• I have Writer’s Block

    Did that get your attention? I bet it did. It got mine when I realised that I had it. But it’s not what you think. I’m not physically blocked. Not like when Dad passed away and I had to deal with the tangle of emotions I had before I could push through the fog to get there, definitely not like that. I can still write. I write almost every day. Emails. Text messages. Instagram posts. Love notes. Lists. Card explanations. University assignments. Forum replies. I write a lot but I find that I don’t have enough time to relaly write. Did I just echo what you feel? It’s hard to…

  • The Seven Stages of Creativity

    Creativity is a mystery that we all try to pinpoint. And I really started to unfold this mystery with a quote that I open up my computer to every morning when I power it up and that’s: You can’t use up Creativity. The more you use, the more you have – Maya Angelou I have the last two sentences of this quote set up as a wallpaper on my computer and I have to tell you, it took me hours to find it, so it seemed perfect to start this blog post off with a quote like that because it’s perfect in every way. I wholeheartedly believe that the more…

  • Creativity: The Monster That Is

    Creativity is always changing. It’s beautiful and dangerous. It’s never tied down and it’s ever flowing, but do we always listen to its call? Many of us don’t like to listen to it. Or even acknowledge that it’s there. I feel that lawyers, doctors and the likes all ignore the call of creativity in favour for something that is rigid and structured, don’t get me wrong I know a lot of lawyers and doctors and the like and they LOVE what they’re doing. It gives them the same rush that I get out of sitting down and doing the work, so who am I to talk? But I really want…

  • Are you ready to be Bloghearted too?

    Another release of Bright-Eyed and Bloghearted is coming around the corner on June 1st and it’s going to be the only one for 2015 because our beautiful leader, Rachel McDonald, is going to bring her her little bloghearted boy into the world this year! Yay. Now this course, oh gosh, this course has actually been a life saver. It’s content is rich and it’s given me the push to do what I want, you see I was doing BEBH next to B-School and I found that I got more out of Bloghearted alone. I was able to do my about page and share it with the beautiful woman in the…

  • Beyond The Great Divide

    I feel like I just stole a Linkin Park song title…oops. Today I want to talk a little bit about the all and mighty powerful Fear. Fear has been something that I spent my entire life dreading. As a kid I suffered from a case of anxiety that even my doctor didn’t know I had. It wasn’t until I was old enough to actually understand the symptoms that I even know it was a kind of anxiety problem and it seemed to stay with me for a very long time (even now I get mild cases where I have to check and recheck facts and places before I’m 100% sure…
