Reclaiming my Creativity – First Steps

SHBritmumsI’m looking to enhance my life, and feed my soul. It’s all part of the plan to raise my depression and release myself from what feels like never ending boredom. So two things happened yesterday, first I read this tweet..

Yep, so that’s why I can’t write, don’t want to make anything or take any pictures, I really am not feeding my creativity sat in front of Diagnosis Murder sobbing into my cuppa.

Secondly, I came across an article entitled  How Noticing the Everyday can Help Bring us Back to Ourselves,  in a back issue of the wonderfully inspiring magazine, The Simple Things.

Now consider this. If today was your last day on earth, whose face would you want to see? What scenery would your eyes want to savour? Can you imagine how poignant the sunset would be, and how you’d cherish every single thing you laid your eyes upon? Spend the rest of the day looking at your world as if there was no tomorrow. Find the beauty in the ordinary magic of the life you’ve built around you.

Isn’t it funny how sometimes the things you are looking for appear before you, yesterday these two gems of encouragement floated into my atmosphere and I took hold of them and claimed them for myself.

So today I’ve come up with a bit of a plan, I’m going take part in this months Snap Happy Britmum and take a picture for each day of the month related to the theme of the day. I’m a day behind so there are two today. I’ve set up a Pinterest board for my snaps which you can find here.

But so you can see the small sparks of my creativity starting to glow, here are my first two attempts.
