In my own pursuit of creative goals, I’ve realized (sometimes the hard way) that things don’t always go the way you hope them to. However, it isn’t necessary to understand the “whys” and “hows” of every vision or effort before stepping into a process of getting them done. I do believe that focus and determination rule in the creative arena, though. You have to keep going toward your dreams…no matter what gets in your way. This week I’m being greatly challenged in my physical body to even get anything typed out or on paper. But, you know what? I’m doing it anyway. Because I love what I do and I can’t hold in my thoughts because my body doesn’t want to cooperate.
I’m afraid that so many people suffer more from squelched creative dreams than they do from the ailments that keep them from realizing those dreams. It hurts to see yourself as unproductive and even limited by illness, lack, shyness, or whatever may be holding you back. In my case, it’s pain, and now, a possible diagnosis of MS that I did not see coming. That’s OK, I’m kicking it in the gut! At least I might get this one post out. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m here for you gals. I’m not going anywhere. If you are a client, don’t think you are bothering me. You’re not. I need to be productive right now as I fight my own physical battles. My dear readers, please comment more often…give me some feedback on how I can serve you more efficiently and with greater value.
