Creative acts are also acts of courage. When you begin, and begin, and begin again, you set greatness in motion. You are building a life with every new beginning. We move forward with a thousand small steps. There is no other way. It may seem like we will never arrive - and then we remember it has been about the journey all along. Every time I squeeze paint out of the tube and onto the pallet, I am the soldier leaving the fox hole charging the hill.
We are all a part of colony, like bees, like ants, or a flock of sparrows. Our daily decisions effect the whole flock. We inspire one another with our lives - or we do not. We simply cannot afford to be anything less than all of our fullest potential. Have you ever have that dream where you discover a entirely new room in your house that you didn't know you had? There may be something inside you that wants to awaken. What was thought to be just a hill on the horizon turned out to be a sleeping giant now on the move.
Do that thing that's whispering in your ear. Plan that trip, open that store, buy that sketch pad, make that phone call, write that letter, take that leap of faith. Move forward into the most creative version of yourself -- and stop living a wing-clipped life because you can't afford it, and neither can we.
