Creativity Takes Courage | Welcome August

Welcome to August. It is a very significant month for me,  mostly because I’m born in it! ๐Ÿ™‚ This August, I’ve decided to go all out with my blog and pledge to write here every day!

Creativity Takes Courage 

Yes, it does. But I’m trying to be brave. I’ve signed up with a group of bloggers to be a Write Tribe Pro Blogger. Notice the lovely badge on my sidebar? If you’re a blogger, and a brave one, do join us.  You can sign up here. creativity  takes courage

You’re going to wonder where all my resolutions to slow down have gone. I’m slowing down while focusing on what matters to me. Nurturing my creativity is certainly high on my list of things to do.

In his book The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Achor uses the ancient Greeks’ definition of happiness: “the joy you feel striving toward your potential.”   Pledging to write every day is a big step towards increasing my happiness quotient, for I’m striving towards my potential.

I don’t fool myself. I’m not a fantastic writer. But I want to be the best I can be. I need to share the stories within me. I take courage in this:

Even a seemingly tiny story can travel great distances and deeply affect other people. Your stories matter. Let them out to affect other souls. ~ SARK


Earlier this week, I asked you ‘What Would You Do If You Weren’t Afraid?’. For me, writing every day is one of the answers. What’s yours?

Be creative. Be brave!

I must learn from my other blogging pal, Sacha, ย whose birthday was in July, celebrates all month long. I’m so happy she included me in her celebrations by giving me a space on her blog yesterday. ย So I’m going to have a happy celebration of my birthday month too! Yes, it’s in August and it’s a big number one! […]

  4. […] August is my birth month. Which makes me examine how much, if at all, I’ve grown in the last year. As I think about this, I look around for inspiration to grow in maturity, love, faith, hope and ways to nurture my passion to write. Today I’m sharing with you some of the quotes I’ve come across in my search for inspiration to grow. […]
