Over the last 15 years I've started and stopped various attempts at blogging and vlogging about Creativity. I totally embrace perfection in IMperfection! My day job is as an Interior Designer but I'm a lifelong Creative, and that manifests in my life in 100's of ways.
After speaking about Creativity for 15 years with thousands of other creatives, I finally decided to start the journey of writing a book. Stay tuned!
How did I start?
15 years ago, I was burnt out! But I love Interior Design, I invested time and money and education, I was not about to give up or switch careers, again! I'd already switched careers from the corporate world (Microsoft) after being irreparably burnt out. I had to take a hard look at myself. I was old enough to see my patterns and realize I was the common denominator. How do I reinvent myself, recover, refocus, revive and reconnect with a career and gift that I adore?
I'm split pretty evenly between left and right brain and my analytical side LOVES a deep dive into research! I gobbled up books and articles from all over. As I started learning and recovering, I would mention it to other creatives in my life and inevitably they would respond by saying, ME TOO!! The organization I'm part of, NKBA, developed a platform for members to submit topics for presentations at a national level. I decided to toss my hat in the ring. I figured if it failed, I still had my day job.
They loved it!
Funny thing is that my father was a speaker, teacher, writer and creative. I never thought of myself doing any of those things, yet here I am. What I've found is that it truly is a calling. When I step out of the way (ego) and follow the calling I become a conduit or vessel for a message of inspiration to reach those it's intended for. I've never experienced anything quite like it, true bliss, when you are in the flow of creativity and specially when it is out of a love of inspiring others. Inspiring them to grow and move beyond their own limitations brings me such incredible joy!
