Capture Your Creativity

Dear friends,

As we’ve started to settle into this new year, with all of the hopes, dreams, and opportunity, I’ve started to marinate on some themes that have been rising to the surface for me. After coming out of the heaviness of 2023, the challenges and difficulties and the emotions that come with it, I’ve noticed myself yearning for and leaning into a more playful, lighthearted mindset and energy for this new year.

There is so much I want to create and foster in 2024, I desire to be a positive force in this world and have so many intentions to not allow whatever life puts in my path defer me from my dreams and desires. And I wish all of this for you, too.

Being a creative person and using my abilities to create things in this world has always felt elusive to me. I used to think I wasn’t creative, that somehow I didn’t get that trait in life. And if you feel this way too, I want you to know deeply that this isn’t true.

We are all creative people with unique creative processes. We all have ideas buried within us, waiting for us to acknowledge them and allow them to come to fruition.

In thinking of creativity, Elizabeth Gilbert and her book, Big Magic, often come to mind. I read Big Magic years ago, when I first was contemplating my own relationship with creativity. Elizabeth’s words in this book inspired me and reignited the knowing within myself that creativity exists within all of us, we just have to be willing to recognize it.

Every year around this time, when contemplating what my focus will be, I think about this quote from Big Magic, “Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?”.

Being creative in this world takes bravery and confidence, but when we act on those treasures of our souls, there is no more worthwhile endeavor.

This year, my creativity is leading me towards completing and releasing my first book. This has been a passion project of mine for years, and I am so excited to finally share it with you.

What is 2024 asking you to create? Let me know in the comments below!

xo, Michelle
