I am sure we all have a different take on what one text – in this case a play – mean depending on our previous experiences and beliefs of life. Others may have different thoughts on this play. Here comes mine.

I was very young when I read this play and I completely fell in love with it. All through the years I kept on loving it and never forgetting about it. We can say it had an impact on me. At that time, during my university years, I don’t think I knew what it was that caught me and stayed with me all this time.

After reading the first few lines of the play – you can read above – suddenly the feeling I felt while reading it the first time returned. I fell in love again, not only with the play, but the feeling the joy of creativity – that there is no limit to what we can ‘have’, feel or experience. I realized that this is how I would like to live my life, not only my love life but my entire life – full of joy and creativity under all circumstances!

Often, we think that our quality of life would be different if we had this or that instead of what we have right now. I decide what I do with what I have. I decide how to make the best of my life. I take full responsibility and make my life work; I create the life I want to live under all circumstances – I create a patchwork of life out of the materials I am provided with, instead of complaining about not having the right material.

Nobody is provided with all the ‘material’ we wish for ourselves in order to create the ‘perfect’ life we want still we can use our creativity to get the best out of what we have. And I think there are some really amazing people out there who just did that!

Creativity coaching

What do you get out of creativity coaching?
A Life that is worth Living.

More in detail, what I can offer is to support you to

  • notice the space around yourself
  • extend this space by moving your borders and boundaries beyond where they are now
  • make creative thinking appear in your everyday life and work to support you in living more successfully, with greater depth and more passion

“Of all human activities, creativity comes
closest to providing the fulfilment
we all hope to get in our lives.
Call it full-blast living.”
Mihaly Csikszentmihaly
