Taking time for my creative side
HOBL has gone to work,
the home is quiet and I am a tad bit lonely for him
as it's the first time I have the home to myself.
Another thing that has been lacking since we began the move is
my creative side.
Aside of the project I did for my Malaina for Cajun Day
I have not had much time else for playing in
my "new and Improved" scrap book room.
Earlier in the month I read this on another blog I follow
and I loved it because it says so much about me.
About the day I plan on having today:
CREATE WILDLY TODAY!
YOU HAVE A CREATIVE HEART.
IT SHOULD BE CELEBRATED.
OFTEN WE BIND OUR CREATIVITY UP
BECAUSE WE ARE AFRAID OF THE MESSINESS
IT TAKES TO MAKE SOMETHING NEW.
IT'S THE PROCESS OF CREATING THAT WE FEAR,
NOT THE END RESULT ITSELF.
WE FEAR THE MESS.
THE IN BETWEEN STAGES OF TRYING
SOMETHING NEW ARE OFTEN UGLY AND PAINFUL,
AND WE TEND TO TRY EITHER SKIPPING TO THE END
OR NOT STARTING AT ALL IN ORDER TO AVOID
THOSE GROWING PAINS OF CREATING.
I KNOW THIS TOO WELL.
MY EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE IS LITTERED WITH IDEAS
NEVER REALIZED BECAUSE I WAS EITHER
TOO SCARED OR TOO SCATTERED TO WORK THROUGH
THEM AND DISCOVER MY POTENTIAL.
I AM ON THE ROAD TO CREATIVE RECOVERY...
This new scrap room is a gift, a beautiful, wonderful gift
that was part of this new home.
My own "WO"man cave.
Today, I will use it all day and celebrate the creative mind
I was given.
