I have been stuck in a bit of a creative funk lately.
I am a writer – but haven’t had enough time to really dig in to my manuscripts. And when I have, I got stuck.
I love photography, but haven’t had as much time as I’d like to take good pictures. The ones I’ve taken didn’t come out as I’d hoped.
I love playing guitar, but nothing sounds good to my ears. I can’t seem to get a good “feel” for the songs and they all sound out of tune.
SO WHAT DID I DO?
I tried something new!
I am NOT an artist by nature. But I confess that I have prayed (on more than one occasion) that God would give me that ability. My daughters draw and color with abandon – so I decided to follow their example!
As you can see… It is isn’t perfect or fit for the Louvre. But wow – it made me happy and was pure fun!
My oldest DD colored it in and made it even better.
And guess what? It made me want to draw more. And color! And paint! And…
AND PLAY GUITAR.
Creativity begets creativity – doesn’t it?
God gave us the gift of creativity… and that gift manifests in many ways! Singing, writing, painting, baking, building, photography, dancing…and the list goes on!
So if you are stuck in a funk with the gift you KNOW of – how about giving yourself permission to try something new? You might find that you have a hidden gift.
So what are you waiting for? I want to hear all about it!
