You are enough, even without any of the things on this page. You don’t need to buy more to be more. Not at all. I do think that useful tools can make life simpler, though, so I’m sharing some of my favorites with you here.
Find yourself, clear your mind, and do your own thing.
When you purchase any of these titles, you’ll get a ZIP file containing MOBI, EPUB, and PDF versions so you can read however you please.
Find Yourself, Free Yourself Extra, $4.99
Ready to get back in touch with your best self?
Find Yourself, Free Yourself Extra includes five lessons on slowing down, listening the voice inside, and figuring out who you really are–plus troubleshooting help so you don’t get stuck, and answers to readers’ most commonly asked questions.
Do Your Thing, $9.99
Everyone wants to know how to do it all.
But what if you don’t have to do it all? What if the more important question is, What are you meant to do? It’s possible to live a life more full of meaning, and less full of busy. I’ll show you how.
Practices for more joyful, creative living.
There’s so much going on in your head, there’s hardly room to think. I get it. It’s time to quiet the noise so you can focus, be present, and get down to creative flourishing.
Or Get All Three!
Because once you get started, you might just want them all. Get MOBI, EPUB, and PDF versions of all three titles bundled together for $19.97. (Yup, that’s $5 less than buying them individually. Because no one wants to do math right now.)
Some Things That Are Not Ebooks
All the links below this take you directly to Amazon, and I earn a small commission on anything you order. Enjoy!
A few goods to get the creative juices flowing.
Plants Are Your Friend
Green things are anxiety-reducing and creativity-inducing (according to science! and me!) and succulents survive in spite of me. Maybe just google “succulent nursery” and “your town” though, see if you can pick some out in person.
Himalayan Salt Lamps
Apparently these fancy mineral salt lamps clean your air. Who knew? The orange glow wakes up my creative brain, so I keep two of these on my desk for early mornings and sleepy afternoons.
Beeswax Tea Lights
Mug of Wisdom
Caffeine, Creativity, Conquer Mug
I don’t own this mug, I just wholeheartedly approve its message. Though I would add chocolate. Caffeine, creativity, chocolate, conquer. Caffeine, creativity, conquer, chocolate? I admit it doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.
A few useful supplies for living creatively.
I keep these in my purse or pocket for notes-on-the-go. I know there’s an app for that, but there’s just something about pen and paper. Plus I like to pretend I might doodle artistically on those kraft paper covers. (I won’t. BUT I COULD.)
When I’m not on-the-go, I need more than a pocket-sized space for writing. I take a plain artist’s sketchbook, glue a piece of gorgeous paper over the cover, and bam: custom journal.
Black Gel Pens
Papermate Flair Pens
We don’t think in black and white, so we’re going to need some need color. These felt-tipped pens write like a dream in my little notebooks. Not too thick, not too thin, and twenty colors to choose from.
Mini Index Cards
Half-Size Lined Index Cards
I used to use index cards for organizing projects, but I love these half-sized cards approximately a million times more. They’re just the right size for one idea with no room for nonsense.
Writing & Creative Living
Inspiration for whatever you need to make.
By Elizabeth Gilbert
Creativity is both sacred and not sacred at all, and it always matters. This is your permission slip for everyday creative living. As I read it, I had to keep stopping so I could text my sister all the best lines. I am sure she appreciated that.
The Art of Asking
by Amanda Palmer
Amanda Palmer has so much to teach us about vulnerability, community, asking for what you need, and learning to truly see people. (And also about being a street performer, a touring musician, and/or married to Neil Gaiman. This is a memoir, after all.)
The Creative Habit
By Twyla Tharp
Remember that thing I said about waking up my creative brain? (See: salt lamps.) This book will teach you to develop your own simple practices to get your creative juices flowing when you need them.
The War of Art
Thoughts on how to live a wholehearted, flourishing life.
By Brene Brown
It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to those in the arena, the ones who practice authenticity and vulnerability, and who–if they fail–at least fail while daring greatly. (Apologies to Theodore Roosevelt, whose quote we just chewed up.) Learn to dare, my friends.
Carry On, Warrior
Be brave. Be kind. Love wins. CARRY ON, WARRIOR.
