In thinking about the year ahead -- and rolling out the new blog design -- I'm quickly realizing that I need to remember to slow down. I can't just slow down when I feel like it. I need to make a conscious effort every day -- a sort of preemptive, preventative measure. And then, like fate, I recently came across this quote from author Natalie Goldberg...
“If you’re having difficulty coming up with new ideas, then slow down. For me, slowing down has been a tremendous source of creativity. It has allowed me to open up — to know that there’s life under the earth and that I have to let it come through me in a new way. Creativity exists in the present moment. You can’t find it anywhere else.”
How inspiring is that? We should all try to slow down this year, don't you think, friends? Just imagine the bursts of creativity that would come our way!! xoxo
