Wanted to share a couple videos I’ve found which have shaken up + encouraged my inspiration library and creativity
Phil Hansen – Embrace the Shake
I love the TED talks – there are some incredible ideas and experiences shared freely that opens my mind to new perspectives. Phil Hansen is an artist that developed tremors in his hand, destroying his dream to be an artist – or so he thought. When he ‘embrace the shake’ he was able to see how limitations opened his world and his art in ways he didn’t imagine + how we can apply it to our lives too.
Sometimes limitations can be a form of liberation. We should seize the limitation + ‘embrace the shake‘ to really get our creative juices going!
John is an internationally recognized leadership expert, speaker, and author who has sold over 21 million books. I love his straightforward way in sharing his expertise and knowledge. I receive his free daily coaching emails with short Minute with Maxwell videos and have enjoyed his quick notes on certain words for the day. (plus he has a beautiful deep voice!)
I loved this particular minute on intuition for a simple, yet insightful perspective on what I’ve always believed. That we’re all intuitive, but in different ways!
Looking back on some of my instagram shots, I wanted to share our journey the last few months + the visual inspiration I’ve been noticing that continues to feed my creative well.
Take time out today to notice the colours and little details that is around you everyday. They feed your creative well too!
Only by taking the moment to pause and notice + appreciate the colours and little details, you’ll see just how blessed and creative your environment really is.
It’s a cliche because it’s true!
There are amazing details + inspiration in overlooked everyday things all around us.
Home is where you are loved.
Home is where you love
Now that I’ve movedhouse 3 times in one year – the big theme in 2012 for my family was building a home. I learnt that no matter how strange our new house was, we were home as long as my love and I (+ Jelly) were together. I learnt that home is more than a house. It’s also more than a space that is just familiar.
Home is a space you can create where you love and are loved.
What if you’re alone?
If you can surround yourself, no matter how new or how lonely a space is, with mementos of love, you have created a home.
A home is not a mansion of luxury. A home is where you are surrounded by your loved ones even if the house is strange and different.
A home is not the house you grew up in. A home is created with souvenirs that remind you of being loved. Even if you’re far away from your loved ones.
A home is not filled with junk and forgotten knick knacks. A home is surrounded with beautiful items that fills you with memories of love and brings you joy.
I'm Brenda Mangalore - artist, designer, doodler, dreamer, durian lover and Jelly’s mum.
