You ever get in one of those moods where you just have to make something? Where ideas are flowing non stop to the brink of overwhelm? That’s where I am right now. I’ve been sketching like a madwoman and I’ve got so many ideas for new designs that I wish I had little elves that could just churn them out for me. This type of creative energy does not happen all the time for me . . . at least not this strong. But I do experience it often enough. The thing about it though is that it can really throw you off track if you let it. When creativity strikes with such force like this, I find myself starting on one project and being bombarded with ideas for another. Then once I stop and sketch or organize those thoughts and ideas, (because I don’t want to lose the ideas) I realize that I have not completed the original project I was working on. It’s a funny thing about being organized. I used to think I was soooo organized. People would even tell me that I was, but the older I get, I feel as though I am living in a constant state of organized disorganization. I wonder, is there such a thing as organized creativity? My mind tells me that I need to deal with these creative bursts in some kind of an organized fashion, but I’m not sure how feasible that is at the moment. Perhaps this is just part of the process of letting go and being in the moment. Maybe just the fact that I am executing and jotting them down is enough right now. And on that note, I leave you with this thought . . .
This is pretty much the extent of my life for the next 2 weeks. The design process for me is like birthing a baby, maybe a little less painful, but soooooo unbelievably rewarding in the end!! I am so happy to be able to do the thing I love on the daily. Keep reaching for your goals guys. They are within your grasp. xo
