I am trusting the creativity and I am trusting myself to sit down and write down the ideas, the inspirations, the stories that fill my head, my heart, my whole body.
I signed up for this challenge very last minute and like a lot of things, I have to admit, I tend to let things slip away, avoiding them because my ego gets itself wiggled into my thoughts that maybe I can’t finish this challenge, maybe I won’t finish the story and send it into the contest, maybe I won’t send a query letter to publishers to share my manuscript. Ever hear that self-doubter voice? Mine is a little bratty girl who thinks she knows it all, but guess what? She doesn’t. I give her plenty of time outs so that I am able to sit down and write and follow through, press submit to a contest, and yes, I’m still working on that query letter, but I trust I will, because the drive for me to share the creativity is stronger than any little temper tantrum little girl not getting her way. That’s right ego, I’m talking about you.
Creativity requires faith. Faith requires that we relinquish control. This is frightening, and we resist it. Our resistance to our creativity is a form of self-destruction We throw up roadblocks on our own path….This manifests itself as sluggish, confusion, “I don’t know”. The truth is, we do know and we know that we know. Each of us has an inner dream that we can unfold if we will just have the courage to admits what it is. And the faith to trust our own admission. ~ Julia Cameron
It is hard to admit that we actually know that we are to be creating, and trust tat we know this. I trust the creativity and I trust that I will follow through and I am the only one who can follow through. If I need to ask for help to follow through that’s okay, we all need a little help from time to time. A gentle nudge and hug to say ‘you can do this.’
You can do this.
Until next time, keep on typing….
