Do you know how you are going to thrive? You can do this when you know that there is something that you want to do. You may be doing certain activities that will make you feel energetic and stimulated in order to do your best. You know that through the activities you are doing, you are able to express yourself. Sometimes, you become so good at unlocking your creative side that you are already using it in order to build your career and earn your own money.
Then all of a sudden, you will feel that you are not creative anymore. You cannot help but just become distracted by the skunks in the backyard and your thoughts are all connected to how you will get rid of the skunks when in fact, you know that you are only distracting yourself because you do not feel your creative juices flowing anymore. Your skunks should not be a big problem especially since there are pest control companies who will be in charge of taking the skunks from your home and bringing them to correct areas where they can live well.
Perhaps there are some things that you can do so that you will begin to re-discover your artistic side and you will feel alive with doing the things you are set out to do again.
- Do not get discouraged by criticisms. Criticisms are there to encourage you to do better. It should not make you feel that the things you have done are wrong. You cannot seek praise all the time and you cannot avoid criticism either. They are always there. The best thing that you can do is to just enjoy each piece of art that you make no matter what type of art it is.
- Remember that you can be your own greatest critic. There will be moments when you feel like your work is no good even if other people tell you otherwise. Be honest and look at what you have created with honesty. Is it good? If it is then can you still do things to improve it?
- Wake up one day with no intentions about what you are going to do. You may be a careful planner and you have already planned the life the you want to live. Doing this may be recommended but it will be enough to quash your creative juices. Try waking up one day not knowing what you are going to do. It will make you feel more creative than usual.
- Try to be surrounded by nature. There will be days when you just need to go out of your house and observe your garden. Just make sure that the skunks and other pests are not there anymore. Try to look at your surroundings in a completely different light. It will help you have some thoughts that can help you become more artistic and more creative.
Sometimes being creative does not mean that you have to be alone. There are times when you can be talking with others and suddenly, you will have a great idea that you cannot miss. Do not forget to write down the the idea on paper so you can push through with it. What other activities have you done in order to unleash your creativity?
