Sometimes the undesirable and embarrassing parts of who we are make the best stories.
Writing does that... it uses creativity to lift us out of self-judgment about our personal weaknesses and into comedy, healing or just an awareness of our common humanity. ,

If creativity is a value of yours, you know it can make every part of your existence better. Conversely, when you don't get to it, you feel a kind of spiritual constipation and free-floating crankiness . There's no doubt getting into a creative flow can be elusive, frustrating, or seemingly impossible.
I've been there with the distractions, perfectionism, doubt, overwhelm, and resistance but I've also discovered ways to make it more of a priority in my life . It grounds me in my gifts and my relationship with myself makes living a whole lot more enjoyable. And I've taught these "ways" to people for the last 20 years.
It helps to have a place to show up so the effort is made easier and the inspiration is designed. Talking About Creativity and The Underground Highway to Creative Results are two such places.
