I know you think you can't draw, but you really, really can! Most of us stopped drawing in elementary school, and so that's where our skill level remains. But don't worry! Cut out the self-judgement, start with some basic shapes, practice, and you'll be amazed at what you can achieve.

Setting your price can be tough, but you really do need to ask for what you're worth! To get yourself over your hump, think about what you're really worth, and then DOUBLE that number. It's the only way to get you over your fear, to a place where you are earning your true worth. #CreativeGeniusYOU

Mindfulness can be a little bit like going to the gym. It sounds like a great idea, it's great while you're doing it, but actually getting around to do it is a huge challenge. Why not try Lazy Mindfulness? It's an awesome way to enjoy the world around you.

This month we had the absolute pleasure of interviewing creative genius Kelly McCormick. Kelly is the highly creative chef behind Sushi Love, a delicious, all vegan sushi cart in Belmont (2623 SE Belmont St.) We sat down to ask him how he got into it, and how he makes his rolls. It was a rainy day so we interviewed Kelly in my kitchen, but made sure to get back out to the food cart ASAP to taste some of the incredible sushi he makes!

Don't let summer pass you by. Take a break, get out there, and soak up some sunshine. Resting and enjoying yourself will give your creative genius a chance to reboot.

If there's something bugging you this week, no matter how small it is, do something about it. Don't wait for somebody else to fix it, do it yourself and reap the rewards!

This week, set out to give more than you get. Hold the elevator, buy that sad looking person a coffee, pet a lonely dog, compliment your neighbor, put LOVE out into the world and watch it multiply. ‪#‎LovingGeniusYOU‬
