There are only 42 days until Christmas, can you believe that? Where does the year go?
It seems that every month I find myself asking where has my time gone. Lately I’ve been feeling like I haven’t been making good use of my time. I’ve been so unmotivated and tired all the time.
Lots of reasons have lead me to this, the recent move , the new job, plus I recently discovered I have a vitamin D deficiency, which could be causing me to be tired more than other people.
Whatever the cause is I’ve been hating it. I’m a creative person and I’m only really happy when I’m working on creative projects and life right now doesn’t give me the opportunity to do that.
A few days ago it was Hedy Lamarr’s 100th Birthday. If you are unfamiliar with Ms Lamarr, she was not only a talented actress but also an inventor. Hedy along with composer George Antheil, drafted designs for a new frequency-hopping spread-spectrum technology which they later patented. The principles of their work are now incorporated into modern Wi-Fi, CDMA and Bluetooth technology.
Hedy’s story shows that creative people are often creative in many fields, even if they are only known for one. There is a quote by Hedy stating , “All creative people want to do the unexpected.” Then it hit me, that’s what my creative self has been missing, the unexpected!
I’ve been for far too long doing what everyone thought I should be doing or what I’m good at. Yet, there is so much more to me. Thus, I’m going to now focus on doing the unexpected. That’s what 2016 will be about, for me. I’m going to take a leap of faith and do something that I’ve longed to do for quite a while, but my practical self kept me from doing it.
I’m really only at the planning stage, but I will be focusing on this moving on into next year. It probably however, won’t be until summer before I can really reveal any details, but I’m excited and hope that you guys, my readers will be as well!
Wish me luck with this idea of doing the unexpected and maybe consider doing the unexpected yourself.
