Try a little nonsense

dr-seussOne of the most meaningful messages I took away this New Years Eve I learned at an exhibit of Dr. Seuss’ life work. Dr. Seuss, you say, really? How did Dr. Seuss fuel my new years resolution? It’s a simple message really – Dr. Theodor Seuss Geisel (known by most as Dr. Seuss) said, and I paraphrase,

“We all need to have a little nonsense in our daily life.”

That resonates for me because I realize that I have had such tunnel vision for so many years, working and supporting clients and family that I have forgotten how a little silliness can go a long way to happiness AND fuel my creativity. That small message provided a huge shift for me.

In this time of change for many of us, opening ourselves up to what is possible has to begin with making room for ideas, and that comes from allowing creativity to have a bigger space in our being.

So, if I may offer you one small wish for the New Year, allow for a little nonsense each day. Even if it’s only for five minutes!
