Plenty of us create on a daily basis. On some days we are happy and passionate with what we are doing and on others we lose interest, the whole process begins to feel like an obligation or a chore and at its worst we become sloppy in our creativity and creation methods, not to mention hopeless.
So, how do we recover? How do we get back on track?.. baby?
I’m gonna place on top of all points my today’s thought which ignited this post.
- Immerse in our Creation
Ooh, sounds deep and intellectual.. and I’m trying to sound like that actually, so yeah – there you go. OK, what do I really mean by this?
Basically, during the process of doing creative work we might lose our focus to the technical aspect of it instead of its essence. That’s not necessarily a bad thing as we do have to get technical to a certain extend, depending on what we are creating, but we might be endangering the outcome. We could become unmotivated in the process. We could also simply get off the course and end up with a “it-seemed-so-different-and-better-in-my-head”.
So to keep focused and effective we can remove all distractions orbiting around the purpose and realign with the essence via immersion in our creation. We can reflect, meditate and finally immerse in our creation to actually live what we are creating so that we can act in the most effective manner. It may require to acquire additional knowledge to accomplish this or get in touch with a different side of ourselves, for example emotionally.
For now, I am leaving this up to here as food for thought and as reminder to myself on how useful this piece of information can become in those times where our initial love for something creative is tiringly fading away; and we know it shouldn’t.
Keep up the good spirit! x

Great delivery. Solid arguments. Keep up the amazing spirit.|
Thank you! Much appreciated!
I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. cheers
OK, basically this is a theme (the 2015 default actually) and I’ve kept it mostly as it is because I love minimalism although I am capable of customization. I’ll probably be adding some watermark-ish glyph to promote my identity.
I have used WordPress. You’ll need some Web Hosting & WordPress expertise to get this working. About the Web Hosting: you’ll need a WordPress (PHP) capable server and you’ll also probably need to pay for it yearly. Now, about WordPress: it is free and usually the Web Hosting provider provides tools to install it. From there and on you’ll be able to customize your blog. You don’t require developer expertise from there and on but if you want customization you’ll have to dive in – learn how plug-ins work at first (which I believe it’s the easiest route for a beginner wanting customization) and later do some development of your own if you are up for it or pay one to do it for ya.
Hope this helps for now! 🙂
OK, checking a bit more, the WordPress theme is called “Twenty Fifteen”. It’s Version: 1.2 by the WordPress team.
Quoting from the description of the theme:
“Our 2015 default theme is clean, blog-focused, and designed for clarity. Twenty Fifteen’s simple, straightforward typography is readable on a wide variety of screen sizes, and suitable for multiple languages. We designed it using a mobile-first approach, meaning your content takes center-stage, regardless of whether your visitors arrive by smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.”
