2020 has been rough for almost everyone... All is not lost! Below I have detailed my favorite inexpensive but impressive homemade gift ideas for your inspiration! Christmas doesn't have to break the bank and I have found that people love the thoughtfulness of homemade gifts!
To create something, is creativity. Your creativity cannot be compared to creations of others. It cannot be bad or less than. Creativity is an expression of you and your unique perspective of the world. Not everyone will appreciate your specific creativity, but it isn’t for them, it’s for you. Here are some examples and tips for how you can add creativity to your life.
Learning creates new connections between neurons, giving you a rush of those happy hormones. If you feel stuck or bored with your life, try something new. You don’t need to quit your job or move to a new town, something simple can give you the spark you need! There are more opportunities for learning new things in your community then you may realize. Don’t stop with just one! Make lists of things that you are interested in learning; things that will improve your career, personal life and mental well-being.
A Photography experiment
I am surrounded by creative minded loved ones and then there is me... I am analytical minded (hence the career choice of accounting) but have always longed to have creative talents. I've always been too insecure about trying creative activities to actually put myself out there. BUT NO MORE!! I've realized that it doesn't matter if anyone else thinks what I do is good or not. The only thing that matters is that I have fun doing it and am proud of what I accomplish!
Happy New Year!
