A Resting Space

“All I want to do is write!”

I complain about this regularly when life gets in the way of my creative space. A friend challenged me on this statement recently in a unique way.

“Sounds like your mind and body is telling you that you aren’t ready.”

“What?”

“If all you wanted to do was write, you would write. Sounds like you are generating a lot of busy energy around you. If that’s true, then your spirit is telling you that you aren’t ready to but pen to paper yet.”

Sometimes we need to listen to what our spirit is saying. When I let busy get in the way of my creative time and space, my spirit is saying that I’m not ready.

Instead of resisting and fighting the message, lean into it. Take advantage of the resting space to allow your spirit to recover and energize. Look at your excuses, avoidances, and busy all around you and find reasons for the energy to avoid rather than embrace.

Trust yourself. Let your mind and body be ready to enter your creative space.
