I would consider myself a creative person. In grade school I drew, years later I branched out and tackled sewing, design and embroidery. But with all areas of life there seems to be times of inspiration and times of… well ruts. My creativity seems to be fickle at times, dependent on variables, locations, schedules, and simply inspiration. Some days I don’t even bother picking up a pencil or sitting down at my sewing machine, because I just am not feeling it, or when I do everything I touch seems to turn out all wrong.
I read somewhere that you should create every day. If you sing you sing, if you cook you cook, if you write you write, and if you draw you draw. No matter what, you don’t let your inhibitions, limitations, and current mindset get in the way. you put down your pencil on that paper, and let it out. Because you are still creating, you are creating something, maybe not what you intended to create, maybe something you don’t even really like that much. But you are creating something that wasn’t there before, you are giving it life, and giving your life that experience, that practice, that someday might lead to better things.
I personally love Andria’s Karma Krewe posts. She is so inspiring. She has a passion for yoga, meditation and self reflection, and finds the most scenic places to practice in. There is something beautiful about someone who is so passionate in their trade, whatever it is. I respect that, it is inspiring, and makes me want to work on what I love, more. Drawing. I haven’t drawn in ages, so today I put on my Folk Art organic long sleeve tee, and drawing inspiration from its graphic mystical hand drawn- design, and Andria’s yoga poses, I drew. The human body is amazing, the muscles, the shape, and the form of someone who is in shape, and who is at one with their body, it is a strong inspiring thing.
So I drew today. And I got to say it felt good.
