A peek inside my journal...
(sorry for the blurriness...caffeine intake isn't conducive to steady camera work...)
I wrote this inside my journal cover the other day. It is a reminder for myself that the goal of living a creative and inspired life is never actually reached. There is no point that I will reach where I will just, "have it all", and stop growing, stop struggling even. The task of moving forward and not settling means just that- I won't settle into some comfortable spot. I won't just be "done." There is always a new challenge to take on, a new idea to ponder, a new idea to create.
I sometimes get down thinking that life is just an endless struggle. I imagine all the work I've put into things and get discouraged that I often end up in the same spot again. When I end up back in an unwanted spot, heavy with past mistakes and regrets, I have to remember the wise words of Jay Z and just get that dirt of my shoulders! Go 'head brush ya shoulders off!
