How to Get Creatively Unstuck


Right before I started typing this post – just a few moments before – I felt an urge to sit down at the piano and play and sing. The song of choice? You Really Got a Hold on Me (She + Him, The Beatles, and Smokey Robinson all have fantastic versions of this).

Singing and playing piano is an amazing creative outlet for me. It generates so much of the work I do on this blog. It has seasons of active pursuit and active rest. It’s always there for me. And because I’m very connected to my creative energy and I can sense where it wants to go and how it wants to express itself, I feel really fulfilled creatively. It’s that simple.

So, why does creativity trip us up?

Why does creativity make us feel stonewalled – like we’re not unique enough, like we flat out aren’t creative, or that we have “too many” creative passions to even focus and act on?

Well, creativity doesnt make us feel that way. We allow our ego to make us feel that way.


I hope today’s vlog can make you feel more confident in your unique creative capacities and I hope it can inspire you get out there and just … experiment. You ARE creative and you deserve to creative just for the sake of creating. Just because. Now, let’s chat…

All my love,

P.S. – If you want to go deeper into this, I want to invite you to join me for a free masterclass NEXT Tuesday Sept. 22 on how to get creatively un-stuck. We’re going to be diving deep and freeing up that sacred, creative space within you. You’re going to LOVE this. Click here to join us!

    I enjoyed this video, and it resonated with me as I was just talking to my other hald about how I’ve neglected my creative passions for a while now… I guess perhaps it’s a season of rest! When I signed up for the class it said it was the 17th but on this page and in your video it says the 22nd. Clarification, please? Thank you!! 😀

    I conceive this internet site has some real superb information for everyone. “Anger makes dull men witty, but it keeps them poor.” by Francis Bacon.

    The 15lbs propane tank will need a entensional hose with the adequate connector for the tank. Usually, you can find those entensional hose at local hardware store.

    Chicken Invaders is better?! What kind of games do you like? Casual stuff I assume. Score Rush is my game, but still I don’t think there’s a comparison to the underlying gameplay. Back to the basics. It’s only $1 or 80 MPS too. P.S. So cool to have it a part of this contest!
