Dec 2: Create

Reverb is an every-day-in-December journalling/blogging practice. Each day features a prompt that either helps you integrate the past year or envision what you want to create in the next one (sometimes both). If you want to follow along with me, I’m posting a prompt on my Facebook page every morning.

Dec 2: Create. Describe one thing you created this year. How did it feel to create it? How does it feel to look back on it now?

My Right-Brain Business Plan is tacked up on a wall in my office (aka the guest room). It’s pretty massive, considering that I’m only on Chapter 4. So far the plan is a collection of nine collages of varying sizes from my Big Vision Board (4 feet long) to my values cards (6 inches square). And Matthew says (with love and amusement) that it looks like a rainbow threw up all over the wall.

He’s kind of right. But that’s good, because whenever a business workbook asks “if your business was a colour, what would it be?”…the answer is pretty clear: EVERY colour.

It felt amazing to create the plan, although the process has been really spread out. I found that I couldn’t force it…sometimes things just hadn’t percolated and I had to step back and wait until they got clear (that would be why I’ve had the book for more than 6 months and I’m only on Chapter 4). The waiting part was hard, but when I was ready everything would suddenly come together…I would find the images and the words I needed almost like magic, and I would work in a blissful creative frenzy until the section was done. There’s a lesson in here somewhere.

Looking at my plan now, I get this happy glowing feeling. I love the colours and the way it lights up the room. I love how every glance at the plan inspires me. It’s the essence of me on that wall. It’s a statement of what I want to create in the world. It’s pure magic.

Eventually I want my plan to cover the entire space. And I want to keep adding art that matches it…like my sparkly silver dancer and my dreamboards and my flower (on the black background). I’m a rainbow person creating a rainbow business. As far as I’m concerned, “It looks like a rainbow threw up all over it” is a COMPLIMENT! 😀

  1. Oh. Em. Gee.

    I’m glad I’m waiting to read yours till after mine are done. Otherwise, you may not have believed the similarities we both wrote about. Hee!

    Yours is very pretty. 🙂 Wish I could see it up close in person.

  2. I think a rainbow threw up is a great compliment too.

    My art journal is my favorite creation. I started it in April of this year. Showing it to a friend yesterday I realized how meaningful all the images in the journal are to me. I love art Journaling!
