This is the second part of my blog, What Are Ways For Nurturing Creativity And Inspiration? Read Part 1 here.
KEY WAYS FOR NURTURING CREATIVITY:
When I shine my authentic self, I open the way for others to be empowered. My victory at expressing my true self allows others to see their own possibilities. My win is your win. Happy people create a peaceful world. This is a solid reason to believe in myself as a creator.
Your conscious mind needs breaks. Your subconscious is always absorbing for you, so you won’t miss out.
Take a much-needed break, knowing that ‘time on the shelf’ (a phrase coined by pyrography artist, Amanda Packard, featured on YourCreativeChord Podcast) is exactly what’s necessary to rejuvenate inspiration. When you come back to your creative process after a rest, you’ll find your energy has exponentially grown.
How do you handle negative self-talk or doubt within the creative process?
I pray about negative self-talk or doubt. Prayer in Buddhism is not wishing or asking external help. It’s making a determination to win over weakness, enjoy, appreciate, and use struggles and victories as personal mission to encourage others and repay gratitude.

Sometimes we even doubt our ability to be creative at all. In those moments, if you have my inspiring 2020 Nature Calendar, you’ll get a friendly, warm, gentle reminder that you’ve got this.
Creativity is in your life just as it’s in mine.
My calendar designs are based on my personal creative process of finding time for self-care, especially through experiencing nature. There's scientific research proving that experiencing awe improves your optimism and lowers stress.
Nature is a constant source of awe. Research shows wellness improves even if you’re looking at pictures of nature instead of being outdoors physically!
Release Your Stress To The Air
I want you to see how incredible you are. How easy it can be to release your stress to the air and relish the vibrance and wonder that nature brings to your senses. Exploring the profundity of nature’s compassionate force can put you back in rhythm with your own inherent creative flow.
That’s why I made my 2020 calendars.
And yeah, they aren’t mass distributed. These are limited editions (and almost sold out!) that I personally designed as a resource for nurturing your creativity and inspiration.
I used decent quality materials so you could write your personal events and notes on them easily. I left plenty of white space so you can set and track your personal goals in the same place where you’ll see a joyful or peaceful moment in nature.
The same place where a positive affirmation will be to encourage you about your infinite creative potential.
You can feel how I incorporate authenticity, an open heart and sincere determined effort in the creative process from these calendars. You can see why this visual and written format is important to me.
If I can make something out of the simplicity of an ordinary moment within my day, so can you. These calendars were made to empower you and me toward manifesting our beautiful relationship with the unceasing compassionate power of the universe.
That’s why I made these calendars.
