Read the Artist's Way

We are all creative beings. When I first saw The Artist’s Way on the shelf of my favourite bookstore years ago when I was still practicing law, I did not pick it up. At that time, I believed it was only for “artists” and that I would, therefore not benefit from it. Over time, however, I realised that every single one of us has an almost limitless wellspring of creativity deep within us. And we all need to use this creativity on a daily basis to get the most from life, whether we are lawyers, homemakers, teachers, business executives, poets or musicians. The realisation that I, as a lawyer, was a creative being created a whole new awareness for me.

I started to attend seminars on creativity. I also read more books on the subject and searched for ways I could express this natural creativity to improve the way that I live personally, professionally and spiritually. Eventually, my search led me to write my first book.

Read The Artist’s Way and have the self - discipline to go through each of the thoughtful exercises the author Julia Cameron, suggests you do. Unlocking your creative spirit will fuel your upward path of self-discovery and make every single one of your days far more fulfilling.
