Ahhh 🙏🏼 for the first time in weeks with the hurricane of changes finally able to sit down and get the creative hat on. Letting the inner child free and inviting Peter Pan to play with some nourishing activities for mind, body and inemy* 👌🏼✨🤓🙃
The perfect Monday evening 😎📝🖍✂️🖼 *if you don't know what an inemy is where have you been hiding my friend? 👀 An inemy is what I like to think of as the little scared child in each of us that sometimes (okay, okay a lot) gets pretty loud and tries to run the show out of fear.
Know the one? Yeahhh...the one that tells us we're not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough. *yawn* 😴...it's often confused with an enemy because damn does that inner me have some crazy off the charts thoughts!
I do not believe that we should try to quieten, ignore or silence that voice and narrative because it's a part of who we are and it's always going to be there in some shape or form (and that's totally okay too by the way) but when we begin to look at the deeper message and work out what needs to be heard, vocalised and brought to the table it's amazing the shift in mind set that can take place.
A lot of it is plain old nonsense sure, but if we can learn how to wade through the murky unchartered waters of fear then we can learn to tune in and pick up on what our inemy needs us to hear. And for the most part, he or she just wants to be acknowledged.
Exploring your creativity is a wonderful way for your inemy to be expressed and nurtured in a calm and safe space. Creativity comes in many forms and it doesn't need to be in a traditional painting or drawing sense. My creativity is through how I move my body, what I feed her and all those glorious adventures.
So tell me, what's your creative outlet? 🙃✨
