My Little Corner of Creativity

My Daily Mooosings in the Netherlands is more than a year and a half, and I can't count how often I've begun a post here, with these words: it seems it is  always a challenge to begin blogging and keep at it regularly, when "you've been away" for so long!

The first day of a new month mostly gives me that extra strong push to try once more, and give every little blogging project, I've committed to before, or have been itching to start & complete, another go.

Last year was a more productive year for me with completing blogging & blog related projects:

Just to name the blogging highlights of 2011.

2012 - 7 months in, has not been quiet successful yet in terms of completing blogging projects.  The reason for this, I can say is that I am still adjusting to the recent addition to my passion: running. Even my blogging about this passion is not as consistent as I would like to be @ Happy Feet in the Netherlands.

Plus the fact that a part of me still rebels at the thought that I might be sliding into the old pattern of doing things because I am expected to rather than for creating & sharing for the sheer joy of those acts.

Well, doing what you are expected to do won't be such a bad thing if this blogging corner is a professional job, but it's my personal corner of creativity!

This brings me to the second extra strong push that spurred me to blog and share my thoughts for the first day of the month of August: I am the only one, who can liberate myself from the slumber spell, I time and time again, unwittingly put on my own spirit of creativity.

I came to this conclusion during random exchanges of PMs with FB friends, who belongs to my running group.

This blog is my little corner of creativity, my haven to simply be me, and work on simplifying life.  In this way enjoy more of what life has to offer.

With each blog I create, and share, I affirm a rich life.
What makes life rich? For me it is about having a loving & nurturing family, true & loyal friends, and having a small creative corner, where I could express who I am, share what I am passionate about and perhaps in a small way advocate for good causes I believe in.

Even if it's this creative corner is virtual, it's fulfilling having this medium to live embody my favourite quote:
“Be the change you want to see in the world.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
