About Me Creative Calm Connected

Hi! I’m so happy you found me here.

My name is Emma and I’m trying to live a more creative, calm and connected life.  This website is my place to share ideas with you about things you might enjoy too.  It’s a place for me to try different things, share my thoughts and create a community where we can support each other to be the best we can be.

So how did I get here?

I have always been someone who strives to get the best out of myself, and I’m interested in self development and improvement.  A couple of years ago, I discovered Danielle LaPorte’s book The Desire Map.  LaPorte’s book took me on a journey to look outside of the usual goal setting paradigm and into how I wanted to feel in my every day life.  I discovered that I wanted to feel creative, calm and connected every day. These are the feelings that make me feel alive.

When I am creative, I get inspired and have a great sense of accomplishment.  I like to imagine and dream, and being creative allows some of that out of my body and into the real world.

I yearn to feel calm.  A sense of peace where I can perform at my best.  When I am calm I am a much nicer Mum, wife, friend and colleague.

I want to feel connected.  To myself, to others and to something bigger than all of us.  I feel that connection is the biggest key to living a happy and meaningful life.

This blog was my way of bringing a little more creative  into my life.  I also hope it brings a little more connection as we get to know a little more about each other and develop a sense of community.  I hope you enjoy your time reading here xx
