I wonder if any creative people can relate to living in the mystery. We all beat to the same drum … but obviously with distinct drum beats, omnifarious rhythms, on various days and planets. But I wonder if you live in the mystery too?
When it comes to living a creative life, Catherine Stoodley sets a benchmark. As a Creative Arts graduate, she started out as a Music Educator and Performer based in the Blue Mountains, and now through hard work and study, while raising four children with her husband Justen (also amazingly creative!), she has transformed herself into a Music Therapist and has set herself to see lives transformed through music. I really loved hearing Catherine’s thoughts on the life-changing power of creativity and I think you’ll be inspired by her thoughts too!
Need to get refreshed this weekend? We’ve all had those weeks where we’ve been busy, stressed-out, under-the-pump, completely frazzled, and maybe even feeling like we are losing our sanity! The weekend is coming, and all we want to do is curl up on the lounge with a good book … or curl up in a ball in a dark room! But we can’t get refreshed, because there is housework to do, kids to take to sport, baking to be done for that family event, groceries to buy and a lawn to mow! And in all that craziness, we are still thinking about the things that stressed us out at work on Tuesday, or the pile of work to go back to on Monday!
In all the demands and busy-ness, how can you get the refreshing and relaxation that your soul and mind desperately need?!
Here are 6 reasons why doing something creative will help you get refreshed this weekend!
What a delight it was to meet Isabel Taylor (née Winwood) at Colour a few weeks ago! In our brief ‘greet and meet’ time, I discovered that Isabel is a fashion designer, so without knowing much else about her, I asked if I could interview her for Created Creative Collective. I’m so glad she said yes! She brings such a beautiful and gentle perspective on creativity, and the ability to cherish and treasure people through the gift of fashion design.
