“Life is a blank canvas, and you need to throw all the paint on it you can.” – Danny Kaye
The great thing about life is that any given day we can wake up and decide to start over. Today is the first new day of a bright new year. Why not take advantage of it? Imagine a big bright white canvas that you can start painting and creating on today. It is a canvas with tremendous possibilities.
I know a blank canvas can sometimes seem daunting. But, at the same time it is so exciting. It creates an unlimited amount of possibilities and opportunities, which can create fear. Fear of messing it up or even putting too much on it. These things keep us from stepping out of our comfort zone. We desire a fresh start, a blank canvas, but we become frozen and never start painting.
Here are 4 invaluable tips to help you to start creating your canvas today:
- De-clutter your mind – When you are thinking about creating your new day, and your new year, you must clear your mind of all the things that make you anxious, all of the things you put on your goal sheet and action plan. Clear your head and jus start dreaming.
- What inspires you – Ask yourself that question and write it down. It can be multiple things. Knowing what inspires you can help you to get started.
- What do you want your year to look like – Create that picture in your head. Where are you? Where are the places you want to go? How do you expect to feel?
- What projects will you indulge in to make these things possible – Where are you going to travel? What events will you attend? Who do you want to meet? All these answers will help you to be able to see your creation in your mind.
If you take the time to sit in a quiet space and just let your mind dream again. Answer those questions as if anything is possible, because it is. In the day-to-day hustle, it becomes easy to overlook that in every moment we are creating our life. We are throwing the paint on the canvas, and in turn, are responsible for what that masterpiece looks like. Spend some time dreaming every single day. Take a walk without your cell phone. Un plug from social media. No matter where you are in your life, it is not too late to create YOUR masterpiece. Get ready and decide that 2018 is going to be a ridiculously good year.Throw some beautiful paint and have fun with it!
