“Set time for it in your agenda, or just do it”, was my first reaction and I continued: “I usually allow myself time for that in week-ends: it’s relaxing for me, combined with outdoor activity.”
Then someone answered the same question: “You have to allow it first!”
“Before allowing”, I replied, “it’s accepting that creative side of us that wants to be expressed … it won’t go away! It even makes us happy when we allow it. It took me years to understand that. And what I find now? It has a ripple effect: more I allow it, more positive effect has on others (beside the boomerang effect mentioned above). And to make peace with my mind (focused on my coaching business), I bring now my art into my business… because both have the same positive impact, and they can compliment very well. 🙂 So, I’m more willing now to give my creative side the time it needs.”
What do you think about this topic? How do you make time for creativity?
