A Life Brimming in Creativity

Guys, I suffer from a bizarre mental illness that I thought was cured after seeing the world.


And while I realize that not even being 22 yet I have lived an incredible life. I've been blessed with the pinnacle of opportunities in those things which I am interested in. I played in some amazing recording studios, I played my violin in one of the most beautiful cities in the world,  I circled the globe in 22 days, I dated (what I thought to be at the time) my "dream guy," I have a wonderful eclectic set of amazing, quirky,  artsy friends gushing with rivers of personality and this summer I get to spend my days working for a creative marketing agency.  I look at what I did, what I'm doing and I know I'm where I want to be.

So let's focus on the first two sentences of this blog post so we don't go too off-topic: that infectious disease called insatiability. It comes and goes. Right now it's probably bitten me in the butt because I'm a week away from transitioning into new things, new opportunities, a new life, and I have confidence in things changing for the better.

So what is it that I want? More of something, something muchier, something I clearly am coveting because I feel I lack but then I look in retrospection and I'm not???


Eh? That's really a problem for you? It really isn't. It's been clear since I have been able to draw pretty well since I was four or five as well as make up whole epic worlds and story lines for my imaginary characters (and stuffed animals) that I'm probably gushing in creativity myself.

But I seem to love it so much, this wild, artistic romantic sense of freedom that creativity gives me that I just. Want. More. Of. It.

I stumbled across a couple of design blogs, cool Etsy accounts, and some Pinterest things recently (Particularly this blog ).  And it makes me want to push myself creatively.

I want to not dress so conservatively. I want to learn how to braid my hair and wear pink/ ruby red lipstick. I want to improve my web designing skills. I want to learn how to make French dinner crepes and Moroccan chicken. I want to make an amazing summer mix tape/CD.

Taking creative risks. Walk on the wild side in the right way.

It's become clear in writing this post what I want to get out of this upcoming summer.

  1. Love this post! It's so true, creativity brings so much happiness!
    It's why I take so many pictures- why I cook- why I redo rooms in my home.
    You're going to love adult life with a little more time and money to be creative :)
