For the souls who know that they CAN inspire through creating something and for those who wonder "what CAN I create to inspire (myself)and others, finding the right moment can be a CHALLENGE! The balance between daily obligations ( not often fun) and the NEED, the DESIRE to create something inspirational and satisfying can be difficult--and so we must ALLOW ourselves a time and a way to let all of the great creative juices flow--let the ideas take wing and fly out of our heads and become whatever we want them to be.
Lately, I feel as though my creative engine is stalling, not due to lack of FUEL, but rather due to me not allowing myself time to create -- and to me not honoring creativity a place of priority in my daily activities. If the days and weeks are so jam-packed with must-do's and rushing here and there, there is little or no time left to enjoy things such as baking, singing, sewing, brainstorming, doodling /drawing, gardening, decorating, blogging, crafting --and it SQUASHES the creative "stuff" inside us into a tiny sad ball.
I am taking time to create this blog--even though I must be preparing to get to my job.
I am taking a blank journal and naming it my "Creativity Journal" --and I will write down ANYTHING that comes to mind even if it is FOUR O'CLOCK in the morning!
I am taking time to find what is precious--and share it, and grow it, and nurture it, and REVEL in it!!!
My Sisters, let's allow ourselves these moments as OFTEN as possible. It is a JOYOUS CHALLENGE!
