Grandma Moses started painting when she was seventy-eight. Harry Bernstein achieved fame as an author at ninety-six. Julia Child wrote her first cookbook at fifty. Viola Davis gained fame as an actress in her forties. Colonel Sanders began Kentucky Fried Chicken at sixty-five. As for me? Although I’m on the older side of life, I continue to discover new layers of talent, creativity, lightness and joy.
Have I always enjoyed a light spirit? No! Life wasn’t fun when I was a kid. I knew I was loved, but I also felt invisible, voiceless, overwhelmed by senseless rules, and tormented by school bullying. My childhood could have been a disaster if I hadn’t accessed my imagination. I visualized myself as a world-famous actress, singer and writer, spending endless nights making up plays and stories.
My imagination was a secret place within me that no one could destroy.
There were also teachers who inspired me. I felt numb in school … until the singing teacher waltzed into the classroom with her bright smile and beautiful voice. As I sang along, I experienced an unfamiliar joyful stirring in my soul. In choosing my first career, I followed these clues to happiness and became an early childhood music teacher. The gift of being surrounded by children’s laughter, silliness and wide-eyed curiosity transformed me, and I apply their magical “secrets” into my life every day.
“Free Yourself to Be Yourself” Right Brain Activities
As a creativity and healing arts specialist, I meet adults who don’t think they have a playful or creative bone in their body. They never knew it was healthy to daydream, or they became pragmatic and gave up their dreams along the way. It is never too early or too late to discover what gives your spirit delight, and it is my passion to encourage everyone’s inner child to dream, create and have fun.
The right brain is imaginative, intuitive, creative, free and filled with never-ending ideas. The following activities will stimulate your right brain and encourage your creative spirit to evolve without any fear of “right, wrong or perfect.”
Jkalupqua. Ooklamun seplamadeena uttah kematulana?
Translation: “Excuse me. Where is the closest bathroom?”
It is your birthright to dream. In fact, you can create quite a revolution with that creative spirit of yours. Once you gain enough confidence, the sky is the limit. Fame and fortune may call you, and when it happens, I'll be standing in a long line waiting eagerly to get your autograph. I hope you'll notice me. I'm the one with the mismatched socks, silly hat, expressive clothes, creative earrings, an open heart, a cheering-for-you attitude, and a never-ending twinkle in her eyes. Here's to childlike curiosity, silliness, creativity, imagination and dreams!
