Monday Morning Motivation: Building A Creative Space (PODCAST)

Good Enough Mother® - Rene Syler


Happy Monday, Y’all!

Whew! This is about the first time in three weeks where I don’t have an insanely packed schedule and it’s a good thing. Why? Because this is the week my laptop decided to act up. You know what that means… an appointment at the Genius Bar. *sigh*

I wanted to start the week off by talking about building a creative space. Last night, I had a chance to be on stage as part of the first ever, New York City performance of Listen To Your Mother, a stage reading of all things motherhood. I had heard the pieces in rehearsals but to be on stage with the lights up and in the presence of all these creative people got me thinking about the place and space I am in my life.

In speaking with the cast backstage, I was telling them that I really do believe I can accomplish nearly anything I set my mind to. A lot of you already know what I’m talking about since you’ve been on the sidelines (and cheering) during my reinvention.

But how do you get to that “creative space”? Where is it and is there a roadmap to get there? Well, sort of… Pop in your earbuds and take a listen to today’s Monday Morning Motivation. Then get busy!

    I’m SOOOO with you on this one, Rene! It feels like my creativity was locked up for so long. I thought I was good at finding the right formulas in excel and that was my creative outlet. Once again so glad I’m part of the GEMnation where I can let all this creativity OUT!
