Something really cool just happened.
In my office doing sludge work. Y’know, the kind of work you do because you have to not because you want to and this time I was can’t-lift-another-finger discouraged and couldn’t do it. So I went somewhere for inspiration.
My own website. And gosh darn, I was so inspired (and surprised) that I went to my blog and then to the archives of some recent personal work and I finally…smiled.
You see, I found pleasure and enjoyment in something I created. In the age of Pinterest, FB, Twitter, Instagram etc it’s so easy to look at your work and constantly judge it by the criterion of what’s hot and happening around you. But when, if even for a moment, you bury your head into your soul you might just find something shiny and wonderful.
I looked inside and found art. I met the artist and I was pleased with her and her…was me.
And that felt pretty ding-dang good.
I hope that you too will take a moment to explore your soul.
