Forget about your 9a-5p (or your 6p-3a), the unfinished housework, the laundry. Let’s pretend you and I are sitting down for a glass of cabernet, something fancy and delicious, and you’re about to tell me what your thing is, what makes you happy….. besides wine.
I was talking with someone a couple of months ago, and she said she didn’t know what her thing was. She had a job, a beautiful family, friends, everything, but she felt like something was missing. She wanted something in her life,something she felt passionate about, but she didn’t know what. She also didn’t know where to start, to find that thing that she could say was hers.
The only way to find your thing, is to try a lot of different things.
The only way to see if you like something is to do it. So, to start, let’s pick something. Which things on the list below spark your curiosity. If you had extra time, which one would you pick right away? Don’t think too much about it. Trust your first instinct.
Read the prompts below and write down the ones that seem interesting to you. If you think of something and it’s not on the list, write it down right away.
WEEKLY CREATIVITY EXPERIMENT
Look at the ones you picked and pick one to do this week. You have 7 days to complete that thing. I’m telling you, you have to. Schedule it in. Block out 10 minutes, sometimes that is all the time we have, to start. Once you start, let yourself play and see what happens. The only thing that matters is you try and most importantly, you have fun.
