Step aside, creative person coming through!

Humility is something that Ghandi used to talk about a lot. I had to look up the meaning of the word, which should tell you how much ‘humility’ I practise. The definition talks about being humble – kind of obvious. But for me, I think it means finding some peace in your daily grind. It means that you don’t sweat the small stuff.

There’s apparently a space or mindset you can get to, where things like chores and traffic and washing dishes don’t bore the living daylights out of you. I have yet to find this mythical space. It feels like the older I get, the more admin seems to creep into my days. It also feels like my passions are becoming these distant memories. Things that used to occupy my every waking moment, like my music and my little art projects, have taken a back seat.

So, I’m on a mission to recapture my youthful daydreams. Instead of thinking about what to cook for dinner in the traffic, I’ll make sure I notice how beautiful the sunset is. And when I’m grumbling about doing dishes, I’ll pause and regroup so I have some energy to paint a masterpiece or something later.

Forget anti-aging creams and botox, I’m going to skinny-dip my way to a younger mindset. Watch this space and prepare to be inspired!
