HAVING FUN WITH OTHER RIGHT- BRAIN ESCAPE ARTISTS!
I am boldly preparing to enter into a realm I am not familiar. I’m allowing myself the freedom to enjoy this experience, giving myself permission to be a risk taker, knowing there are no guarantees of success. I do not have to get an A+, nor worry about any outcome or produce a great product to show for my labor. It is great to know I can freely access this arena without the approval of, understanding, or even the agreement of others.
I invite other to join me in this quest, although it may be challenging. Why? Because I am asking those who are willing to abandon themselves for a moment in time; they get to allow their right brain to come out and play. Doing so while ‘not allowing’ their left brain to dominate and determine if they should or should not be creative and free to express that which is hidden within. Everyone has a vast array of creativity, much of which has been hampered since childhood. If allowed, can now be revealed in a beautiful display in the present.
As I began the adventure of writing a blog, my mind continually questioned my reasoning, why even bother? No one was really going to read it and I should be doing something more productive, after all, I shouldn’t be wasting my time! There is real work that needs to be done. All that said, it is true in many ways. Nevertheless, I decided I would use this format to practice showing up at my computer, disciplining myself to be diligent, be creative and produce a somewhat intelligent post, hoping it would make sense in the event someone actually did read it.
Being willing to be vocal, vulnerable, while being creative, I had to actually push that blue button that says ”Publish” once I finished writing. That action is another way to deal with the fear of rejection, judgment, ridicule and failure. How many times did I submit something late at night, and upon waking read it and find more than one error? Too many to count, sad to say. Nevertheless, if I waited until I could write a perfect post I realize this page would always be blank.
A word to the wise….For less errors, write posts at a decent hour to avoid the nod out factor in between words. It is difficult when we are too tired to see glaring mistake that others will immediately once our work is posted. All that said, blogging is one way to be creative.
Going back to the original challenge: Anyone who is willing to step away from their routine way of thinking, (left brain dominated) and give themselves permission to allow their right side brain to be active, being creative, artistic and playful, I challenge to step out side their own box into a new way of thinking and living.
