Do you want to live a fully creative life?
I’m Melissa Dinwiddie, unrepentant multi-faceted Creative and Passion Pluralite, and this site is my project to change the world.
I believe human beings are meant to express our creativity. It’s what we’re here for, what makes us feel alive.
If you’re at all like me, perhaps you’ve struggled with denying yourself the creative passions you’re hungry for, believing that self-expression equaled self-indulgence.
Or that you “don’t deserve to create.”
Or that there simply isn’t time for it.
In my own life, I spent over a decade starving my creative self. Ironically, I built up a business from my art, but only created to the specifications of paying clients, never to feed my own soul.
It took years of low-grade misery (you know what I’m talking about) for me to figure out that what makes me happiest is being creative – actively creating. And teaching/encouraging/inspiring others to do the same.
Since you’re here, I’m guessing the idea of living a creative life grabs you, too.
Here’s what I’ve learned:
In my time on this planet I’ve learned that my expression is divine. Your expression is divine. The Universe wants and needs us to create, and to share our creations with the world.
And that, dear reader, is my big dream and passion in life: I want to see YOU using your creative gifts.
In truth, I want to see everyone on the the entire planet using their creative gifts! THAT would be a changed world, indeed!
(Can you imagine it?)
It just so happens that I have a pair of X-ray vision goggles (kinda like night vision goggles) that allow me to see the doorways through the walls that keep you hemmed in and not following your own creative Blisses.
The goal: to get you sparked, stoked and creating!
I’m here to charge you up, sweetheart – online (here, and in my Creative Ignition Club), in person (did I mention I lead retreats and workshops around the world?), in groups and as a duet (1:1 coaching is da bomb).
In the meantime, you can read more about me and my bumpy relationship with my own identity as a Creative right here.
You can connect with me at the Twitter bar, on Facebook and Pinterest. And sign up below to get regular fiery dispatches. You’ll also get my popular 7-day course, Creative Sandbox 101, to help you kickstart your creativity with the power of play.
Now go get creating!
