Do you consume more than you create? We consume thing like food, clothing, housewares, electronics, information, entertainment, social media and much more. A part of you desires to contribute something in the world in order to give a part of yourself and feel connected to the greater whole. Consumption can sometimes feel like it’s filling that void but if you’re consuming more than you’re creating you’re not meeting it in an authentic way. What do you have to give? Maybe you’re artistic or creative or you like to write. Maybe you are a good listener and you like to help people. Creation can take on many different forms so pay attention to what you’re curious about. Remember also that consumption is safe and fun and lights up the pre-frontal cortex. Creation initially might feel scary because you’re being vulnerable, you might not be good at it and other’s might judge it. But please don’t let that stop you. You are here to give something that only you can give. We want what you have to create.
