Welcome to Fun & Games! By now, you’ve walked through your backstory, and discovered the wealth of treasures waiting in your creative garden. You’ve dealt with hard things, put the past to rest, and opened the door to a new creative future. The road may not have always been easy, but you did the work and made brave choices.
Now it’s time to have some fun!
After all the effort of Backstory and Discovery, Fun & Games is the. . .fun part. Now you get to play, to try new things, and to watch as your new-found creative talents blossom into skill sets. Take a swing class, dabble with some water colors, maybe even try your hand at improv. The opportunities here are limitless!
Fun & Games has only one rule: don’t be too serious! It’s easy to get hung up doing everything perfectly and excelling from the start, but this isn’t about going from newbie to pro in no time flat. Fun & Games is about giving yourself time to learn, develop, and discover more about your uniqueness and talents. You have plenty of time - a lifetime, in fact - to develop your skills and grow in excellence.
We will talk more this month about how Fun & Games works, what creative play looks like, and how to avoid the perfection trap. In the meantime, you’re invited to play, to explore, and to grow in all your beautiful creative gifts. Let’s have fun!
