A friend reached out the other day to check in on how I’m doing with that whole plan to “just create what my heart wants to”. I was embarrassed (and a little angry with myself) to admit that I have not made a damned thing since I decided to take this little pause.
And then I realized that I’ve made progress. I’ve made plans, and I am planting seeds. I realized that it’s ok for me to let go of expectations, and to just see where this road takes me. The results are still intangible, and the process is not entirely comfortable. Still, I think that this is where it starts. It starts with showing up, and being open to possibility. There is no (honest) shortcut to creativity.
Anyway, I’m rambling again. Just wanted to reach out and say that I’m still here, and still striving. Taking a bit of a social media break while I sort it all out, and hoping my friends will continue to hold space for me while I grow.
