Focusing on your Future for the Creative Types

All of us will come to a point in time when we need to or want to make a change. And even some of us get forced into a change. And Lent seems to be geared to being introspective and thoughtful about your future.

“In times of pain, when the future is too terrifying to contemplate and the past too painful to remember, I have learned to pay attention to right now. The precise moment I was in was always the only safe place for me.”
― Julia Cameron, The Artist’s Way

A little over twenty-five years ago, Julia Cameron released the book, The Artist’s Way.   This book is a little gem of the self-help genre and is especially geared to the creative types.  And it is a workbook so you can really follow the program and not just read about someone else’s journey.

I thought I should share an amazing podcast with Vincent Pugliese, which looks at what comes out of a life crisis.  It is on the Unmistakable Creative podcast which is a favorite of mine.  I do not listen to each podcast that is broadcast, but pick and choose to be inspired.
The Profound Beauty of a Blank Canvas

And for a new podcast that might pique your interest and while it is meant to inspire girls, I think women will find the stories of inspiring women, well inspiring. Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls.

Another thing that you might need to bring back into your life, a vision board.  If you want to make a change, you may need to think about where you want to go.  Here is a good website to get started or head to Pinterest.  Vision Board how to get Started

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.
