It’s no secret that I wrote a lot of very complex and creative stories in a relatively short period of time. It’s also no secret that as a result of not listening to my body or my intuition that I ended up extremely burned out. It’s also no secret that I took about 2 and a half years off and checked out of the outside world to attend to my inner world.
But here’s what’s new: I’m back. I’m recharged. I’m revived. I’m refilled. I’m reinvigorated. I’ve been reborn into a new version of myself. And what’s more—I’m ready to get back to work.
Not because I have to. But because I need to.
It took me a long time to realize that creative self-expression is simply the essence of who I am. I’m here to be myself. I’m here to create things that have never existed before in the exact way that I create.
I realized something else that’s extremely important: I have so much more work to do. I am nowhere close to done creating.
My greatest creations are still inside of me. They’re calling for release. They want out. Words. Stories. Projects. Plans. They’re all there, and they’ve been waiting for this moment.
As Victor Hugo said, “Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come.”
I have a lot of ideas whose time has come. They’re ready to be born. They’re ready to live in the world. They’re ready to be consumed and beloved.
Never again will I question the timing or flow of my life. It’s perfect. It’s always been perfect. And now the perfect time has arrived to hunker down and give life and wings to these wild and fanciful ideas inside of me. Now, it’s time to create.
I’m going into the forges. I’m walking into the silence. I’m strapping into the rollercoaster. And I’m so freaking ready. I’ve missed this. I’ve missed being me.
I can’t wait to show you all of the magic I create next.
Thank you for your patience with me while I rebuilt myself from the inside out. I love you dearly, and I am forever grateful to you. Now, this artist is off to work.
