Welcome to Everyday Creative People! – Ep. 000

I’m so psyched to announce the launch of my brand new podcast, Everyday Creative People!

I created this podcast because I think there are a lot of misconceptions out there about what it means to be a creator, and who gets to be put up on a pedestal and given the label of “artist.” I believe that creative people come in all shapes and sizes, and that cultivating a creative practice is healing for the soul. In fact, I think that creative play is an essential ingredient for self care, and something that we don’t get nearly enough of in this results-focused, electronic device-dependent modern world we live in.

I’ve personally experienced the crippling effects of self-doubt, fear, and lack of direction in my creative life – and the resulting burnout from my professional life because I wasn’t getting the self-care that I needed to thrive. It took not one, but TWO bouts of burnout before I finally started figuring out how to re-ignite my own creative practice. And maintaining it is an ongoing journey.

So, I created this podcast for people like me. It is my hope that my listeners will get inspiration, ideas, tools and tips for how to deal with the challenges you face in your efforts to cultivate a creative practice in your life. If this sounds like the kind of thing you’d like to listen to, please take a moment to subscribe to Everyday Creative People, so you never miss an episode. And if you’d like to be part of a community with other people who are also on this journey, please come join the conversation over in the Creative Playground Facebook group.
