Day 3373 – The Importance Of Getting Out Of The House As A Creative

Nearly every week, I meet up with a local custom jewelry designer and have a co-working meeting. What’s really really really awesome is there is some chatting, varying based on the type of week either of us is having, but for the most part it’s a “hey, how are you?” “Good? Great, let’s get to work.” Our headphones go in and we barely talk for a good two hours. Friends, having a co-working friend who will work when you work and not take it personally when you have headphones in, is priceless.

The productivity varies each week too, but most weeks, I get a lot done. I work on my travel blog for the most part, but on some days where I’m really far behind (haha, like today where I’m writing on this blog at nearly 3 pm versus the normal 8/9 am).

As I’ve had this practice, I’ve found how much it really makes a difference in my week. These days, I’m pretty busy with our real estate investing business. So to have a few hours each week to get out is really awesome.

The photo below was taken at our regular stop a few months back. There is such a great vibe here in the coffee shop. There’s never any rush to leave. The staff is really nice and I just love being here.

Day 3204 – Poetry And The Creative Mind Day

One aspect of myself and my creativity is poetry. For a myriad of reasons, I’ve kept this part of myself tucked away. It seems I’ve always enjoyed writing poems, but for some reason or another, I just haven’t. Since attending a poetry reading, and purchasing a truly epic journal (see below), I’ve found myself writing poetry nearly every day. I’ve been reading great books on fostering creativity.

It seems as a rule, having a childlike joy and wonder with the world is a key to having long lasting creativity. Coming to situations with fresh eyes. Playing, just for the sake of play, awakens parts of our brains we try to keep quiet.

I still have a ways to go in increasing my play and childlike wonder in life, which is a good thing, I think. Realizing it’s a long game, and something I will always be striving to attain, is a relief. Much like learning – there will ALWAYS be something to learn. There is no reason to stop learning.

What is your favorite creative outlet?
