16: Creating the lives we want, one small step at a time
If you feel creatively blocked or deprived, this episode may inspire you to take stock and chase your creative desires. Choosing to leave your lucrative banking career to follow your dream at drama school, alongside having two small children, seems pretty crazy but for Esther Wane it was the best thing she ever did.
Creativity can be hard to identify with, or at times feel way out of reach. Today's guest, creative coach and storyteller, Esther Wane helps to unlock that sense of creation and purpose within people.
Esther's soul searching began following a difficult emotional time after having her children and leaving her corporate job. She then began following her own purpose and training as an actor after leaving her corporate career gave Esther what her daughter described as a "glow-up".
During this episode, Kate and Esther talk more about:
🔑 It's about those small choices you make to reach your purpose
🔑 Ask what do I want to do next?
🔑 Giving up self-doubt for over a year - and how that led her to a successful blog
🔑 The harder and darker experiences of motherhood
🔑 The concept of "The Creative Hero’s Journey"
🔑 Living life as your heroic self and moving past obstacles that prevent you from living a life more aligned to a purpose
🔑 How we grow and learn as humans in small yet monumental ways
🔑 Allowing creativity to flow in all areas of your life - not just through art
🔑 How creativity pops in when we have quieter minds, such as driving or in the shower - notice these moments
🔑 If we stop for long enough, we do know more than we think - we don't need to know the whole journey, just the next step
🔑 The joy is in the process and making conscious choices along the way
🔑 Living authentically can make the process fun, without always focussing on the outcome
🔑 Learning on the job, honing in on the joy and the 'why' and trying not to focus on the how
🔑 Notice who and what inspires you
🔑 Gratitude and what genuinely matters to us
🔑 Use your vision board with intent, but without specifics
🔑 Using meditation, however that looks like to you
