Whether you are living a creative life or creating the life you want to live being open to new experiences will enhance not only what you do but how you feel. It's easy to become comfortable with what you are doing but exciting to try new things.
When I mentioned in yoga that open was the word I was focusing on this week my very supportive instructor used it over and over again as we went through our poses. It always feels wonderful to open my arms and my heart to the world not only in yoga but in every part of my life.
For many of us our daily work does not always allow for openness. There are rules and protocols we are expected to follow. But in our creative lives or in the lives we create we can venture out and try new things. It can be the colors we use in our paintings, the food we prepare and eat or the places we visit. It can be the new and interesting things we learn about to inspire our creativity or the people we talk to that have differing opinions.
How open are you to new ideas? When was the last time you tried something new just for the fun of it? Being open and curious enhances our creativity. Is there something you have always wanted to do? Is there something you are curious about? Maybe this is the week to take that very first step and to open yourself up to new ideas and opportunities. It doesn't have to be a big step. Something as simple as asking, "What if....?" and then waiting for the answer can open up a whole new world. What if you opened yourself up to something new this week, what do you think would happen?
When you share your dreams and your talent with the world, magic happens. Let the magic begin!
