Just get started

  • Posted on July 29, 2014 at 9:43 am


So I’ve decided it has been WAY TOO LONG since I last posted to this site. And this got me thinking… what has been holding me back?

Yes, I’ve procrastinated.
Yes, I’ve found other “more important” things to do.
Yes, I’ve been stuck in knowing what to write about.

But really its been a bit of fear kicking in. “What if no-one likes what I’ve got to write?” “Is it a waste of my time adding to this site anyway?”

And then it dawned on me. I am spending way too much time being creative in reasons NOT to write, when I could be using that creative energy to simply write ANYTHING.

You see I believe that a body in motion is easy to adjust to a more fruitful path than one that is still stationary.  It is simply the force of inertia. And now that I have got going, the ideas are flowing, and hey, I’m even surprising myself with what I’m writing. I wonder what thought will come next?

And then it occurs to me that I’m no longer forcing the process of creation. Now I am simply allowing. The words are flowing. They are forming almost as fast as I can type, and I wonder am I really thinking them or simply dictating them from a higher source?

Is this the creative process? Simply get started, in any direction, because in the moving process we allow ourselves to move away from the fear. We allow ourselves to simply be in the moment of creation, and this is when our soul starts to sing. Perhaps I will start to sing now, who knows! Perhaps that will be fun. Perhaps I can find an even greater form of joy to move towards, and now that I am already moving it is easier to keep moving…

And with that thought I am going to sign off and encourage you to take a first step… in any direction… and just get moving, because once you are moving the momentum builds and creation unfolds.

Happy creating.
