Monday has automatically become awesome when the word creativity is put before or after the M -word.
I’m really excited to go down to my local radio station- PHOENIX RADIO and learn a bit about recording pieces of audio. I touched on this in one of my modules at college – I had to write, produce and cast a radio play. I did an adaptation of one of the scenes from the movie ‘Natural Born Killers’.
The most fun I had was putting the SFX – sound effects in.
I also got to act in another colleagues radio play. It is a place I felt quite comfortable acting.
CREATIVE MINDS – a charity I’ve yet to do anything with yet will be hosting this workshop. It will also give volunteers like myself the opportunity to get to know more about the CREATIVE MINDS PROJECT.
I know that I thrive in creative environments so I have been looking forward to today.
I have a couple of ideas I want to thrash out and hopefully by the end of today I will have something as opposed to nothing.
Yeah, it can be scary getting yourself out there and of course I want to be a credit to whatever I get involved in.
So to all of you who are trying new things today. Be it a
new driving route
new holiday destination
The list is endless.
It’s okay to feel nervous and scared. I may not come across as a nervous and scared person but I too am just a human being, I feel the nerves too. I have my own way of dealing with nerves.
I’m going to learn or expand on my learning, give my time and possibly talk about future plans.
I’m trying not to expect too much. I think that is the key..
Being scared and anxious is normal. Meeting or working with new people can be daunting. It’s not a bad feeling to have.
In my experience when I have these feelings, especially when I am doing something different,I see these feelings as a positive . It reminds me that I care about what I am going to do and it tells me I am passionate about whatever it is I am going to do.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to be successful and to want to have the ability to learn new skills and be credited for them.
All these skills and things we do make a great base for what we set up for ourselves in the future. We may not know what is going to happen in the future.
That is cool too.
What is important is that you never stop developing your skills and you never stop working on yourself.
You never know what it may lead to and who it might help.
Sometimes just your presence can be seen as support for whatever it is you sign up for or do.
Give yourself credit for the space you rightfully take up in your world.
A lot of the times what you do has a huge impact on helping others who are doing something new too.
The best way I can explain this is
I’m going to this workshop today. I may or may not think I will be useless. I don’t know much about this project.
How long it has been running.
If it is a new idea or project that someone has put together to see if something creative and productive can come out of it.
Using myself as an example.
If I don’t put myself out there and engage I may never know what could happen.
I may be the only person who turns up.
I’m NOT saying this is the case in this situation but I want you to see how important you and your presence is in the world you live in.
Don’t be afraid of creativity.
