I am a born creater. I love to make things. I love to see ideas come to fruition. I love to dream about things and make them happen. But, lately, I've been heavy on the dreaming and light on the making. it. happen.
This post by Lindsey over at Honeysuckle and Heart really hit the nail on the head for me. This thought particularly catalyzed something in my head. I think it is a place that all blog readers (and authors!) come to at some point.
I can be guilty of looking at all the blogs I love, taking time to admire their projects and to file them away as "inspiration". But, inspiration for what?! If I'm not creating anything of my own...what is the point of being inspired. I think this whole concept is similar to the feeling I get when I have 100 house projects left unfinished. I hear whispers of, "You're lazy. You're totally boring. Not creative. Fraud." And that leaves me depleted and discouraged. If this is how I feel from being part of the blog community, then I either need to change my habits or change my community. :) So, I'll try the easy part first...change my habits. This week I'm going to do my best to set aside one hour each day to create something. I don't know if all that time will go to one project or 5 really simple little projects. However, I do know that I need to set aside some creative time...just to be.
