Clearing Out to Create

Las week I bit off more than I could chew. 

I had this big, detailed list of things I was going to

  • Clear
  • Create
  • Learn
  • Connect
  • Read

I started on almost all the items on my list.  

But didn’t manage to complete many of those tasks.

So much stuff!

I didn’t complete the clearing.

Or the creating.

Which leaves me feeling frustrated for not finishing.

Sadly, this isn’t new for me.

Some things we have to learn again and again.

I used to make my list too long when Dale was little, when I was teaching, back in student days.

It can become a habit, not the good kind, to always overshoot and then focus on what you didn’t accomplish.


Clear before you create:

Clarity of thought, mind, air, and surroundings helps you to challenge assumptions and make space for the creativity to come through.


Challenge yourself or your child to focus on that one next step to move forward.



And be sure to pay attention to and celebrate small wins and pebbles of progress.
My small wins from the past week:

First amazon book review!
I really had fun beginning to learn to use Adobe Spark and finding new trails of learning about design that interest me.
Got the details for the anniversary party invite and the menu decided.

Over to you:

What were your small wins last week?

What old belief or assumption do you want to clear out?

What will you create this week?

Wishing you a wonderful week of learning all the time, enthusiastically!
