The Art of Everyday Living

If you've been following these new(ish) Resource Wednesday posts you've been able to see that I am a HUGE podcast fan. I'm trying to find additional resources to share with you, but in this seasons of my life podcasts are a big way that I learn, receive inspiration, and tap into the current conversation around business, art, and creativity.

Sarah already recommended the Makers and Mystics podcast to you in a previous Resource Wednesday post, but I heard one today that I thought was especially appropriate for our Bright Ideas community. Emily Freeman, author and speaker, gave a compelling keynote at a recent Breath and the Clay conference about The Art of Everyday Living (click here to listen). Everything she says resonates with what we believe here at Bright Ideas and much of what we talk about here on the blog. I thought that you might enjoy hearing a similar message from a new voice. I love Emily's perspective, her way with words, and her heart. I'd love to hear what you think! Let us know in the comments. Enjoy!

Here's a few quotes that I really loved:

"When God made art, you and I came out."
"I am the art, and writing (my artistic expression) is the evidence...that I have come fully alive in the presence of God."
"A realization of freedom always leads to artistic expression because free people move into the world as who they most fully are."

Emily is a creative entrepreneur, born in the South, raised in Colorado, and loving life in Brooklyn, NY. As the co-founder of Bright Ideas she spends her time doing freelance photography, writing music and blog post, designing pretty web things, drinking coffee, experimentally cooking, and exploring NYC. You can listen to Emily's music, follow her adventures on Instagram or Twitter, see what inspires her on Pinterest, check out her photography on Facebook, or hire her here.
