What do you think of when someone tells you to create what makes your heart happy?
Do you even know what it is that makes your heart sing? And if it’s not something you have yet, would you have any idea of how to going about creating it?
I’ve been pondering these questions for awhile now, ever since I started using the phrase “Create what makes your heart happy” as the sign off on my daily newsletter.
You see, in my “other” life, I run a site that caters to people who make journals and planners and other low-content products. I create things like coloring pages and journal templates that they can take and turn into their own products to sell. And so telling them to create what makes their heart happy is easy… I want them to take what I’m sharing with them and actually create products that make them happy, because when you are happy with what you’re creating, it’s so much easier to put it out there to sell.
But lately I’ve been thinking about creating from a whole life point of view, not just as a creative soulpreneur. And I’ve decided that what truly makes my heart happy in this moment is writing this blog, and sharing with you the joys of doing what really makes your heart happy.
For me, that’s writing and creating beautiful journals and planners to inspire and uplift you. I’ve even got a free one you can check out when you sign up for my newsletter list.
But that’s just the business part of me.
So what if what makes my heart happy is something completely unrelated to the act of physically creating a piece of art, or a journal or any other type of physical object?
I don’t know about you, but I have a whole list of things for my life that I’d like to create, and every single one of them would make my heart sing with joy!
This is one of the things that I want to explore with this new blog. I want to play with the notion of creating what makes your heart happy, no matter what that looks like for you. And for me.
I’ve come to the conclusion that creating doesn’t have to be about making art, but it can be. It can also be about creating the best life for you, the relationships that lift you up and empower you, the home you spend your time in, the way you spend your time, and a whole host of other things.
I’m looking forward to playing with those ideas. And I’m looking forward to playing with you too!
What will you create that makes your heart happy?
