I’ve often wondered if I was a farmer in a different lifetime.
Growing up I always felt out of place in the city and knew I was supposed to live on a farm somewhere. My all-time favourite Christmas present was a tin barn set.
And I’ve spent many a Sunday morning totally engrossed watching Prairie Farm Report.
Creativity is a highly captivating and attracting force. Try being around creativity without feeling energized and ignited yourself.
The trick, however, is to not confuse the vibration with the expression.
Even though I can feel juices flow watching an artist, a cook or a musician, my attempts at the same turn into an abyss of struggle. Thoughts turn to frustrations of not feeling in me what I feel radiating from them.
And I’m more than positive the realities of farm life would greet me with a stark smack in the face.
Doing something, in particular, will not make me creative.
Being ever more me, on the other hand, throws the doors wide open for creativity to flow.
And when creativity flows, the world catches on like fire.
Thank goodness creativity seeks as many expressions as possible instead of just one or a few. I’d be so hooped.
There’s no end to the unimaginable where creativity is involved. There’s no box big enough to hold all of creation.
Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but you’re only trying to be someone else.
Don’t look to what others are doing.
Simply look to being you and creativity will take care of the rest.

Crazy for cats and potatoes, Lorraine's insatiable curiosity of Life leads her to question, explore and push beyond the box. A self-professed "left-brained creative big picture" type, she has an intuitive knack for seeing beyond and beneath first appearances while at the same time nerding out on the details. Most of all she sees and holds others in their highest until they can see it for themselves.
