Welcome!

“I hate structure. I want freedom!” 

 

[Hi! if you’ve landed here this week, I’m playing with my site! this is how I create… sorry if it’s confusing… but poke around… or just email me! kelly (at) kellypratt.com!]

But creative entrepreneurs need systems, structure + personal rituals to support their creative lives…

Freedom is not the same thing as “free time.” Like a dog with a scent, one thing leads to another and another and another. You look back at the end of your day feeling unfulfilled, even anxious, about how you’ve spent your time. And, I’m willing to bet, you haven’t taken time to create.

Ephem·era  noun \i-ˈfe-mər-ə, -ˈfem-rə\  Items of collectible memorabilia that were meant to have only short-term usefulness such as tickets, bookmarks, greeting cards, letters, pamphlets, postcards, or posters.

Ephemera in its physical form is often useful to artists for their creative endeavors.  However “mental ephemera” can be extremely disSQ Work of Art-8x8tracting. But de-clutter your mind, your personal space and give yourself systems, structure + personal rituals and you’ll tame the mental ephemera and you miraculously begin to “find the time” to make your dreams a reality. Really!

Now that’s freedom!

You’d hire a personal trainer to help you change your body,
make the same investment in your life.

Does this sounds like you?

You work for yourself, have free time, but still don’t find the time to pursue your passion.

You used to love music. Now, you forget to turn it on.

You have too many should-dos and not enough get-to-dos.

You feel anxious when you think of all your little responsibilities, your “mental ephemera.”

You don’t write in your journal anymore or when you do, it’s full of angst and negativity.

You no longer feel the joy of creating.

You look in the mirror and don’t recognize yourself.

 

Time to find your Creative Rhythm.

Life gets in the way with all sorts of “mental ephemera” – the bits and pieces of responsibility and “shoulds” that we can’t seem to get away from.

By creating our own practices and rituals you’ll capture your “mental ephemera” – thoughts, dreams, get-to-dos and ideas – and are able to relax into your creative rhythm.

Unlock your true creative potential to make your life or business
more joyful, rewarding and abundant.

“I will walk you through a thought-provoking and creative process that will inspire you to maximize your personal and professional potential.   Long-buried dreams will become real again, hidden potential realized, and goals will become not only possible but attainable.
“Using inquiry, mind-maps, visual journaling and other creative tools, we will design systems, daily practices and personal rituals to create a vibrant abundant life with plenty of breathing space.”   — Kelly

My Philosophy

Create a life with plenty of white S. P. A. C. E. 

As a mentor, coach, and rebooter of mojo, I have one mission: 

To awaken you to your hidden potential and help you to find your true purpose in life.
And to bring a touch of poetry, music, laughter and inspiration while I do.

…to feeling like this!

I believe the idea of “balance” is a myth.

But that it’s entirely possible to find your unique creative rhythm, a symphony or integration of all that you love in your life. And a well-integrated life must have plenty of “white space.” (is this you?)

A designer leaves “white space” on a page to create simplicity and elegance.  Room for our minds to fill in the blanks –breathing more impact into the message.

Only by creating the same kind of “white space” in your life will you find your creativity and allow your True Nature to emerge. 

Creating S.P.A.C.E. means allowing time for Stillness and Play, creating Alignment with what jazzes you, making meaningful Connections and honoring your own Energetic cycles.
This will lead you to your essential self – your true nature.

By creating S.P.A.C.E. in your life, you’ll find your own creative rhythm… and be in step with your true nature.

Make time every day to:

  Write it down.

Write your schedule in your planner – this will solidify it in your mind. This makes it real. And schedule time for writing in your journal. Make it a habit.

  See it.

Visualize the life you desire. The more you see it in your mind’s eye, the more you’ll believe it’s possible.

  Pay attention.

Remind yourself everyday about what you have in your life. Oprah says “The single greatest thing you can do to change your life today would be to start being grateful for what you have right now. And the more grateful you are, the more you get.”

   Own It.

Look back at your day, take a breath and give yourself a gold star for what you’ve accomplished (big and small). Allow yourself to feel good about it!

At the end of each day think back and take inventory… have you had elements of SPACE in your day?
