Welcome to August. It is a very significant month for me, mostly because I’m born in it! 🙂 This August, I’ve decided to go all out with my blog and pledge to write here every day!
Creativity Takes Courage
Yes, it does. But I’m trying to be brave. I’ve signed up with a group of bloggers to be a Write Tribe Pro Blogger. Notice the lovely badge on my sidebar? If you’re a blogger, and a brave one, do join us. You can sign up here.
You’re going to wonder where all my resolutions to slow down have gone. I’m slowing down while focusing on what matters to me. Nurturing my creativity is certainly high on my list of things to do.
In his book The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Achor uses the ancient Greeks’ definition of happiness: “the joy you feel striving toward your potential.” Pledging to write every day is a big step towards increasing my happiness quotient, for I’m striving towards my potential.
I don’t fool myself. I’m not a fantastic writer. But I want to be the best I can be. I need to share the stories within me. I take courage in this:
Even a seemingly tiny story can travel great distances and deeply affect other people. Your stories matter. Let them out to affect other souls. ~ SARK
Earlier this week, I asked you ‘What Would You Do If You Weren’t Afraid?’. For me, writing every day is one of the answers. What’s yours?
Be creative. Be brave!
Good girl! I think you are a terrific writer and I am very glad you decided to do this! I am sure we are all going to ace it!

The more you write, the better your writing, no matter where you begin. Good luck with blogging each day!

You are an amazing writer, Corinne. It’s a post full of positive energy and writing everyday helps. I need to sign up, too:)
I would do sky jumping or bungee jumping 🙂 writing daily is equally scary and tough but I am going to do it. I am brave, like the other Write Tribe Pro Bloggers 🙂
I am looking forward to read your posts which are a store-house of positivity and gyaan.
I have signed for Write Tribe Pro Bloggers and I think I am brave.

Your posts are always very creative. This one is motivating.I was inspired by your post and filled the form without even a second thought. I hope I will be able to manage writing a post everyday.
Oh, yes, writing every day with courage and conviction. That’s my ticket, too! Corinne, don’t ever sell yourself short as a writer – you are ingenious and creative in all your posts, and writing with regularity will only improve your skills and bring you even more joy!
Blessings, my friend!

Hey, I’m an Aug born too 🙂 🙂 Yay us!
And, I now know the answer to your previous ques – I would write everyday if I weren’t afraid. I’m travelling this month, but will surely sign up for Pro Blogger in Sep! Hope that will be okay!

Don’t I know it! You and Vidya just pushed me to sign up for this. But, bright side, it’s day 5 and I am going strong. Let’s see how long this lasts 🙂 Good luck to you, Corinne. I love the quote on how a story can travel great distances and affect others. Beautiful <3
