HOW TO SUSTAIN CURIOSITY, INSPIRATION AND MOTIVATION AS AN ARTIST

HOW TO SUSTAIN CURIOSITY, INSPIRATION AND MOTIVATION AS AN ARTIST

Starting a creative art business is hard. I’m sure starting any business is tougher than people expect. Staying curious, inspired and motivated is essential to keep moving forward.

Combining a love of creativity with wanting to share awareness of animal and wildlife rescue worldwide, drives me on. But there have been times when I have felt so challenged.

Hours of energy and devotion go in, with no guaranteed results. The building blocks take time. Sometimes things flow, other times it’s a struggle. And creating can be a lonely process, unless you are surrounded by a creative community.

I've been listening to an I Ching podcast (a form of ancient Chinese text) which took me back to my experience of visiting an I Ching master in a Taiwanese temple. Here are some wholesome thoughts for the day.

  • Love yourself first to create the space to love others and for others to love you

  • Care for your soul - the light and the dark

  • Forgive yourself and embrace your shadow - for this will resolve the fears and doubts that have been the obstacles to your desires and dreams
