Door to Creativity

Creativity has many dimensions and we all can be more creative. Creativity force which exists in each human being needs to be rediscovered. We all can reconnect to our creative self. Creativity is in all of us however it is what you do with it that counts. It is possible to open ourselves up to greater and greater creativity.

When we really love ourselves, everything flows in our life. Treat yourself well. When your inner self is happy, it also appears outside. In fact there is no here and there. that sort of separation is just an illusion.

One of the best ways of treating yourself well is taking regular breaks during the day and spending time in nature really helps. Love what you do. If you don't, find it.

Life's just too short to be doing work that destroys your essence. Find work you love and get busy changing your world with it. I really mean this. I was a very successful debt consultant, having worked in the industry for 7 years and won several awards including a nomination for " The Debt Consultant" of the year in London however when I rediscovered my creative side and fell in love with painting, I knew I could not do anything else any more. We are encouraged to believe that our life should somehow fulfil the expectations of others. I believe our one and only responsibility is to listen to our inner self. Your heart screams out the purpose of your life… Don't let the voice of our original self to be overwhelmed by the voices of other people’s expectations. When we find what we are really meant to do, we really want to do it. That is the clue!

I would like you to name your dream and perhaps write it down. I believe in the benefit of writing dreams down. Not just writing them but feeling them. Once you write them down have a think about what action you can take to move closer to your dream. Make an action plan and choose an action. Reading this article and making a list of your dreams is an action! We should write because it is human nature to write. Writing brings clarity and passion to the act of living.

I remember vividly taking some time off in magical Olympos, South of Turkey and making my 3 months, 1 year and  5 years dream list. One of the dreams was an opportunity to share my creativity with less fortunate kids and shortly after that trip, I was invited to Istanbul to Gunay Life Academy, Dragos to do a workshop with children who live in an orphanage. It was an amazing experience to spend time with them and share the beauty of Aboriginal art with them. 

Creativity flourishes and groves among friends. I remember my very first painting and I am most grateful for the amazing feedback I got from my family and friends.

I am an artist and a talented artist and I accept creativity as a blessing. I would like my creativity to give people peace, love and hope.  I am happy to share my creativity openly. You too can open the door to creativity!
