You’ve Got This!

Hi There!

Are you waiting for someone else to say it’s OK to create, to find the little bits of creative joy in your day?

Permission – Who Needs It?

So many creative people seem to be holding their breath – waiting for permission to create, to enjoy their creativity and to express their true selves. Have you stopped breathing?

Waiting for approval to create – I call it the “Permission Problem” – wears a lot of faces but usually comes down some form of putting other people’s ideas ahead of your own

Sometimes, it’s called busy, as in, “I’ve got so much to do I simply can’t find time to be creative.” This is avoiding someone else’s judgement on how you spend your time. It’s the idea that “they” think you should be doing something particular with your life and creating joy isn’t one of the approved items.

Other times it looks like humility – “I don’t draw/paint/sew/whatever well enough to create.” That’s perfectionism and it’s also searching for permission to create, this time it’s only when it can be perfect according to some external standard. Except that perfect never comes and neither does the creative joy in your life.

You don’t need permission to create, to make, to live – that’s yours! It’s inside you already, waiting, so go ahead and take a deep breath and make something!
