My Hike With Creativity
My relationship with creativity often mimics my relationship to hiking a mountain.
Sometimes I charge full on and exhaust myself before I make it to the top.
Sometimes a slow and steady pace is just what I need.
Sometimes I start with dread, need to rest along the way, or don’t even finish at all.
And other times I am so charged with energy and enthusiasm that I wish there were a second or third peak I could climb. If it were Everest before me, I would laugh with excitement.
As with the mountain, so it is with creativity.
Providing a platform for me to decide how I want to engage that day.
Offering me a variety of terrain.
Calling out to me to come play.
Reserving judgment for the way I show up that day.
Inspiring my life experience to be more.
Every hike is different.
Every day with creativity is different.
No matter what kind of hike I end up taking, I never regret showing up and putting one foot in front of the other.
