Today's prompt is from Jamie and Shannon Ridler to everyone participating in their Kicking It Old Skool blogathon. I hope you will join us. It really is fun.
I love to learn about people and where they live and work so when I saw Jamie and Shannon's prompt today I was really excited. Welcome to where I spend part of my day. This is a fairly large room and I am sure that there is someone who could see a better way to arrange where I blog and paint but for now this arrangement works for me. All I have to do is swing my chair around and I can easily and swiftly change hats.
I have always loved to write and to paint. Blogging has given me a way to combine both and it has been fun. I usually blog three times a week unless I am taking part in something like Kickin It Old Skool. On Sunday I like to start the week with an inspirational quote. Lately I have added a question to think about as I go through the week. Questions help us to open doors that may be closed. Opening those doors can lead to lots of new creative opportunities - something that I find exciting.
On Wednesday I like to share a Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching tool or strategy. I have found them so helpful and important to know so I want to share them with everyone. For example, when you find yourself stuck and don't know what to do next : Stop, Take a deep breath, and ask yourself, "What has worked in the past?" Sometimes the answer will come right away. Sometimes you will need to give yourself time to think about the question. We almost always know what works for us but it is also very normal to forget.
Friday I like to share something I have painted during the week. I usually link with Paint Party Friday a site that has introduced me to talented artists from all over the world. It has been wonderful learning from them and being part of such a supportive group. I also share what I am grateful for that week. This seems like a personal thing to do and at first I really felt awkward about sharing these thoughts with the world but now I believe it is a gentle way to encourage others to do the same. The more grateful I am for the things that take place each day the more I seem to have to be grateful about. We all go through twists and turns in life but recognizing the positive makes each day a little more special.
It's been fun sharing where I work each day. I hope that you will visit often. I love to meet new people and learn what they are doing. And of course if you are ever interested in what a creativity coach does, don't hesitate to ask.
When you share your dreams and talent with the world, magic happens! Let the magic begin today. Ginny
