Help, my creative project feels too big. Now what?

Does your creative project feel too big for you? It’s probably because it IS too big for you to hold, right now. If this would be the reason not to embark on your creative journey; wait!

With these 3 steps you’ll make space for it in a way that feels authentic and right for you in this moment. You and your project will become friends even when it feels like you have no idea what you’re doing.

Creating makes you more human, because it’s exciting to create something that didn’t exist before you brought it into this world. It doesn’t matter how small or big your creation is.


You make YOUR art because it grows you as a human being. There are zero guarantees of fame, status, prosperity or understanding. You create because you must. You want to make art because you’re in love with making, even when it challenges you.

Here are 3 steps to help you get started:

Step 1: Start exploring. 

Your project calls on your heart to explore even when you have no idea where it’s taking you. Trust that your creative project has a vision that’s aligned with your gifts, challenges, desires and needs.

Step 2: Make a plan.

I know, this sounds as simple as it is. Simplify your project and cut it down into little chunks ( write for 10-minutes a day for example). My mantra is ¨poco a poco¨. Step by step. So start with one and than the next and so on.

Step 3: Get support.

Get clear on who your allies are and get them involved. Ask them to support you.

Yay, well done you! Remember to celebrate each and every step as creating takes you closer to your heart and soul.

I’d love to hear from you which creative project that feels too big you’d like to start. Please, let me know how these steps helped you in the process of creating. Leave a reply below or write to me!
