So much of what we worry about never happens. Worry is in a real sense the dark side of imagination. You’re looking at the stuff that could theoretically happen, but probably won’t, unless it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.
I think we can all put our creative minds to better use.
I think this is a vital truth for every creative. We can have all the ideas in the world, but they have very little value until they are shared with the world. As Seth Godin says, “Art is a gift” and “Real artists ship!”
What have you been holding back. It’s time to let it out.
This is the last day of his challenge, it took me a while to come up with something about the word “Lush.” I thought it was going to be something about greenery and it is to a point, but it’s more about complaining. Did you ever notice for some people it’s always “too something…” too hot, too cold, etc.? Sometimes we all complain, and we all have our strengths and weaknesses, our tastes and our tolerances, but there is Someone who keeps this whole thing going and He knows exactly how everything works and what everything needs to be. We need to trust Him, deal with what is and stop complaining.
I know, easier said than done.
The old saying says, “what you feed grows, what you starve dies.” The question we must all ask ourselves is what are we feeding? Like the person who takes in a large predator as a pet. It’s all well and good for a while but eventually it will take over, and maybe eat it’s master. If you want to kick a habit, you have to starve it. If you want to build a better behavior, feed it. It’s not science (well I guess technically it is) care for the things you want to enhance in your life, starve what you want to get rid of.
This is especially important with our minds and our creativity. There are all kinds of things that will choke out our creativity. Negative attitudes, poor self image, and on and on. All that kind of stuff needs to starve so your best stuff can thrive.
What are you feeding?
