Observing and creativity go hand in hand. There is such importance in slowing down and being observant. This week Shaunna and Marian talk about how much harder this is due to all the digital distractions we have at our fingertips. They still contend there is power in sitting on a bench to enjoy being outside, or to watch a couple walk through a park. To simply be. We all need to just be able to sit, to breathe deeply, to be truly present. To revel in Intentional quiet.
The gift of bring present brings is experiencing life, which breathes just that into your creative work: life. It gives us the chance to reside in a place of flow versus tension. This practice will make a huge difference in the way we view the world and THAT makes a huge difference in the way we create art.
Great episode, thanks! Please do talk next week about preparing for “creative wounding” before it happens. We all have stories about “so and so said this to me when I was a kid.” But once you get over that and you’re actually doing the creative work — I think fear of the criticism that will inevitably come is enough to stop people in their tracks at the thought of sharing. How can we build up resiliency as adults?
Hey Rebecca! Hopefully, we covered this in how we feel like you can overcome it. Thanks so much for listening!!
Great content! Super high-quality! Keep it up! 🙂
