I needed a prompt today, so I Googled “creativity quotes” and found this one. I had never heard it before, but it seems like a wonderful way to focus my intentions for the New Year.
I want to grow into someone I’ve never quite known before in 2017. I don’t want to lose the good parts (compassion, curiosity), but I want to become a creative person. I don’t just want to create things or blog posts or poems. I want to be creative. I’m trying to figure out exactly what that means. I want to approach my world with the kind of glasses that help me become that person.
Who will I be on the fourth day of January 2018? Who do I want to be? I want to be a brave person. I want to be vulnerable in relationships. I want people to see who I really am, instead of hiding behind some ways of interaction that feel safe, but keep me from the kind of emotional intimacy I long to find in relationships.
How can I get there? I wish I knew. I’m trying to dig deep through my writing. I sit here and wonder if I focus too much on myself or not enough. I want to be the person I want to find for myself.
It’s so hard to find my way. I feel like I can’t see the forest for the trees. So I’m going to try to cut through some of the crap to find what I know is there. The answers to me are there. I just have to keep cutting through the crap.
