’t complicate it!Just commit to writing it down for a week, a month- let’s do this each day and see how we feel.
This is a tool that can help us realize we can bring creativity to everyday tasks, and by noticing our own creativity we naturally help it flourish.
Alright- if you’re thinking, “Hmm, this is a good idea.” Go now, choose what to use for your Creativity Gratitude Journal! Put it where you’ll use it!
Maybe get all crazy and DOODLE a bit on the first page just to get going…;)
