Our culture's narrow view of creativity leads many of us to think that we are actually not creative, when in fact we are all creative. We are creation itself and it’s everyone’s nature to create.
We are all makers. Maybe we make music, paintings, books, poems, jewelry, pottery. Maybe we dance. Maybe we are culinary artists. But creativity is not contained here, these channels for creativity are way too limiting.
I love those avenues of creativity. I could spend all of my time immersed in these forms of creativity, either making these things myself or relishing what others have made. But this view of creativity is terribly limiting. Some of us make homes, families, dinners, memories (I’m a terrible memory maker btw). Some of us make gardens, we make vacations, weekend outings, event with friends, we create our look every day, what we wear and how we style our hair. My point is that we all have this creative spark within us and it’s our choice to use it or not use it, and further more, it’s our choice whether or not we create from (what Martha Beck would call) our societal self or our essential self. What our essential self wants to create is divine expression and is purely authentic. Those of us that are too enmeshed with our societal self will likely see ourselves as uncreative, or untalented.
You must make stuff! Don’t think about it too much. Put your heart into everything you touch. That can be hard to do because culture can be mean and judgmental and let's be honest, culture has been telling us since birth how we should be acting, talking, what we should be wearing, who we should love, and how we should love, so this whole process can feel kind of confusing and you may feel like you need to hire a coach or a midwife in order to create ANYTHING.
It’s ok, though. You can learn all on your own, and sometimes that's the best way. It will only get easier as you practice. Maybe you start with eating a beautiful meal that you love regardless of what the latest diet trends are telling you to eat. Or maybe you just wear colors that you love even if they seem like “too much”. (Cont’d in comments below 👇👇👇)

ENTRY from @_tossywrites - SAMSUNG
When you see a lion you know one;
This you carry as an entity for appearance.
Mobile phones were never exquisite, sleek and classy, not until you came into the market;
Very bright and clearly displayed.
Seemed like a real bad ass of the year.
A real propitious slush
Sleek, white and powerful.
When others had screen full of low-lit, you marched into the arena with a full touch screen.
Your camera resolution is very superb;
That when I took pictures with you, all I did was to scream!
No edits, no filter, just raw capture.
And you recreated me the way I am.
You amazed me the most when you saved up my best memories in your gigabyte space.
Oh! Your storage makes me jerk and twerk.
You make me self reliant and give me full assurance when it comes to mobile phones.
With you by me, I stay in touch with family and friends.
I love you and I will always want you my dearest...... SAMSUNG

Your blog should focus on one main longtail keyword that is incorporated in approximately 2% of your text. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is a good rule of thumb to make sure you're not keyword stuffing which Google doesn't like. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remember that keywords are important but should not take away from the quality of your post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you blog isn't an easy read due to your focus solely on keywords and other SEO tactics, it can turn your audience off which is the opposite effect you want to have. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Do you pack nice clothes when you’re traveling for a while?
When I’m in casual wear for weeks on end, I start feeling a little schlubby.
I brought a couple fancy shoes and shirts from New York City, mostly because I couldn’t bear to part with so much of my wardrobe!
But now that I’m on the road so much, every extra thing I carry around seems like more trouble than it’s worth 😂
