DAILY DOSE—REVIEW & REVISE

DAILY DOSE—REVIEW & REVISE

 TAKE AN HONEST LOOK (and get real!)   Creating from what you have includes the accumulated results of your daily, monthly, yearly actions, habits, thoughts and beliefs.  Be honest with yourself and take a long hard look at the past year. What worked? What didn’t? Where did you succeed? Where did you fail? What got done? What didn’t? Are you healthier as the year closes than when it began? Are you more financially secure? Less? Did you create what you set out to create? Did you simply talk about it or did you take action? Review what...

Daily Dose—BEGIN!

Posted by on Nov 30, 2016 in Inspiration, Motivation, The Daily Dose, THINK BLOG | 0 comments

    What is in you? Bring it forth! Everyone has something inside them they’re dreaming to create—a song, a dance, a cake, an idea, a company, a school, a book, a building, a dream, a film, a story, a savings, a family, an education, an adventure, a home.  What creation is inside of you?  And what would happen if you simply started working on it?  Quietly, consistently, gently giving it attention, energy and action?  It doesn’t have to be some big drama or proclamation.  It can simply be an internal shift, a clear decision, a...

A Battered Dream

A Battered Dream

My head has been in dreams since yesterday afternoon when I went to the post office and there was a lone dream in the box.  Lined, frayed and battered, it looked like it had made a long, hard journey.  Which, considering its softness, I suspect involved going through the wash! It’s appearance, more than the actual scrawled dream on the front, deeply impacted me.  It’s our dreams, those precious, secret wishes, longings, hopes, aspirations, that take the brunt of our abuse from insecurity, loss, rejection, fear, disappointment,...

Daily Dose—TRY SOMETHING NEW

Stuck? Shake things up!   Routines can be wonderful in life. Brushing your teeth.  Working out. Meditation.   Schedules.  But what happens when you are stuck in your creative work?  Feeling uninspired?  Bored?  Blank?  Shake it up!  Change how you approach it, how you do it, what you do during the time you have scheduled for it!  Instead of writing in the exact same spot, go to the library or a coffee shop or the beach.  Change the view!  Instead of creating in the exact same way, do something different. Instead of typing on your...

  Procrastinating?   STOP! …just go and do it already.     Instead of fretting over how long you’ve been procrastinating on something and thus procrastinating even longer, just stop and go do it already!  Whatever the hell it is—the dishes, your homework, the laundry, the phone call, the email, signing up for the class, breaking up with him, the first work out, buying the domain name—just start doing it!  It’ll be done before you know it.  And who knows what doing it will do to your mood, your energy, your outlook?...

Daily Dose—DO SOMETHING!

Posted by on Mar 21, 2016 in Motivation, The Daily Dose, THINK BLOG | 0 comments

  WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO REACH YOUR GOALS?   Do something!   Everyone has a goal in their mind, probably right this second—big, small, meaningful, shallow.  It could be as simple as, “don’t forget to floss.”  It could be as colossal as, “change the world.”  It could be as existential as, “beat cancer.”  It could be as superficial as, “try Botox.”  (Don’t judge it.  If it matters to you, that’s all that matters!)  Whatever your goal is, what are you actually doing—physically, mentally, emotionally, tangibly—to...
