Here are a few suggestions from Melyssa Griffin on how she enhances her creative side. You’ve probably tried most or all of these, but they serve as worthy reminders.
From a creative standpoint, how will life be different a year from now?
In her YouTube video, Creative Reinvention: The Power to Choose, Elaine Shelly says, “‘Choosing’ is saying yes to that nagging voice, it’s saying yes to your dreams and goals.”

Until tonight, I had not opened this newsletter. My wife had forwarded it to me the same month I left my job almost two years ago. Just one of those emails that slipped by.
I hope the quote nudges my fellow retirees forward in your creative pursuits. [Note: I posted this in my other blog –the mark of a good quote.]
If you believe it’s time to give that creative calling inside of you a shot, honor it in some really small way today.
Start by asking “What do I love about my creative passion?” and “What one really small thing I can do to get started?”
Just asking these questions, even without having an answer, will begin to shift your energy toward the thoughts and actions that make it easier to get to your passion.
Once you light that fire, you will shine so brightly, there’s a chance one or two souls will stop their bickering and be inspired to do the same–you will be a catalyst of creative passion. — Jill Badonsky
