Rita Long #CreativeLife

Today our Supper on Sunday was a big, delicious, outrageously yummy brunch of bacon, sausage, and blueberry waffles.  Two grandsons were here and they are teens, hence the brunch instead of the breakfast, as they sleep late these days! But the real message of today was The Art of Trying to Fix Things.  We’ve lived […]

Creativity, Clouds & Courage

Rita Long #CreativeLife, 10 Little Rules

Several people who are reading my new book, 10 Little Rules For Your Creative Soul,  have asked me to explain further what I think creativity really means.  I love getting questions like this because without awareness, change and growth can not happen.  It means we are asking ourselves an important question…”How do I get unstuck?” […]

Courage before Confidence

Carol Pearson #BlissyLife, #CreativeLife, 10 Little Rules

“Creativity takes courage.” Those words from artist Henri Matisse ring so true, and not just to professional artists or creators. “We all want to be confident. Being confident is the coolest,” writes Rita Long in her book 10 Little Rules for Your Creative Soul. Yet fear so often blocks our path, making us second guess […]

Fill what is empty…

Carol Pearson #CreativeLife, 10 Little Rules

This beautiful new painting from Rita Long Art seems like the perfect backdrop for this quote. Originally credited to Alice Roosevelt Longworth, I heard it this morning in a Chopra meditation with David G. Fill what is empty, and empty what is full. Such simple words and so very powerful.

Here’s to the Lucky Ones

Carol Pearson #BlissyLife, #CreativeLife, 10 Little Rules

We are still the lucky ones…the ones who can publicly disagree, say whatever we want to when wishing someone holiday greetings, give gifts…or not…be Scrooge…or not…. We are the lucky ones because we are living, breathing, alive today and able to make our own choices about how we move through this life. Be your own […]

Anger, Fear, Frustration Speak Without Words

Rita Long #CreativeLife, 10 Little Rules

I sit…starting my meditation, looking out at the Sea…from the 9th floor.  I love this.  The roaring of the weaves that quiet my mind,  the smell of the salt water and humidity in the air,  the cool morning breeze just out of the hot rays of the sun. Watching how people handle fear and disappointment […]

“I am not my mistakes.”

Rita Long #CreativeLife, 10 Little Rules

What happens when you sit in a room with 350 people from all over the world?  We nod polite hellos in the hall but mainly pay attention to the program leaders for our own personal learning and growth.  At the end of Day 2, we are in small groups of 10, and we are strangers to one […]
