Discovery is about exploration. Exploration is about allowing the unknown to be revealed. Moulting is the shedding of an outer layer to allow a new, fresh layer to thrive.

Yes, our lives get driven into ruts and our routines get repetitive. Often we think the only way we can escape this dullness is to dive deep into the digital reality of our laptops and phones.

Doesn't this harden the shell around us?

I suggest that we shed that skin from time to time. Instead of looking into a tiny screen, lift your eyes and look straight out. Start training your eyes to see the subtleties that exist. Your world is more magical than you think.

I challenge you: look away from your computer/phone/ipad right now. Focus on something nearby. Give yourself a moment to see something completely different about it. If this is easy, I'd love to read what you see. Comment below or send me an email. If this is way too hard, give me a chance to help guide your eye. Don't give up. You are born with a creative spirit. It's in you just waiting to come out.
