I am piggybacking on my blog of last week. I wasn’t intending for that to happen. However, if you continue reading, you’ll see how the other side of creativity lives.
Last week I spoke about the idea of always having to be creative. It should be Business 101, as it is the guts of what draws attention to our Business.
If we lose creativity, we may lose our Business.
It is true. The creativity of Coca Cola, Budweiser, Aflac and more, is what brought our attention to them. And now, they are the giants of their Business.
And again year after year, they continue to get better and better. It’s absolutely amazing.
Bringing me back to another life. I’ve always said, If coming back is a thing…I want to come back to study the mind. I want to be the “Mastermind”
How or what are people doing, thinking, acting which brings their minds to be able to constantly think of the next best thing. Don’t get me wrong. Sometimes yes, the remake or next campaign is not as good as the first. Yet somehow, they figure out a way for the following year, to bring us back.
Although I didn’t die and come back…that I know of, I do believe we have to be and stay creative.
What however, keeps us to continue to thrive to the next best thing?
There are actually many reasons. I’m going to share with you what happened which instigated this article. It’s both eye opening and amazing both at the same time
I love my Sunday mornings. Especially when I’m traveling to the extent I have this year.
No alarm to worry about, no commitments (Hopefully). I can get up, stay in my comfy clothes, read the newspaper “in detail”, drink my coffee snuggle with my dog. It’s pure paradise to me.
When ready, we start cooking breakfast. Weekends are treat days. Eggs, pancakes, muffins, cereal, bacon …..whatever we are in the mood for. And, my husband is usually always the cook.
This morning I decided to make breakfast. Sausage Gravy biscuits. Yum!
Super easy to make. The sauce is in a package you mix with water and the “turkey” sausage is in a package. Jimmy Dean.
It’s the easiest and pretty tasty breakfast.
We sat down to eat and I’m cutting my biscuit, when I begin to reminisce how I learned of this dish. My soon to be, yet feels like Son in Law. When we visited with my daughter and Alonzo, he made it for us.
I kinda smiled and thought “Alonzo inspired me to do this”. A simple thing which brings so much joy.
After that, the idea of this article came to my mind.
Enjoying the simple things like sausage biscuits…a recipe you learned from Family, helps your mind relax. When our minds are relaxed, is when we become our most creative.
It made me start to think about all the times I’ve sat back and closed my eyes, asking God to send me a topic.
What I really needed to be doing is finding a way to relax my own self, in an effort to stay strong and healthy to actually imagine the creation.
When I think about It, I’m always saying do something which helps you inspire others. When I work out, when I eat healthy…I am at my absolute best and I’m coming up with all sorts of ideas.
So maybe it should be that we stop constantly looking for inspiration
We should be making our own inspirations. Something on the idea of having an epiphany. Our minds and our bodies are so relaxed, we can actually see and feel exactly what we need to do. That epiphany was the inspiration from my own self, to push me forward.
Rest your mind, rest your bodies. Do something for YOU.
Build your inspiration so you can inspire others.
