It was the first time in a year I had natural light in my bedroom; my last apartment had no windows. I was in such an open space and, yet, I felt blocked. "I think I'm writing two different books." . I'm finally sharing my book writing journey, starting with this post — link in bio 🙌 Through my conversations with others, see the progression of an idea into the full-blown theme of my #book on #creativity and #entrepreneurship, personal value, and #happiness.

Happy holidays 👏 I’m adorable 💁‍♀️ New press link in bio, thanks to @joinnextgen and the whole Next Gen #community! As I work on my book, I’m working on myself, too. I’ve fully realized my calling: teaching. I can’t wait to share all I’ve been doing, creating and planning to share with — and for — you all. 💜 . #geenamatuson #headshot #entrepreneur #coach #consultant #branding #happiness #alignment #findyourvalue #purple #beauty #communicate #spotlight

Due to my new job, I take a bus to work. Today, my bus driver started a conversion with me. Turns out he’s also a #writer, but feels like he’s not coherent; he struggles to communicate what he’s feeling — his truth — into words he feels others can understand. He’s trying to connect with himself so he can connect with others, but it’s hard! I know the feeling all too well, and it reminded me of my friend @daveursillo, #writer and #coach 🙌 So many stories, tips, ideas. . When I get stuck, I go back to the beginning of my writing and ask myself if I’ve defined the very words off which I’m building my points. “Nope” is usually the answer. I take time to define them by looking to prescribed meanings and then build off those with my own thoughts. It opens me up to clarifying my points and, often, feelings — my truth. Our #truth. 🙌 My driver asked if I coach and I gave him my card. I’m starting to see my value and how I can help others #communicate theirs 💛 New blog post about connectivity, link in bio 👆 . #geenamatuson #author #createpossibility #createframework #writingcoach #writertips #storytelling #connection #relationships #redhair #selfie

One of our neurological needs is that of social connection. In fact, without those social connections from birth, we would die; we wouldn’t be able to fulfill our other needs of food and water, warmth, or the security to close our eyes and rest. This means that our bodies are wired to first seek connection in order to provide for our other needs. When these internal and external needs are met and satisfied, we are happy. In this way, happiness is like a scale; we are happy when we are in balance. 🙌 Link in bio for more! . With my forthcoming ‪#book‬, I focus on ‪#creativity‬ and creating ‪#connections‬ in order to be happy. . ‪#geenamatuson #createframework‬ ‪#createpossibility‬ ‪#wellness‬ ‪#mindfulness‬ ‪#relationships #bridge #architecture #author #storytelling #social‬

Thanks to @nextgenhq for the spotlight, link in bio 🙌 . This is the first press I've received with a focus on my forthcoming book "The Possibility System” with insight into my CREATE Framework. Take a look at some of my advice and thoughts on #value, and using your #creativity to make connections. . #geenamatuson #createpossibility #possibilitysystem #systems #happiness #creativity #entrepreneurship #connection #friendship #values #press #nextgen #coach #brandconsultant #speaker #identity #author #book #communication #createframework #entrepreneur #startupcoach #businesscoach

“People don’t connect with products, they connect with the values of the brand behind the product. Likewise, people don’t just connect with your words or actions; they connect with the values you consistently communicate through those actions. You’ll attract people with whom you can connect on a deeper level if you first take the time to connect with yourself." .

What many in this situation believe is “stability and sense of self” is actually “control through external validation,” whether they seek this in relationships, or by creating their own external structure for validation, such as a business. 👉 Link in bio.
. The third post in my ‪#book‬ ‪#writing‬ journey series, this idea that "trauma is a tool for ‪#creativity‬" is one I find again and again in my research and the stories I hear. . The display image for the post itself is a series of screenshots from a three-channel video I made in 2011, from a time I was in an abusive romantic relationship. Writing this book has been really powerful for me, and maybe it'll be powerful for you, too. . ‪#geenamatuson #entrepreneurship #healing #mentalhealth #selfhelp #colorpop #retro #value‬ #author #journalism #truth #speakyourtruth #trauma #artist

Hey hi hello! Check out the new blog post I wrote about my #book #writing #journey, link in bio 🙌 I’m at work with the air blasting behind me, haha.) #talkinghead #TV #author

Creativity is a spectrum, and “If we're thinking about it that way,” Patrick continued, “then there aren't two classes of people. There isn't just a manager, and there isn't just a creative type. You can be both, and you just have to learn the reciprocal skill of what you have. You can be on either end of the spectrum, or in the middle, or anywhere along the way — and you can be one person that encompasses two extremes.”
. Last week I shared the first post in a series that shows my ‪#book‬ ‪#writing‬ ‪#journey‬ and thought process. Here's the next installment, looking at ‪#creativity‬ as a spectrum. Also, here's an image I created for a poster design that went unused, haha. . #geenamatuson #author #creativity #entrepreneurship #pink #surreal #glitch #creativityisaspectrum
