I'm listening...

BE CREATIVE

We are all born creative, we are all then capable of creating. It is believed that most people stop using this natural ability for two reasons; they decide to listen to the 'rules', or they discover other ways to express themselves. Some of the 'rules' being; 


  • There's only one right answer to every problem. No longer can you draw giant purple people riding three legged unicorns through a field of pineapples. 
  • That's not logical. So much for discovering new things...
  • Behave yourself. Singing in a loud voice through the grocery store is not a healthy way to express one's self? 
  • Be practical. BORING! 
  • Don't be foolish. Can you imagine a world without laughter and humour, why bother? 
  • Don't make mistakes. Don't make mistakes? Trying to be perfect is crippling​.



Being creative is a release, just as any true lifework is. Find something that you can lose yourself in, something that comes naturally to you. Create a life where you are truly happy.

BE KIND
Being generous and thoughtful in all that you do makes a positive difference for you and anyone you come in contact with. Simple concept? 
Kindness improves your health, your work and most definitely your relationships. Everything in life comes back to you. Kindness is a joy to receive.

BE OPEN
