Create {Series: insights from #GIRLBOSS}

Happy New Year!!


I hope that 2016 is full of wonderful adventures and growth for all of you.

I’ve recently read #GIRLBOSS, a book written by Sophia Amoroso, self-discovered entrepreneur and creative.

 It is mostly her story, but there are a number of thought-provoking tidbits that I’ll share in a short series here on Where the BlueBoots Go. I hope they’ll be helpful on your own journey!

CREATE.

This is the word I’ll highlight for this post.

This passage demonstrates the spirit of the book, and I feel it is important to share first, although it is nearly the last page of her book. These aren’t how-tos or to-dos, but rather, her experience and her advice, which, she is perfectly okay with readers disagreeing with and not taking.

Now whenever I’m faced with improbable situations, I remind myself that if I really want something badly enough, I have it within myself to make it happen. My entire path is littered with my defying every piece of advice I’ve ever been given. I’m giving you carte blanche to pick and choose from the advice outlined in this book. ….ignore it all if you want. But don’t ignore this: You create the world, blink by blink. It is entirely yours to discover and yours to create. (236)

What do you think? Discover and Create.

 I love this take on Creativity in Chapter 10:

“Every child is an artist. The problem is staying an artist when you grow up.” Pablo Picasso.

Readers, for you, I hope for growth this year, but with growth, the view of a child facing a new world so that you may retain the artistry and creativity needed to inject fresh life into your daily adventures. As Chef Gordon Ramsey often says, “Keep your head held up high!” and explore without abandon.
