I have some new math for you!
Creative mind + Spontaneity = New ideas
I used to think I wasn’t creative, I thought that was my sisters job. She was always the artist, the actress, the writer, the sewer, the musician, the stand up comedian.
I always had my nose in a book and did some counted cross-stitch now and again.
I played the piano, but not as well as her.
I was funny, but not as funny as her.
I was dramatic, but I couldn’t memorize lines like her.
Or so I thought.
And then one day it hit me.
I AM CREATIVE! WHAT???
I am creative.
And I have lots to say.
And I am really good on a stage.
And I can cross-stitch like a mother fucker.
I don’t just read things, I write them too.
When my kids need help on the piano I can jump right in!
HOLY CRAPOLA! I AM CREATIVE!
All through my 20’s and 30’s I had thought I wasn’t good enough to be creative. I was too busy comparing myself to others.
Now that I am in my 40’s spontaneity is my middle name and that is where all my good ideas come from.
Remember the math.
Creative mind (we ALL have one) + Spontaneity (go ahead I double dog dare you) = New ideas (and believe me we really need your ideas!)

PS. I don’t love math, but I would LOVE to help you work out this new equation. Let’s explore new ideas and start working together. Get on my schedule and let’s talk today!
