Remember this Room?
And remember this quilt I was working on?
I barely see this room any more.
I know, I know, I keep saying I’m going to do something about that and I don’t. I get too caught up in other things — things that aren’t as important to me.
I’m human, we all do it. We all let something slip by that feeds our soul and allow things that don’t matter or won’t matter in six months take us over and invade our lives and take up space in our minds.
We allow time-fillers and busywork replace creativity and constructive play. We allow dusting to stand in the place of dreaming when we could be doing both at the same time. Talk about a great use of multi-tasking!
Where do you want to go that you aren’t going? What do you want to do that you aren’t doing? Who do you want to be that you are being? What aren’t you reaching for because you don’t have the time, the courage, the resources or the friend to do it with you? What is stopping you?
And don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean to imply that I think you’re lazy if you aren’t busy doing something wonderful every minute of the day. Maybe your dream is to lay around in bed all day and watch television. Well, if that’s your dream, go for it!
Honestly, though, if you are reading this blog then I’m willing to bet that you are a dynamically creative person whose very soul is fed by creating beauty. Whether it is a quilt, writing a poem or loving a dear friend, whatever your creative mood and mode of the moment is, all I ask is that you do it.
Just do it.
Yours, In Many Peaces of Love,
