Fourth of July will be here in a few days. I'm sure you're planning the bbq menu, going to the mountains, the beach or maybe you are just going to lounge in the pool? Good for you! Take some time to reflect on what it means to truly be independent.
Life is really about living. Playing hard after working hard and savoring those moments. In order to rejuvenate the creative soul we need time to be outside playing, connecting with nature and manifesting those pleasures in life.
Perhaps, as you read this you feel regret as you can only identify with those that are working the weekend or holiday getting ready for a show, getting ready for the conference or just making new work that you are behind on. Are you experiencing overwhelm, overcommitment or maybe you are just exhausted? Unfortunately, I know that path all too well.
However, true growth comes from taking a step back and examining the past. Did I learn from yesterday, last week, or last month? Being able to reexamine, reflect, and recommit to new patterns, let's me play a bigger game of abundance. It's okay if I have to spend some time cleaning up old patterns and bad decisions.
So I make the realization that today I lived imperfectly and that's okay. Tomorrow I start my day with a strong foundation of honoring myself. This is living life more creatively.

15 Steps to Living Creatively
Close your eyes and envision the last amazing piece you made. Think about how you felt. Ohhhhhh do you have goose bumps and that funky feeling in your tummy? Can you see yourself at your bench, with all your tools and the music is playing just the right tunes.
The idea for the piece came to you effortlessly and you confidently executed it. You were on fire as each part of the design came together. Joy and energy radiated at each step, all the way to final outcome. You were proud and amazed at what you created! Like giving birth to a part of your soul!
Yet there are times we are "blocked" or just can't seem to find any creative spark. This is usually because we are overwhelmed and exhausted.
It's just time to clear away the excuses and clean up the old patterns. Start with this foundation of 15 ways to live more creative:
