Declare Creative Independence

We’ve all earned a day off I’d say, but nevertheless, I thought I’d stop by here quickly and urge you to rethink your priorities and responsibilities as we head into a holiday weekend that’s all about freedom, rebellion and dumping tea into the sea.

Claim your creative independence and reassess where you’re headed and where you’re aiming to be.

Here are a few questions to get you started. Are you marshalling your talents effectively? Are you squandering creative energy on people or situations that offer no respite or resolution? Are you – like me – wasting to much time with “what ifs” and “could-have-beens” and ignoring the blessings that are populating your life right now?

Today – in honor of our Founding Fathers – rebel against the forces that are conspiring to hold you down, quartering your assets, and demanding you pay a surcharge on even the slightest creative urge or impulse. Just for one day, dump the “crazy makers” in your life, ignore any plea that doesn’t involve a trip to the emergency room, and take a deep breath in the space of your own freedom.

Don’t bail anybody out.

Light your own sparklers.

Keep that ‘smore all to yourself.

And remember what it’s like to do it because you want to do it, not because you should, or you must or it’s expected.

Happy Holidays!
