A New Leaf

Spring is in the air today.

I just spent several hours with an exceptionally inspiring person whom I am proud to call a friend. You know how some days you wake up and realize it’s time for a change? Well, today is one of those days. Some stuff has been percolating inside me for a while, some new ideas, new goals, new perspectives. I’m trying to free them and let them be born into my world, into my reality.

I’ve been thinking a lot about creativity lately, and about the creative process. I’ve been spending a fair amount of time contemplating that creative urge and what is required to make it manifest. I’m struggling to unlock all the doors that stand between my creations and the world. They are locks I’ve placed on doors I’ve built myself. Time to let in some fresh air and let my creations outside to play.

This is getting pretty New Agey. But I’m not going to allow my Inner Cynic to smother this feeling. (Let me know if you’d prefer not to read my New Agey ramblings, and I’ll take you off the filter.) I think I’m going to allow myself to get New Agey to explore some ideas and do some inner work. Somehow, I think I’m ready to move in new directions.

So, creation walks hand in hand with discipline, I think. I’m going to let this tool, my LiveJournal, help me establish a new discipline—one that supports my aspirations and creations. I feel a powerful urge to write, and LJ has unlocked one of those doors. So, I guess I’ll start in two ways.

First I’ll breathe.

Then I’ll write.

Then I’ll breathe some more.

    This little light of mine,
    I’m gonna let it shine….


    Hide it under a bushel, NO!
    I’m gonna let it shine

    Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine…

    Yes, something like that. I’m tired of all the negative self-talk in my head. I fired that bitch.
