The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Create For a Moment

Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.
— Rumi, The Essential Rumi

Adding paint to a pencil drawing, the laptop plug lays to the right.  22 July 2015.

When I woke this morning I wondered what I would write about for The Feel Good Idea Of The Day.  I knew what was inspiring to me...What I REALLY wanted was to go to my room and paint for a moment...to make contact with this part of myself that is effortless and creative...that feel quite like magic.  I imagined holding the paintbrush in my hand and moving it over the page, the colors taking on a life anew.  

I made the space to begin doing this.  I started with a pencil drawing I had in my sketch book and added the color to it.  Can you make time for yourself to do this (or some other type of craft that you enjoy?)

It is a practice to make space for myself to explore my creativity.  I don't do it everyday in this manner.  But I do creative things each day.  I allowed myself this moment, primarily so I could share it with all of you.  What would feel good to you, if you could create anything you'd like?  I invite you to explore this.  Weave your experiences by commenting below.  You are part of The Feel Good Crew, you are SO welcome here.

To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.
