Riding the Wave of Creativity


creativityAnytime I get an idea, in most cases, I immediately follow it with action. There is something I learned about myself, and that is that when I let it sit for too long, the inspiration is gone and I lose interest fast.

There are plenty of unfinished projects in my studio I could show you because I hesitated or simply just stopped instead of following it through.

But I fully believe that ideas and dreams come to us because we are meant for them. Let me sound a bit cliché for a moment “it’s part of the destiny”.

So, the next time you notice an idea and you can’t wait to take action, start. Don’t hesitate!

This is the moment to seize the idea and just run with it because the moment you hesitate all the doubts and fears will make their appearance. And you will literally have killed the idea before you even took action.

But what if for just a moment you decided to take action and allow yourself to ride the wave of creativity?

Sometimes these are very fleeting moments and you owe it to yourself to show up for them.

Here’s the thing, it’s okay to not always feel inspired but when the moment comes, ride it out. Surfers don’t always have the perfect wave, but even they keep showing up to catch just the right wave.

And what if your idea is that one thing that could change your life forever? Isn’t that just the thing you may be chasing?

So, the next time that idea enters your mind, make a choice to not hesitate.

Decide that you will act, even if you don’t know how or what the result will look like.

No one can really predict the outcome and you won’t know it until you do it!

  1. I’ve definitely hesitated when I should have just run with an idea. Even now I should be making further attempts with my pastels but am here reading your post! LOL.
