Some days you just need to take yourself out of the normal in order to restore the normal. You have to give yourself time to replenish and re-nourish your soul. You have to give yourself a break. You can’t expect to get up every day and be the same and create the same. Every day is new, every day is different, every day brings with it a new set of energies.
Some days can be a real struggle to get to my creativity, to open that door, to get rid of my inner critic. To quiet my mind. And then there are those days when creativity flows so easily out of me, when the words just flow and when I feel so connected to the mystery. I’m just totally amazed, and I am in wonderment of what I see before me on the page. It’s during those times of struggle that I have to remind myself that it’s ok, that I should take a break and allow the nothing to be also, it has a right to be there just as much as the creative doing.
You can’t force creativity, it’s either you’re open and it’s coming through you or it’s not. Forcing it never works, so I have to accept those days also and be gentle with myself and compassionate and allow myself to be in that place.
The last couple of days have been like that for me and after trying to create, to get into it and not being able to, I have to stop and…give myself a brake.
I have to remind myself that every day is new and brings new energies.
The same energies that were yesterday are not true for today and the same energies tomorrow will not be the same as today.
One day I may want to wear red and the next day I’m in black or brown or yellow.
One minute when i look up at the clouds i see animals and the next I see people.
And I’m constantly changing and I can’t be in the same energy every day.
So I’m giving myself a break and I’m not getting stressed over that I can’t open to that inner place. That I’m not able to allow. That I need to create. That I haven’t written what I had planned to. That I can’t find the perfect photo. Instead – I’m allowing myself to just be.
In other words – I’m giving myself a break.
