Hope, the Root of Creativity

Sitting on the beach with my camera in my hand during a sunrise, it’s like meditation to me.  The breeze is tranquil, the salt air that I breathe in is soothing, and the sounds of the waves as they wash upon the shore flow to the heart beat of my dreams.  I am at peace as I focus the lens towards the rising sun, the shore birds running along the water and the crabs as they scurry across the sand.  Sea gulls invite themselves to fly close and land in the sand near me.  It’s a new day, a new beginning with endless possibilities like looking out to the sea and viewing the vastness of water.

Hope

I have read that each individual remains on a quest or has their particular place that encourages peacefulness.  I truly wish that each will find that comfort.  I don’t always have the opportunity to sit on the beach, but I can get away from the demands of daily living, by closing my eyes, if only for a moment, and retreat to what gives me clarity to my priorities.

I am not one that can say, “All my ducks are in a row,” or I have lived life with no “regrets.”  I may have my moments of confusion and discouragements, but learning from where I have come and believing in where I am going, gives hope that something brilliant will come out of those times of disappointments.

When I am able to find peace of mind, then I am able to reflect on what needs improvement.  Accepting the struggles with the blessings, gives me a feeling of balance, then I am able to focus on what matters.  With each experience and walk in my journey, I have gained or improved on skills and talents.  If life had been easy, organized, well-planned, then how would I have learned problem-solving, developing my creativity, or appreciating those moments of meditation.

I cannot speak for others, but having regrets motivates me to strive for my dreams today.  I may have taken a path in the past that was confusing, discouraging, and disappointing at times, but there were blessings too that have continued to guide me to where my dreams are taking me.  In my opinion, to be creative, want to create, and dream to create something to be shared, then one must have that one ingredient; “Hope” that always offers a guiding light through the storms.  To a moment to say “Thank you,” while refueling in the safety of a harbor.  Hope can provide the courage to set sail on that adventure into the unknown of the journey of life.

Encouraging Creativity

Encouragement

Encouragement is a powerful act that can motivate the best from someone. To give those praises in words, claps, hugs or eye contact can spread with positive affects to improve on a talent. Encouragement is to inspire, to stimulate confidence by an act of approval and promote the progress of growth from the gift of sharing a positive spirit. Sharing that invigorating spirit can be so energizing and it is a sensational feeling when I am encouraged to do my best. It is just as rewarding to provide encouragement and see the glow, the refreshing smile, and the sparkle in one’s eye.

When a child receives praise for a job well done, the child wants to do it again. It is the same for teens and adults, when given the encouragement; they strive to succeed at school, sports, jobs and their dreams.

I truly hope that as my children grow and I offer guidance to my grandchildren, that I will give them the inspiration to do their best, follow their dreams, and progress with knowledge that they will find peace in their talents.

It is incredible what power I and each individual holds to strengthen another individual’s dreams by just offering encouragement!
To hear those words that promote:

You can do it!
Fantastic!
You have a remarkable talent!
You did a phenomenal job!
I am here for you!
I admire your work!
I am so moved!
I am so proud!
Job well done!

Those words assist with the growth of confidence. The confidence to grow and dream!

Creative Determination

Thought for Today

My Thoughts for Today!

Determination is an essential and significant element to the creation of a dream.
I may have the imagination and my thoughts swimming with ideas, but they remain hidden like a treasure buried and unknown to others until I become determined to create and share. From society’s expectations, I face daily demands and stressors that I accept to be a productive adult, but I remain in control of my interpretation, attitude, and perceptive when I strive to create a vision that adds fulfillment to living. A dream can evoke strong emotions, sweet thoughts, and uplifting desires, but the journey begins in the pursuit, the courage to strive and take a risk, and shape that dream into a living reality that can be shared. No matter what the challenge, I remind myself to stay determined and never let go of my pursuit, accept the risks of failure to bring to life the creation of my dream. Determination is the energy to my beating heart to live!

A Dream

Create with imagination,
Reach to achieve,
Explore each aspect,
Attention to each detail,
Trust in your confidence,
Express with charisma.

Anticipation, hopeful attitude,

Determination, earnest desire,
Receptive, positive suggestions,
Expectation, unlimited possibilities,
Aspiration, willingness to strive,
Motivation, bring into existence.
