Readers, it’s time for revival.
The other day I woke up a bit late and missed class. To my surprise, a surge of thought about work and passion came to mind, and fought head to head. I thought I’d share my thoughts for those in a creative rut, or deciding whether to create when the creativity strikes, or focus on daily work.
Here’s to anyone in a rut, a struggle, or needing their passion!
“I sit now in a house that isn’t mine and feel the sunshine staring at me through the window. What to do next. It’s always on my mind. To find the time to care for my creative self. The pace of this world is fast and never ceases. How to fit, how to run, and how to put together all the pieces to make my world spin a little longer, to sing a song… dear life, I can’t find mine!”
“I know it exists, and I persist, blanketed by veils of my own understanding. And understanding of sorts that I swim through, relive every moment I can to revive myself. My world is a beautiful one.”
“So what’s next?”
“I woke up late, and it’s later now, so for today, that time is lost in the air around me. Groceries and necessities are paid in full and I need nothing more. My work stares at me like a shadow on the wall.”
“But oh, how I can’t ignore the passion to create!”
“My work gives me taps on the shoulder, not reminding, but stinging. Work, I will get to you, but please be quiet, as I am in my better world. I have to be careful with balance, I know… but how careful, really? Can I not go free and do what my passion tells me to do? After all, isn’t it myself I need?”
“I am all I have after all, and what good does it do to ignore myself? Caught between tides, an ocean of two realities – needs, and higher needs. Can I hold my mind in place long enough to work?”
“Or will the numbers and words fall off the page, my scribbles spilling and my ideas floating away in the air, frantically trying to get them back?”
“So what’s next?”
“Mind over matter, I always know. There’s a part of me, though, that I need not ignore because if I do, my work will kill me. The chill of the sunshine will burn me.”
“Passion is what I need, and today will be wasted if I don’t pay attention.”
