I'm frustrated with my creative inertia. I don't understand why everything takes so long. It seems that every time I plan for success, another road block appears. I don't know how many of my setbacks are self-imposed or simply circumstances beyond my control. But, If I were honest with myself I'd estimate my creative stagnation is 10% external causes and 90% internal.
With that in mind, I'm going to make the decision to be positive. Yes, it always seems to take too long. Yes, I can be my own worst
enemy. Yes, I'd be further ahead if I wasn't so focused on the reactions of others or the lack of perfection on my part.
But despite these personal quirks, I am making progress. I am in a process. It's not finished, but it has begun. Every journey begins with a single step. So, I'm stepping forward, slowly, tentatively, but firmly in the direction of fulfilled purpose and joy along the way.
