Inspiring Thursdays - Inner Genius

A little while ago this year I discovered the coolest resource ever... TED. TED is an amazing nonprofit devoted to sharing ideas. Starting out as a conference in 1984 it aimed to bring people together from three different worlds: Technology, Entertainment and Design. Every year it brings together the most amazing group of people to speak at their conference in Long Beach (which sells out a year in advance every time). These people are the dreamers and the thinkers of tomorrow who are literally changing the world. They get together and simply just share what's on their mind, their dreams, their ideas, their passions. It's amazing. The best part is they put a bunch of the lectures up online afterward so you can watch them FOR FREE.... I could literally loose myself to this website for days soaking in the mass of information is has. One of my favorite videos I have seen so far though is this one I posted up. The lady in in the video is bestselling author, Elizabeth Gilbert and even though she isn't in the same field of art as I am so much of what she talks about has a direct correlation to all artists on a very deep level. So watch and be inspired! But I warn you, if you go over to TED. COM be prepared to get sucked in!

Inspiring Thursdays

Ok I know this is a little more random than most of my Inspiring Thursdays are, but, I do have a good reason I promise! I have found in my life that the more I can keep tapping into my creative side... doing ANYTHING creative... it always always always benefits other creative areas of my life. It's like working out. You COULD just work out one muscle, but your body is going to function better (and not to mention not look very strange and creepy) if you work out all the muscles around it to. That's why I love doing crafts and anything else to just get my hands moving. My brain can zone out and go into creative mode and then that's when I always am suddenly struck with inspiration for something else I'm doing. It's like a trigger to a chain reaction in my brain or something.

So.... to help you out with that, I thought I'd give you a little inspiration in case you're not sure where to start, or what to do. I found this AWESOME website yesterday it's sure to give you a few ideas and a little inspiration to get your creative right brain the jump start it needs!
