GOD bless the exes!

GOD bless the exes!

Okay so I know this may sound weird but I am really thankful for my past loves.

No seriously. (Stop laughing and/or giving me the side eye.)

I was tweeting yesterday about understanding your personal love language. Your love language (by my definition) is the way you show love. It can also be the way you best receive love.

I have found that the most clear way that I show love is by devoting time…

Simply needed to write a few things out

Simply needed to write a few things out

So, I have found the need to write myself out of this depressed state that I am in.

Of course you wonder… “Why so depressed? Don’t you realize how blessed you are compared to others?”

Blah Blah Blah

Yes, I realized that I am an extremely blessed woman. I have a million things to be thankful/grateful for.

That doesn’t change the fact that I suffer from clinical depression and generalized anxiety…

Let’s have a bit of fun. Take your birthday and write it out in numbers.

For example: November 3, 1978 would be 11-3-1978

Now add those numbers up, however you want.

Examples: 1+1+3+1+9+7+8=30        

or 11+3+1978=1992              1+9+9+2=21    

If your two digit number is greater than 26 then you need to add those two digits together.

Example: 3+0=3

Take the number you get (as long as it is…

Come up with titles. These can be titles of stories, poems, art pieces, or songs. Create titles for works you haven’t created yet. You simply like the title you come up with.

Then later you can read your list of titles and see if it sparks a creative burst.

Step outside of your comfort zone and do something different.

If you are a  writer, write from a perspective or on a topic you have never explored before.

If you are a visual artist, try a different medium or subject matter.

If you are a musician, play something new to you or something you don’t play often.

Your comfort zone is nice… but very little creativity grows there.
