If I were to count the number of things my oldest creates in a day, I think I’d lose count by mid-day. She whips things up without a second thought. Newspapers, picture frames, paintings, letters, and whatever else her brain and body desire.
I’m actually not sure how much of her creating is done with the brain. At least it’s not the same brain that I use to create.
The brain I use to create drags ideas along, questioning whether the thing I want to do is the “right” thing – as if there is a limit to my creations. My brain wants me to think three steps ahead to understand the impact and to make sure I have the aptitude to do the thing before actually doing it.
Now that I think about it – she doesn’t create with the brain but with her body and her heart.
What if we did the same? What’s calling to be brought to life right now? And can you do it with your heart instead of your brain?
A daily practice challenges the person who creates on “inspiration.” We have to mother everyday, and ultimately, it is the daily grind that gives us perspective, clarity and the “high’s” of motherhood. I am exploring if the same happens when I write everyday on the topics that normally light me up – motherhood, self-development, healing and creating.
