You must have seen it on social networks, Instagram, Facebook, Youtube we found new passions!
Drawings, cooking, painting, sewing (our favorite), creativity seems to have knocked on the doors of many of us
We take advantage of this slowed down time to redouble our inventiveness, and that's cool!
However, if creating is an almost assured source of wholeness, we know that there are still some reluctant among you to jump into the deep end of doityourself.
This is why we have gathered a few points not to be overlooked during this new confinement in order to always remain optimistic and creative
1) YOU NEVER SUCCEED THE FIRST STROKE
Creativity is not simply having an idea, but putting it into practice, trying, making mistakes, "going back" and then achieving your ends. Therefore, we strongly advise you not to succeed the first time, the reward n it will be all the more rewarding.
Moreover, are we not in the ideal period for proofreading? What if we had the good idea to no longer say "make a mistake" but "learn"?
From now on we will fear failure and we will feed off it.
2) IN 2020 WE FIND ITS INSPIRATION ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Well this time around Instagram didn't tell us that our friends are on vacation halfway around the world while we're at the office. There is no one luckier than the others, we are all in the same boat.
Of course, we don't walk around anymore, the exhibitions are closed, but is that blocking communication? Obviously not!
Let's redouble the exchange of ideas, Visio calls, live performances offered by My Little Coupon (humor), let's sharpen our curiosity.
Today everything is available on the internet in order to continue to flourish through our passions and our new passions (sewing)
Let's set goals with friends, together it's always easier
3)RELATIVIZE THE ROUTINE
It's not like you've never been bored before! This time, we just have more choice, we have to reinvent ourselves. Confinement now offers us the opportunity to develop our artistic sensibilities and increase our attention to detail because it is calmer, away from the frantic rush towards a goal that is always a little vague.
Whatever motivates us on a daily basis, the world today gives us the opportunity to reframe what could then not simply make us survive but vibrate from this new deconfinement.
Lastly, the most important point, let's continue to be extra careful in the face of the pandemic, keep our morale up and above all
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND YOUR LOVERS ❤️
