LIVING A CREATIVE LIFE IS A CHOICE

Living a creative life is a choice- I am an Artist, a Creative, a Highly Sensitive Person- and I have chosen to live responding to every call that excites my spirit.

I have chosen to be inspired every single day, and honor the path of my Soul.

I have chosen to be me, and express myself fully and unapologetically from my heart, and live with abandon, following my bliss.

The choice is always yours. Don't let anybody tell you who you are and what you're supposed to do.

If creativity and your Soul are calling, there's just one thing you can do: you have to make your choice.

For me, the secret for a happy, effortless and fulfilling life is very simple.


Simplify as much as you can. Find all the possible ways to do more of what you love, and less of what you don't love.


That's it.

SIMPLIFY BY LEARNING TO SAY NO

August 14, 2023

One of the things that has hugely contributed to simplify my life is learning to say "no". One thing are life responsibilities and necessities, but what about all the rest?

I want to feel joyful, lighthearted, free and inspired, and so several years ago I consciously and deliberately decided to stop saying yes to what didn't inspire me, made me feel great, and I really wanted to do.

If I really want to do something, then fantastic! But other than that, I have learned to say no to invitations, to friends, to relatives, boring phone calls, business opportunities, social media, and to basically anything that could take away from me precious time and space for my own self-care and soul nourishment. Those are the things that more than anything else make me feel great and full of energy and inspiration- and give me deep JOY-so I started saying yes to those, and no to all the rest. 

Instead of filling my days with unnecessary and uninspiring activities, I prefer to spend my time doing well the work that I adore doing, taking care of myself, resting, napping, going out in Nature, walking, exploring, creating, writing, reading, meditating, journaling, dreaming, cooking, tending to my home with love, spending time with people I adore to spend time with.

If you feel like you don't have the time for what you really want to do, and you often feel obligated, start saying no to parties, meetings, invitations to go out with somebody you don't feel excited to spend time with. Say no to everything that is uninspiring, and to all unnecessary activities. Declutter your days and your to-do list. 

This is something that will greatly enhance the quality of your life.

Try your hand.

SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY

For several years now, since 2009, I have been on a quest to simplify my life. 


What I've lerned along the way, after lots of experimentation and trial and error, is that in order to simplify, you have to actually.... simplify


Reduce quantities. Own less. Do less. Want less. Need less. Uncomplicate the complicated. 


That's it.


I have had a great deal of success with this philosophy in my personal life, and I'm always looking for new ways to create more ease, more lightness, more freedom for myself. And ultimately, more peace, JOY and abundance. 


There is so much JOY in simplicity, in being able to breathe in a world that holds its breath.


I am on this path, and I couldn't be more excited for that!


You with me?

NEW BEGINNINGS...

July 30, 2023

It has been such a long time since I last posted on this blog... And now, out of the blue and all of a sudden, I felt a sweet desire to come back. It took me literally two seconds to decide to once again follow my heart and say "YES!" to the Universe, yes to my Soul. And here I am. I have absolutely no idea what to write about, since I still have my other blog on my website, but as usual, I'll go with the flow.

I took this picture last month while I was doing a little picnic and photoshoot in the garden with my planner and journal, enjoying the Summer light and my handmade quilt. Looking at this picture now, it seems to me that it's from a lifetime ago.

In fact, I've been extraordinarily active this past Winter, Spring and Summer- acting upon a powerful and steady inspiration. I have been doing a lot of work as of late- inner work, outer work. Work for my wellbeing, work for my creative business, work for my home, work for my happiness. Work that my future self will be very grateful for. I've been decluttering my mind, my heart, my studio, my wardrobe, my home, my days. I will certainly tell you in other posts about all these things.

I've also decluttered this blog, as you can see! This new blog theme- so clean, so uncluttered- came to me synchronically, and of course, being deeply aware that it had everything to do with the deep desires in my heart for more ease and more simplicity, and all the momentum I have created in my life as of late, I instantly said "YES!" to it as well. And now my blog feels like a fresh, new journal, full of exciting possibilities.

As for now, I'm just enjoying this satisfying and happy feeling of a new beginning... and I will be with you again very soon.

Until next time,

Monica xoxo
