Everyone can be CREATIVE!

On my earlier posts, I have defined what creativity is for me.

Yes, it takes courage to proclaim it but again I do believe that everyone can be creative. So, this time, I’d like you to relate more to it. That’s why in this blog post I’m sharing my thoughts on what a creative person is . . . or who are these creatives?

 

You are a creative if you are – – – 

  • an artist – of any form

  • a teacher

  • musician (singer, lyricist, guitarist, pianist and all other instruments)

  • poet

  • writer, novelist

  • DIY enthusiast

  • graphic designer

  • actor/actress

  • directors, costumes designers

  • painter

  • dj/vj

  • speaker

  • flower arranger

  • architect / engineer

  • copywriters

  • storytellers

  • ads creators (print,audio and video)

  • blogger /vlogger

  • fashion trendsetter, tailors, dressmakers/seamstress

  • event organizers

  • and the list goes on . . . ultimately, YOU are one!

Now — don’t worry if your creative pursuit (or profession) isn’t on this list because whatever you are into (creatively), you’re an artist of life. You are a creative no matter what!

A creative is an artist in any form of art. It’s not exclusive for musicians, writers or painters. Creatives are people who sees the world a little differently than others. S/he is an individual who may usually influence others not only through their personality but by the gifts and talents that are innate in them.

S/he is a thought leader. Sometimes s/he doesn’t know what s/he does. Very relatable right? 🙂 haha

So, what does a creative exactly do?

A creative CREATES. S/he creates something for the mere reason of personal pleasure. She writes just to write, he sings/dances just to feel the music within and just to be entwined with pure joy as the tone and rhythm goes around the whole room. She crafts ideas both made and not made yet.

 

So a creative creates whatever it is that he/she feels that the world calls him/her to create.

 

A creative follows and breaks the rules to accomplish what needs to be born.

With this definition, I know that once in our life we have that thrill and call to do something. To create something. Therefore I strongly believed that everyone can be creative!

And yes, you! You who are reading this — is a creative too! After all you won’t land to this page without that inkling that you are one. 🙂

What type of creative are you and how do you define what a creative is? Share it on the comment below.

 

Don’t let that creative light within you blinkers…

Go on and create! Create, create create! 🙂 

 

 

God bless

Big Bad Wolf Books UAE – VIP Pass

BigBadWolfBooks UAE - iamjmkayne VIP Day pass

Hey there book lovers!

The wolf has arrived in the UAE! Bringing us 3 million books to devour on. 🙂 On Oct 18 to 28,  Big Bad Wolf Books visits Dubai (UAE) at Dubai Studio City – Sound Stage Venue inside MBC building!

Sounds exciting right? Well, that excitement leveled up when I found myself winning a VIP Day pass giveaway! 😀

* * *

Now, let me share a few pros and cons in this experience:

JM Kayne in BigBadWoldBooks UAE - iamjmkayne.com
PROS
  • Open 24 hours!!!
  • Entrance is FREE!
  • We’re the first of the many people who could  get the first dibs of these amazing books. I guess they’ve given 1000 VIP Pass. But the place wasn’t full packed when we arrived, we were there around 8:30/9 PM.
  • They have an offer to share your blessings by donating on site. More details can be taken on the site itself. This caught my attention, because every time someone shares his/her blessing the whole crew claps their hands.
  • Membership booth is available, where in you can get further discounts on some of the books.
  • 50-80% Off on all book! Made me excited to see a Paulo Coelho book pack of 8 is only at 165 AED!!! OMG!!!
  • Accepts Cash, Debit & Credit card!
CONS
  • Books looked less than 3M. Or maybe because it’s just a pre-opening… The customer service said that more books are still on the way.
  • The books I wished to get were not on the list. But at least I get one that is really on my priority – that’s Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project
  • Personally, I don’t find the rows and arrangement properly set-up. I had a hard time navigating one stall to the other because it seemed un properly arranged.  Well, I’m giving them benefit of the doubt since it’s just the pre-opening. Hope they’ll manage to make it better.
  • Venue is a bit far, the good news is, you can still reach by metro, then taxi or bus. 😀 Stop @ Mall of Emirates metro – Ride Bus F30.

