Some of you know me as a writer. I love to write. I love seeing my words published online, or even more exciting to me, on the page. I love painting pictures with words, creating worlds and giving life to new people.
Some of you know me as a photographer. I think I was born with a camera in my hands. I see the world differently. Looking through a lens frames the world in a new perspective. Making a new focal point in an everyday scene completely changes the way it looks.
I want to share a course I stumbled across in my daily search for knowledge. After all, many of you have heard me quote my Mama: “If you haven’t learned something new today, you’ve wasted the day.”
The course I found was Sebastian Michael’s 21 Days to Creative Abundance. Now, I am just starting this course. I listened to and watched the first video yesterday while Darlin’ was driving me home from dinner. You have no idea how hard it is to take notes in a Jeep being driven by my Darlin’ on some of the horribly, bumpy roads in South Texas. Let me tell you, it was a challenge.
All that aside, two things Sebastian stressed in his first video were journaling – not jotting it down journaling but dig deep journaling – and accountability. I decided to combine the two here, on my blog, where words come out to play. Now, I won’t be sharing everything with you. Some of it will be too personal to see the light of day. Dig deep journaling can be that way.
I won’t be sharing his exact lessons either. That wouldn’t be fair to Sebastian. I would encourage you to sign up and take his course with me if you want to unleash more creativity in your life.
What I will be sharing is some of the new work I will be creating, some of the new truths I will be discovering, and a few of the handy quotes Sebastian shares with us – the ones that strike a chord deep inside me.
What I ask from you is a gentle nudge now and then to keep me on track. Hold me accountable to follow through and complete the assignments every day for the next 21 days.
Now, I’m off to find the perfect journal and my favorite pen so I can get to work accessing my creative flow.
