I’m a creative person. Always have been. And when my creative juices get flowing, I can’t sleep at night.
I toss and turn and ideas swim in my head and it takes everything within me not to get out of bed and start activating them
I’ve never been one who’s good at being patient.
I’ve always been an activator, a do-er.
I don’t like pondering. I don’t really like considering. It geos against my grain to “weigh the options.”
As an adult I’ve had to learn how to do some of those things of course. (And I do, htough I still someitmes struggle.)
But the “make it happen now” part of me is just that – part of me.
As I’ve realized that it’s helped me to see my weakness, but also see the strength in it.
Some of the absolute best things in my life have been done on a whim.
But it’s more than a whim – it’s an instinct.
My blog (both my blogs ctually) were started that way – with about… oh, three minutes of deliberation before just DOING it.
One of the best years of my life (spent backpacking in Europe) was a string of spontaneity, one instinctual decision after another.
And even bigger, more significant things too – Judah was conceived like that. I won’t go into details, because that’s just too much information – ha! – but I will say it was a very specific divine moment of decision.
Then BOOM here he was (and I’ve never looked back, we’ve never looked back). One of the best decisions of my entire life.
Needless to say my creative juices are flowing lately. (Thank you blogging and thank you Pinterest.)
It’s making it very, very hard for me to keep to my goal of a 10:30pm bedtime. *sigh*
Why do I feel so much more creative after dark?
STOP. (Totally went over time on this post!! By almost a minute!! Bah!)
Q for you: When’s the last time you made a gut decision on a “whim” and it turned out beautifully?
