squeezing it out
I'm pushing myself in every direction right now. I'm writing, reading, forcing new material down my throat constantly and trying to digest it.
I'm learning, growing, and expanding this little mind. It will never be big enough.
And on the side my creative energy is glowing. I'm making business cards, getting my photo exhibit up.
I used to think life was boring, that it wasn't enough. But I wasn't diving deeply into it, and now I'm finally giving it a chance to prove itself to me.
A little hard work goes a long way, and suddenly I feel doors all around me opening because I'm applying myself.
Rather than feel exhausted, I feel invigorated.
"There is a quickening, a vitality, a life force that is translated through you into action and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium, and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable, nor how it compares with others' expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to stay open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
(I promise some more concrete blogs when I have my head together.)
