Here we are friends, our last day of our Days of Possible mini ecourse. And this prompt is definitely one of my favourites, and one to grab with both hands as a good habit for 2016.
I’m a big believer in creative dates. Whether alone or with a creative friend, booking in time to let your creativity soar and gather inspiration is so important for your wellbeing and overall productivity, no matter what you do. Get out from in front of a screen, go those places you’ve wanted to discover in your city and reboot your creative soul for a fresh burst of new year inspiration.
Last year my family became members of the National Gallery of Victoria. Now we have regular family creative date of riding our bikes into the city, having a cup of tea in the member’s lounge and wandering the mind blowing spaces the gallery has to offer. But sometimes, I could just hide out at a bookshop for an hour or so, try a new recipe I’ve been coveting, take a long bath with a great novel, take a walk my camera, or finally make time to head to that place I’ve wanted to get to. Creative dates have saved my sanity, filled up my well and allowed my mind to consider new possibilities (in fact, the idea for Days of Possible came on a drive to Lorne a few years ago… and now it’s slowly coming to life).
Let this downloadable inspire you to take time out really detox and reboot – to let your imagination fly, to try new things and to declutter your life – mentally and physically – to start your year (and continue onwards) with a fresh mind.
The only unique contribution that we will ever make in this world will be born of our creativity. – Brené Brown

Love and leaping,
There are five downloadable templates for you and your Days of Possible Diary (or your own diary/journal). Print them out and stick them into your diary, or write the questions onto your pages and let them prompt big thoughts to scribble, mindmap, list or draw. Go your own way – these are here to remind that you every day, anything is possible. Keep an eye out – there’ll be more to come throughout the year.
