Let Go and Focus
Creativity is the ability to see fresh connections between what is already there.
When you can see beyond the ordinary with fresh eyes you see original connections your imagination will soar. When you push beyond your comfort zone, you go into unknown territory, and here you discover your authentic self patiently waiting for you. Your guide is your intuition. Experiment, explore, try it and if it doesn’t work, move on to the next idea. Your imagination is infinite. Know it and trust in it.
