Self Help is So Hip

Confession: I’m a learning junkie. I’m not one to be complacent in one stagnant place. Often times this is interpreted as being capricious, but I like to think I have a zest for life. So when The Standard Spa Miami offered me to take a self-help class entitled The Creative Insight Journey with self-help author Jennifer Grace, I was all over it like my husband on the TV during the NFL season.

The 8-week course takes place once a week and yesterday was the first class. The crux of the course? To learn how to tap into your creative source. I’ve learned lots of sage nuggets of truths but I will share with you the notions I enjoyed the most such as:  

• Creative people aren’t only artists in the generic sense! Everyone has a creative energy within them.

• Creatives have high self-esteem, a positive attitude toward failure, intuition, passion, playfulness and fun!

• Have faith in your creativity — have no expectations.

Jennifer also asks us to journal first thing in the morning for 5 minutes, which has been eye-opening as well. I’ll be sure to share more tips on tapping into your inner creativity as I learn more. On that note, are you guys digging my geek chic look above? Don’t I look like the prodigal pupil?

    Nothing gets me more excited than notebooks and binders from b&n. Nothing.
