I was thinking
about the concept of creation and how creative we really are, whether or not we
think so. I was watching one of those competition reality shows (Project
Runway) where there was a grand prize at the end, after many creations and
challenges. The designers have to be judged weekly on brand new creations
and ride the highs and lows as they work through the good and bad times.
As I was thinking
about it, I was wondering what life would be like if we created from scratch
everyday, like these designers do. They stare at a clean slate
Let's take the
concept of us having a clean slate each morning. Well, if we have that,
does that mean that everything we do has to be re-created?
On other words, if
our slate is clean, we not only have to create our day but everything in
it. We have to generate happiness, accomplishment, strength - all those
things that we take for granted will just show up.
Sure, we have a
foundation, those skills that will bring us to a place of making those
creations. But do we always tap into them? Or do we let things
happen and react?
Maybe it's time we
pull on those skills proactively and create our own canvas, our own design, for
what's going to happen with us. As we do that, we may find as we are
already drawing on our own ideas and qualities, others may not have the
influence on our day as they usually have because we've already set a framework
of how our day is going to go.
Is it always going
to be perfect and beautiful? Not always. But maybe we can increase
those productive and positive days more now that we're aware of what we want
for our day. It gives us a bit of control and co-creating with Spirit and
our subconscious and conscious mind.
So why not take a
few minutes, every day, whether it be in the shower or while having your
morning drink, to set up in your mind what kind of day you're going to
have. Start your sketch. You'll find it much easier to carry it out
if you have a plan.
Then at night,
take a few minutes to review your day. Did it go the way you want?
What went well? What would you like to improve on? Think about your
day and what you'll build on tomorrow.
Being conscious of
that canvas, that design, will bring you to a new awareness of how much you're
in control of your day and your life. Be proactive and be creative.
You may see a big shift in your day designs.
