“Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written….or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life…It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.”
– Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing & Life
The Big Juicy Creative Life
Do you want that life?
You know the one… Where you see beauty and depth and meaning in the ordinary. Where you pour your heart out on the page or on the canvas or on hardwood floors in dance shoes. Where you make beautiful things, or not so beautiful things that absolutely need to exist. The kind of life where a little bit of your soul is on display – in the stories you tell, in the songs you sing, in the flowers in your garden, or on the walls of your home. Or maybe it’s in the art that’s written on your skin or worn on your own body.
I want that life…the big juicy creative life.
Maybe you want that life, too.
If you do…if you want to light that creative fire…here’s some more inspiration.
What would a big, juicy creative life look like for you?
