What's filling your life with gloom?

Everybody has things in their mind that brings them down. It may be that excess flab that just won't go away. It may be a friend who is anything but a friend. It may be a crummy job, the ogre of credit card debt.

We are all individuals and we each have our own bugbears to deal with. Sometimes you might feel you are the only one struggling through life, but that is simply not true. There are very few people who live the good life, day after day. Beautiful models get zits sometimes, just like the rest of us. The most beautifully groomed person can have an off day and just hunch around in an ugly grouch.

To rid yourself of these things, you need to look at life in a different way. If your friends are downers, start hanging out with people who have more fun. If that credit card debt is your problem, follow up on the many free help either online or with your financial institution (they don't bite).

Ignoring things will only ever work for a while, eventually you have to face up to things, and they may have grown in size as you hid from them. But if you can find a creative way to look at your problems, you'll win in more than just one way. Creativity opens up your mind and allows fresh light in. If you can solve a problem in a creative way, it makes you feel extra clever, because you worked it out in a special way, better than the mundane methods, whatever the creative method it is that you discover.

The best thing you can do is rid your life of these things that keep you stuck down in the dirt, that stop you from soaring above the crap that life wants to throw at you. If you can embrace creativity, you can find the life that works for you. It may not bring you wealth (it might though!), but it will bring you satisfaction and a sense of fun and wonder.

Embrace life, embrace your creativity!
