Year of Living Creatively Manifesto


-- Creativity is our birthright
-- Everyone has a calling
-- We are never more than a breath away from a breakthrough
-- This is the perfect moment to begin
-- Self-expression begins with the self. Know thyself.

-- We are all infinitely more creative than we think we are
-- We have a gift. It's time to open it.
-- Celebrate what makes you unique
-- Ideas may be a dime a dozen, but the process of transforming them into reality is priceless.

-- Choose!
-- Creating creates you
-- The Creator of everything lives within you.
-- It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. It matters what you think.
-- The only failure there is is being afraid to fail

-- Infinite possibilities await
-- You are a star. Shine!
-- Do what makes you come more alive
-- We are human beings, not human doings. When we know that, we can do anything.
-- Make a mess. Then clean it up. Then make it again.

-- Give yourself permission
-- If at first you don't succeed, try second
-- We need each other to help us realize we don't need each other
-- Everything begins as an idea
-- Something wants to be created through you. What is it?

-- You are already empowered. You were born.
-- If you need help, ask for it
-- Trust yourself
-- Have more fun
-- Celebrate who you are

All of the above is included in The Year of Living Creatively -- an eight-week, online course designed for anyone wanting a boost, jiggle, or jolt to help them turn their impulse to create into a reality.
