Last week, the Writers’ Community of York Region presented Mindshift Ninja and “Motivating the Creative Mind.” This workshop helped me define who I am as a writer and the reason I write. Being able to articulate my personal and professional goals, and how I am inspired to meet them, made me aware of practical applications for my writing coupled with my emotional drive to put pen to paper. Goal setting can be a daunting task when you place it on a timeline, and the growth Mindshift Ninja presented in this workshop assisted me in building an intentional framework to support a natural cycle of creativity that honours all the stages of an endeavour. Self-awareness illuminates our path toward self-actualization, the peak of Mazlow’s hierarchy of needs. Being given the opportunity for self-reflection is a rare gift of dedicated time carved out of our hectic lives. It has been humbling to experience how investment in one’s self returns sevenfold.
Coming in February: Author Platform Workshop with MJ Moores — a free members-only event.
