“Whatever the struggle, continue the climb. It may be only one step to the summit.”Diane Westlake
It has now been about three full weeks that I am doing the “Morning Pages” and I am starting to feel the strain.
To be able to stay in bed, an extra hour in the morning, seems so tempting, what did I get myself into this time? Do I really want to find out if I am an artist??? Why can’t I do it while sleeping?
Yesterday while reading of this marvelous book, “The Artists’ Way”, from Julia Cameron I got very excited to discover that everything happening to me right now, is also part of the creative process I am going through.
Those times when I do not feel like writing, when I feel drained, when it is such a struggle to get out of this warm comfy bed of mine, are all normal and are a sign that I am on the right path. All those thoughts are little traps, I set myself to stop going forward with my own dream. In fact I am being tested by my non-creative side, trying to pull me back into my non-creative comfort zone, the one I have known all those years.
I really thought, I was going the wrong way, that it was a big mistake and I should let it be…However after having read the reason behind this, I am filled up once more with energy and I am keeping on writing.
I could not post without any photograph, so I chose one cloud picture taken last week in a little park close by.
