For All The Artists
a colorful heart with the words, one essential component of being an artist is to be alive
Naive Artists
We are sold the idea that being naive is a negative trait. I would never have thought to become an artist without it.
Whose timeline are you on?
We decide there are deadlines and timelines for life events? Because we as humans have created such ideals. We have milestones hung all around our human existence. What happens when your life does not fit into a neat linear trajectory? Artists by the very nature of what they do will never fit into a prescribed timeline. Art does not get created in this way and we as artists are not conduits of creativity on a scheduled timeline. This episode takes a look at how to navigate this if you are a creative.

The Side Effects of People Pleasing
The Side Effects of People Pleasing - and how it can impact your creativity. Read the full post
Quitting vs Taking A Break
There seem to be two schools of thought: one is the prevalent one, winners never quit and also the binary version which says we should know when to call it a day and quit before we invest any further time/money/energy into whatever venture we are partaking in. The most important question that can arise for a creative is whether they should quit the whole idea of pursuing their art in the first place or if they have started and it is not panning out the way that they had hoped, whether to call it quits and admit it didn’t work out and it was worth the try but you don’t feel inclined to lend it any more of your time and energy. What if what is actually needed is a break without a time restriction on it?
Using Your Imagination For A Positive Outcome
What are you using your imagination for? Are you using it to worry or assume the worst about yourself or are you spending time imagining the outcomes that you would want, the ways you want to be. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are conjuring up images of ourselves and our worlds constantly and so there comes a time when we learn to better utilise the gifts of our imagination. In the final episode of Uncovering Your Creative Confidence we take a look at how we can better use our imaginations for our creative goals.

Uncovering Your Creative Confidence Series Part 5
We walk around with quite a lot of assumptions. We have these nice, sanitised ideas of how things should look, how they should be and when they don’t show up how we imagined, we feel like we have failed, or something has gone wrong when the only thing that was wrong was our assumption.

Quit using negative motivation
Motivation is seen as a positive word and something we all want. To feel motivated to do what we are wanting to do. But as adults, we could have cultivated a habit of using a negative form of motivation to move us. It still causes us to act, but it does so from a place of fear and not being good enough.

Uncovering Your Creative Confidence- Part 2
What do you think of yourself? What do you think about what you create in terms of your art? How do you talk to yourself? I am going to bet that some of the things that you think about yourself, and your creativity are not very positive. There is a distinction between being aware of our flaws and being dictated by them and seeing them as a focal point. When we perceive ourselves from a negative viewpoint, then we create a list of things about ourselves that we need to fix. And fixing anything takes time and energy. The same time and energy that could be better utilised elsewhere. Don’t forget you can download the free digital journal to follow along or complete in your own time.