 

Anyway, I still have 10 days to check the book haven more. Let me update this post by then! 🙂

Updated Podcast List for 2018

JM Kayne’s updated list of Podcast for 2018

2018 updated Podcasts List - iamjmkayne.com

It’s time to update my list! In 2017, I shared this list of my top 5 favorite podcasts and this year, more podcasts have taken my attention. Here are new discoveries this 2018.

Read on!

 

🎙Magic Lessons by Elizabeth Gilbert

Yay!! She’s my favorite writer. And no, not because of Eat Pray Love, but because of BIG MAGIC (Book). Everything inside it and all related to her idea of creativity just resonates the inner me. She speaks my truth in this book that I am totally in love with it. Also since I started binging her videos and books, I also landed in this podcasts where she explores more about this idea of a creative genius and more magic lessons!

 

 

🎙Marie Forleo Podcast

I learned about Marie because of Lavendaire. She’s my current #HowToBeYou po for business. She talks about business and other creative endeavors. Also interviews big time thought leaders. Her style is just refreshing!

 

🎙Lavendaire by Aileen Xu

Aileen is another creative inspiration. Her Youtube channel motivates me and her personality is just nice. Her ideas resonates mine and I see myself in her. She talks about being an Artist of Life , self-care and more.

 

 

🎙IDEO U – Creative Confidence

In my quest for Creativity, I happened to learned about Design thinking with Arriane Serafico of The Purposeful Creative (her podcast is on my 2017 list). I started to browse about IDEO and I hope to get a chance to enroll one of their courses someday.

 

 

🎙Design Matters by Debbie Milman

This is a little bit higher level of creativity and design. I am honestly overwhelmed with the guests and the topics but I still enjoy listening to these topics because it explores so much about creativity and different types of artists. I am taking them one time at a time. hihi

 

 

🎙Binge Mode 

Because I love Game of Thrones, I enjoyed this podcast! Although I have done watching all 7 seasons and now anticipating for the last season, it is so much fun to recall them one by one in each of the episode that Mallory Rubin and Jason Concepcion tackles them and also helps me to understand more on some parts that I missed. They’ve done all 7 seasons and now they are on to the next movie – Harry Potter! 😀 

 

 

🎙Our Food Adventures

This couple is just fun to be with! I know, because I have been on their website… Last April I was so thrilled to share my very first podcast interview with Tiara and Chris! They interview different people from different part of the globe and talks about the must sees and eat! 🙂 Mine was about Cebu Philippines.

 

 

🎙By the Book

(not on the photos above)

In this podcast, you get to hear their personal take on Self-Help Books. The Pros and Cons of it and if they will recommend it or not. Well, the first book they’ve taken? The Secret! 🙂

My Creative Mantra

TCP Calendar 2019

I have been following Lavendaire (Aileen Xu) for almost 6 months now and she is definitely inspiring me to be creative (among others). As I continue to follow her – I happen to bumped into her mini-activity of creating a Creative Mantra; an affirmation about who I am as a creative.

So here is my declaration!

quote green - iamjmkayne.com

I am creative.

I am passionate and worthy to share my talent and skills to the world.

I am confident of being God’s creation, therefore I know I am special.

I am destined for greatness.

#DivineSpark
#TalentsForHim
#DestinedForGreatness

 

Creative Mantra is your personal declaration of who you are as a creative individual. It is your creative manifesto. A declaration (published and verbal) of your intentions, motives, views on creativity – on creating anything. Your affirmation to create, create and create! And as my writing hero – Elizabeth Gilbert asks: Who gets to decide if you are creative? (a legitimate artist) – no one but YOU!

 

So go ahead, have your own manifesto. What’s your #CreativeMantra?

 

Share it on the comment section below 🙂

 

God bless,
