Creators gotta create.
And when she doesn’t?
She CRACKS IT. Big time.
Yeah…. I kinda lost it this morning. I don’t often feel anger. I particularly don’t often feel rage. But this morning? I threw my phone on the ground.
Some days I just wish I had a punching bag.
You see… Yesterday I didn’t get time to write.
I thought I could do it after my son went to sleep, but that was at around 9, and my brain had already turned to mush.
And this morning? Well that creative drive to live and breathe and ride that creativity wave – it was angry. Angry it didn’t get fed.
Are you a creative too? If so, then you know what I mean.
You gotta feed that creative monster.
Just like you gotta fuel your soul.
It’s the same thing.
We are ALL creative beings. And we ALL need that time to fuel our soul.
When our soul is starved, we get angry. We might even throw our phone on the ground.
Now…. I KNOW that we have everything we need already inside of us. It’s just a matter of drawing it out.
So time to put my big girl pants on and practise what I preach – finding my own source and fuelling myself. Because you CAN’T rely on ANYONE to fuel your soul for you. You’ve got to learn to do it yourself, so that you can light your fire whenever you need.
So…. Yes, I’ve been up since 3:30 (thanks, son. You’re so lucky you’re cute). Yes, it feels like half a day has gone already and I’m well into the 3pm slump, even though it’s only 8:30. But…. I have GOT to fuel my soul or I’ll remain angry. And I don’t want to break my phone.
So…. Now with coffee in hand, and the boy asleep on my lap, I can take a breath. I can go INSIDE my soul. And I can fuel it from the inside.
I stoke that fire.
I am free.
I can breathe again.
This creator’s gonna create.
Please… Take a minimum of 5 minutes today to fuel your soul. You’ll thank yourself for it 🙂
