Food for thought on a Wednesday:
Boy, does this post resonate with me. I came across it last week, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.
Thanks to Melanie Falick and Jeanette Sloan for digging into the topic of goals and making and creativity and motivation and inspiration.
Jeanette’s question, “What are you waiting for?” is everything.
Melanie’s book, Making a Life:Working by Hand and Discovering the Life You Are Meant to Live, has shown me dozens of people who are putting their creative skills to work. There’s something so inspiring about meeting these people who have made their curiosity into a central part of their lives. Everybody does it their own way. No two lives are the same. Fascinating to see.
As we find ourselves deep into a year unlike any other, what comes to mind when you think of things you haven’t done but would like to do?
I’ll start. Plant a flower garden. Write a second novel. What am I waiting for?
For your own inspiration and bedtime reading, you’ll find copies of Making a Life in the MDK Shop. We’ll include a card handmade by Melanie with your order, while supplies last.
