It takes imagination, play, adventure, and mindfulness to learn how to create our own experiences. When taking life as an art form, we choose to work it, shape it, and create it, instead of it working and shaping and creating us.
Instead of staying hooked on the problem, we begin to create solutions. Instead of feeling helpless and stuck, we begin to create new pathways, attitudes, and perspectives. Instead of giving our power to everything outside of us, we are refocusing on everything we can control and have full creative power over— ourselves.
Why should life be an art?
Humans are designed to be able to change ourselves and our environment — we are gifted with intelligence, creativity, and craving the fulfillment of solving problems and creating better things and experiences for ourselves. We are designed to want to create, grow, and evolve. That’s how we went from drawing in caves, to creating big screen visuals with mind-blowing special effects.
With such highly complex minds designed to analyze, create, learn, and grow; having ownership and control of such a thing would require more than just passive existing.
Many of us never learn how to be directors of our own lives, and so we end up feeling disempowered while trying to control the stuff we have no control over.
To let life just happen to us would be ignoring the great power of the incredible creative machines we own.
Learning how to take it and use it takes nothing less than artistry — which requires skill and time and effort.
What the art of self-creation requires:
- A fierce craving to want to experience the most personalized, truest, best and fullest life you can live.
- Knowing that we have the power to change and create ourselves.
- Knowing that we are meant to grow and evolve.

Self care & self understanding.
The art form:
Taking the raw materials of circumstance and creating with it anew.
Seeing the self as an art to be re-created, improved, sculpted, enhanced, and re-approached.
Knowing that nothing is set in stone and we are meant to create and re-create.
Seeing resilience, patience, and hard work as beautiful tools of the trade.
Having an open mind, free spirit, and sense of adventure.
Finding personal balance between everything.
Allowing multiple viewpoints and approaches.
