I love, love, LOVE this quote from Julia Cameron! It reminds me that all of my interests and talents are a gift, and I should make more time for them. They were given to me to help make the world a better place, and the greatest contribution I can make to the world is using the gifts and talents that were given to me.
In Julia Cameron’s book, The Artists Way, she writes about the connection between creativity and spirituality. It is a wonderful book and I highly recommend it to anyone who would like to make more time for their creative self. 🙂
I believe that God is the true creator of all works of art (photography, music, books, dance, painting, etc.). When we allow ourselves the freedom to let our inner artist flow through us, there we discover our authentic self. When we nurture our creativity, God works through us and it may seem the works are created effortlessly. Using our creativity provides us with a sense of peace, love, joy, and fulfillment, and it is the way to authenticity. We are all born with creative talents…we just need to spend more time discovering ourselves to unleash that talented artist within us. So, take some time today and go create something! You’ll be glad you did. 🙂
