Creativity - a Gift




January 15th Entry from Julia Cameron's Artist's Way - Every Day

In a sense, our creativity is none of our business. It is a given, not something to be aspired to.  It is not an invention of our ego. It is, instead, a natural function of our soul. We are intended to breathe and to live. We are intended ot listen and create. We do not need special pens. We do not need special rooms or even special times. What we do need is the intention to allow creativity to create through us. When we open ourselves to something, or someone greater than ourselves working through us, we paradoxically open ourselves to our own greatest selves.


Here's to you...and the beautiful gift of creativity....

xxo, Kim
