C R E A T I V I T Y // I never thought creativity would be a plump white haired woman with soda pop dripping down her chin. A week ago, I was in a coffee shop debating my exit plan for a creative project that I felt suffocated by. In the beginning it felt so sexy, attractive, and youthful. I would look at it and feel with every fiber of me that this was my passion, purpose, and life force all blended into one. Intense! Yet, 6-months later that red-hot intensity cooled off, the fun was dried up, and the sexiness started to age... And in the middle of me, deciding what I was going to do with this aged project, in walks this woman in her 70s with a cane and soda pop hobbling into the coffee shop. LOUD. VIBRANT. INTENSE. She ends up sitting at the table across from me, and starts flipping through a magazine (the ones by the door that nobody reads) I shrug it off and get drawn back to my list. Yet, here's where God and The Universe do something downright magical... 15 minutes later she tells me, "I love the speakers they have at the local universities, there's this one speaker Elizabeth Gilbert who seems real interesting." I look up, and before I can speak theres a magazine on my table opened up to this page (the one you see in this Instagram photo). And before I can advert my gaze, I land my eyes on this paragraph that says: "New ideas are always sexy and always beautiful. But here's what I know from years and years of experience: six months into working on a new idea, it's going to become a boring old hag. There's always a point in every creative project when it becomes a boring old hag. My advice? Don't just keep bouncing off into the new thing if you never finish anything; there's some real grace to be had in finishing something." - @elizabethgilbert7004 That message came at the perfect timing from the most unexpected of sources. It helped me not quit. And it was living proof of how abundant a universe we live in. If you want proof of #BigMagic here it is ❤️
Be patient, continue to persist and move in the direction of your dream. Many times a dream has a life of its own. It will take you on a journey to build your character, your confidence and your faith. Be patient! Patience does not mean being inactive. It means positive expectation and a knowing deep down in your heart that you will be alright. Believe that things are going to work out for you. Judge not according to appearances. Be patient ~ even if you do not have a dime in the bank, lost your job, or your money. Be patient. You have the power in you to pull this out. Don't judge yourself based on what you do not have. What you have is enough. Hold the vision. You have the power in you to resurrect your dreams and make them become a reality. Work on yourself. Believe in yourself and in a power greater than yourself. Be patient and keep moving forward. Things will work out for you. Remember...you can do it...I BELIEVE IN YOU! #Believeinyourself#Challenges#Changes#Goals#Motivation#Focus#AloeAbundance#Success#Dreams#Vision#Purpose#Mindset
What are your beliefs around "creativity"? Do you see yourself as a creative person? 👩🏻🎨 . You see I grew up believing creativity was a privileged trait a few were born or gifted with. 💭 . Grew up believing creativity was for writers, singers, poets, dancers, painters, musicians, marketers and so on. Whenever I would create something, I would just see it as a lucky moment. 🍀 . Truth is creativity is part of our human nature. We are all creative beings. 🦄 . Just go back to when you were a kid: the draws you made, the stories you created with your toys. 👦🏻 . And as a grown up, think about that time when you began mixing ingredients randomly and created an specialty, or came out with an "aha"'moment to solve a situation. 💡 . Isn't that creativity? ☀️ . Yet, by living in autopilot most pilot have somehow block it. 👣 . I'll also say it is like a muscle, the more you travel, explore, see, smell, taste, sense...the more you dare, the more you connect with your inner self...jthe more it unleashes. 🌎 . Have an amazing and creative weekend! 🦄
🔥TAG a friend who agrees! - You have two choices, continue to make excuses and forever be stuck in the situation or you can embrace the situation and adjust accordingly. - Choose wisely friends, don't sweat the small stuff.
"If not us, who? If not now, when?" - John F Kennedy ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I want to change the quote slightly to read: "If not YOU,who? If not NOW, when? If not NOW, why not?" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Simple, yet powerful questions to ask yourself as you prepare to start a new day, with new opportunities. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If not today, why not today? Is it not a perfect day to get started?

Menjadi relawan di Kelas Inspirasi itu ga mudah, mudah bagi mereka yg ga paham esensinya. Bagi mereka yang hanya terfokus pada bentuk nametag yg bagus, foto-foto, bentuk closing yg meriah, yg semata mata agar memiliki hasil jepretan yg colourful, upload ke sosmed, perbanyak selfie tapi LUPA utk diskusi,menyapa, berjejaring dan berkolaborasi dengan Bapak/Ibu Guru dan pihak sekolah. Heiiiii... Kelas Inspirasi bukan ajang PARTY, Kelas Inspirasi bukan ajang pamer seperti itu..🙏😌 jadi buat rekan-rekan yang ada niat seperti itu, plis ga usah daftar yaaa 🤦♀️😭. Nyesek diliat dan dirasakannya,kakk. 💔 Kita kan para profesional TERDIDIK, yg bertujuan utk memberi motivasi, membuka wawasan bahwa banyak ragam pilihan cita-cita serta membantu mewujudkan mimpi adik-adik di Negeri ini. Selain itu tidak hanya adik-adik tetapiiii keberadaan kita diharapkan menciptakan interaksi antara relawan dan warga sekolah, harapannya kehadiran kita bisa membuka ruang komunikasi,diskusi dan kolaborasi tentang kondisi sekolah tersebut. Dan kita bisa menjadi media dan jembatan penghubung aspirasi/pesan kesan yg ingin mereka sampaikan ke pihak dikti/pemda. Selain itu, Silaturahmi sesuai prinsip KI, bukti nyata yg mau kita bangun dengan pihak sekolah bisa melalui langkah langkah konkrit sehingga bisa tercipta kolaborasi yg LONG TERM, tidak berhenti hanya pada HARI INSPIRASI saja. Kurang lebih itu goals dan esensi Kelas Inspirasi yg BUKAN MENJADI AJANG PAMER DAN TREND semata 😍🙏🤘. Semoga pola pikir temen-temen yang masih KURANG TEPAT atau GESREK bisa diubah perlahan ya 😍😏🙏😎😎😎😎 Foto ini cukup menjelaskan langkah konkrit kelompok kami. Insha Allah bisa menjadi contoh teman teman yg mau Silaturahmi dgn pihak sekolah dan adik adik kita 😍🙏❤️ Terimakasih Salamketjup *buketuakelompok13,Sdnbabakan* #kelasinspirasibandung5#kelasinspirasi#kibdg5#kelompok13#SDNBabakanSari#KiaraCondong#Bandung#Backtoschool#Silaturahmi#Kolaborasi#Mindset#Polapikir#Opini#curhatanhati#relawanpendidikan#relawanpengajar#relawandokumentator#pedulipendidikan#semangatmenginspirasi
