Use your wings
A true bird never returns to the wrong nest
Fly. Soar. Fly. Never losing your way little bird.” ~ swm
It finally happened. I’ve heard about creative block. I’ve even written of ways to overcome the barrier to inspiration. I’ve experienced short dry spells in which my mojo just didn’t flow as well as it usually had. This time, however, I hit a wall.
The more I tried to create- the more frustrated I became. The more frustrated I became- the more worthless I felt. I questioned myself constantly- I was an artist who couldn’t “art”. What a vicious cycle!
The chaos began in my home- my nest. With devastating changes in my personal life, came disruptive changes in my personal space. Both of which contributed to my loss of self. I withdrew from the people and activities that are critical to who I am as a human. My creative wings were “clipped”.
I would love to announce that this post brings my grand re-awakening. However, the truth is....still, I struggle to fly. I HAVE managed to create for the first time in months. So maybe this is my proclamation of a FLIGHT PATH. My path back to myself.
My hope is that if you are reading this, and experiencing similar frustrations, you now realize you are not alone. My muse is returning and so will yours. Maybe I can send a feather your way to tuck into your wings!
