It’s the little things.
You don’t need a gorgeous office, a fancy computer, a decked out studio or an expensive retreat (although they are wonderful), to revive your creativity and feed your work.
I realized this once again when I downloaded OmmWriter a few days ago (thanks, Tara!). I wrote this blog in OmmWriter and another one since. It was free, took two minutes to download, and it’s giving me the boost I needed to dive into my blog writing with gusto.
Sometimes it’s a cup of tea, a certain coffee shop, a special pen, or a new album (Glee Soundtrack, anyone?) that puts a fun twist on what would have seemed like a mundane task. It’s not easy taking the thing you love beyond a hobby and making it your livelihood. You need boosts along the way.
In the process of chasing your bliss, you can lose sight of what made it exciting or fulfilling in the first place because it becomes work. It’s difficult. As Tom Hanks puts it, “If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the hard that makes it great.”
Try to find a quick, free, fun way to inject your endeavors with something unusual today. It may be the tiny push you needed to build something extraordinary.
Happy bliss chasing,
