Are you open to creativity?

Now that I have declared myself open to creativity, I find myself saying things like ‘I had to get up at 2am last night to write a poem’. I don’t think I have ever written a poem before.

Love Your Green Eyed Monster

I think we might have our relationship with jealousy all wrong.

Yesterday I wrote a post about turning procrastination into a useful tool and the same can be said for jealousy.

We spend our lives searching for what will truly light us up, our so called life’s purpose. Then we see it in someone else; the awesome yoga body, the perfect outfit/home/car/holiday/job. It creates tension, discomfort. So we call it jealousy and shut it down fast. label ourselves as failures and pile on the guilt for having had such a feeling

Jealousy is like a compass to determine what is right or wrong for us.

Why do I feel jealous of advanced yogis but not of advanced kick boxers? Because my inner guidance system is showing me that yoga is for me and not kick boxing.

Don’t obsess with finding that one thing you are meant to be doing, obsess with being on the right path.

Next time you feel jealous, appreciate your body for the signals and take a small action step towards bringing whatever it is you are jealous of into your life.

Even the smallest of actions will take you from feeling miserable to joyful and aligned.

As Danielle LaPorte says  ” envy is often a call to action”.

Let me know in the comments section at the bottom of the page something that you have been jealous of and one small action you could take.

Why I love Procrastination.

Why do we complete some tasks with such ease while others create such resistance?

Maybe it’s the universe letting us know that it’s not the exact moment that particular task should be completed. Maybe there is more information, energy, help, guidance or whatever heading our way to complete the task correctly.

I love procrastination. It is my biggest source of motivation to get stuff done. Seriously, you should see how productive I am while procrastinating on a particular item. I will do anything other than that task. It’s the time when I fly through my long-term ongoing to do list.

We need to trust that what needs to be done is always completed in the end. With this trust we can let go of all of the guilt associated with procrastinating. Guilt just adds more resistance. We really are doing the best we can with what we have available in any given moment.

Sometimes we might be struggling with procrastination because we really do simply need a break. We’re not lazy. It’s the quality of our breaks that determine the quality of our work. As entrepreneurs, business owners or parents it can be so hard to draw a line between work, rest and play.  The following poem taught me this lesson.

  FIRE ~ Judy Brown

What makes a fire burn
is space between the logs,
a breathing space.
Too much of a good thing,
too many logs
packed in too tight
can douse the flames
almost as surely
as a pail of water would.

So building fires
requires attention
to the spaces in between,
as much as to the wood.

When we are able to build
open spaces
in the same way
we have learned
to pile on the logs,
then we can come to see how
it is fuel, and absence of the fuel
together, that make fire possible.

We only need to lay a log
lightly from time to time.

A fire
grows
simply because the space is there,
with openings
in which the flame
that knows just how it wants to burn
can find its way.

It’s time to embrace procrastination instead of beating ourselves up over it. Procrastination can be a useful tool; it can be a subtle clue that it’s time to rest or play. Procrastination can be something we use to empower instead of defeating ourselves.
