I believe we all have a deep passion for life and living, and we can all make art with our lives. It’s something incredible to experience: knowing that we are here on this earth to create and to explore this creativity as we discover ourselves and our higher purposes.
I want this blog to reflect this mindset.
As you might be aware, there have been a number of small changes made on my blog over this past summer. That has been a result from my many hours of thinking, planning, dreaming and reflecting over this space, trying to focus on its direction. I’ve tweaked the design, finally rewrote my About Me page, began to post regularly, developed a weekend series and researched so many things about blogging. I read Blog Inc. by Joy Deangdeelert Cho, and learned more about defining your blog’s purpose, goals and strategy.
Ultimately, I wanted to create a tagline and mission for my blog to define its direction. That has been quite the process, with brainstorming words, names and phrases to create the sentiment I envisioned. After many talks with different friends (who have been so awesome!), I came upon a decision.
Welcome to Gina Alyse, Fuel For Your Creative Calling
I realized my favorite topics to write about on my blog are traveling, creativity, lifestyle topics and college. In combining them all, I boiled down to two basic ideas: adventure and creativity.
I want to inspire you all to expand your creative side and your adventurous spirit all in one place. Creativity is all about exploring beyond borders, and I want us to be able to live like we create. Let’s create adventure and dive deeper into a world where creativity in its purest forms runs deep in our veins and encourages us to go the extra marathon, take a step of faith and take us away on an adventure we never imagined.
Something magical happens when we combine creativity and adventure. It can help us realize our calling. No matter if you are a doctor, a student, a volunteer, an artist, an athlete or scientist, we are all here to create art and beauty in the world. At the basis of life is the art we are called to create that stirs our soul and helps us connect with others in the world.
We all have visions and dreams, even if we don’t know what they are quite yet. It may be starting a business, traveling the world, going to grad school or starting a family. In the end, we all have a calling to be the best we are to be. And I hope through a little bit of creativity and exploration, we can all come together to celebrate the creative life–in the many ways it shines.
Welcome to your fuel for your creative calling. With my upcoming posts, I hope to inspire your life as a college student, global citizen, graphic designer, business owner, athlete, traveler or learner. I hope I can inspire you to find your higher purpose and focus in your life by simplifying the distractions and leading a life that brightens your soul.
This is my blog. This is my hope. And this is our story.
