Welcome to my takeaway episode from my conversation with Anne Witherspoon on episode 72 about her three BF to AF journeys culminating in harnessing her creativity and finding fulfillment.
In my takeaway episode, I’m discussing the importance of becoming self-aware of our creative talents and how pursuing them can bring tremendous fulfillment into our lives.
Many of us have talents that we may not even be aware of. It’s crucial to give ourselves permission to explore and pursue them. When we do, we open up a world of possibilities that can lead to a life filled with creativity and passion.
However, many people are afraid to share their creations with the world. But it’s crucial to embrace our creativity and overcome our fear of judgment. We should do it for ourselves and for the fulfillment it brings.
Anne Whitherspoon, who wrote a book to help others avoid mistakes she’s made, is a great example of this. She overcame the thought that no one else was interested in her creation and wrote the book for herself.
In midlife, it’s important to be mindful of who we are and to discover and pursue our creative talents. If you feel the need to create something, go for it!
My challenge to you is to answer this question.
What is your creative talent? If you know it, what are you doing with it? If you don’t know it, there are many ways to find your creative outlet. What have you been putting off such as writing a book, taking guitar or dance lessons, learning to code, mentoring teenagers, or volunteering at an assisted living facility?
Giving yourself permission to find and pursue your creative talent can move the needle on the fulfillment meter in your soul. So, explore your options and see where they take you.
Leave me a voice message to tell me how you’re pursuing your creative talents.
