Sometimes thoughts go whirling around in my head getting in the way of my creating. Not that all my thoughts are distracting or negative. Some thoughts and ideas are just too many all at once and to focus on creating a single piece of artwork causing a distraction from accomplishing anything at all. I did these journal pages to set free some of my thoughts and allow myself the freedom to move forward. I am coming to the conclusion that you can have too many ideas and directions you want to have going on all at once which makes you stumble a bit over yourself. I think I need to focus only on a few specific things to really want to be successful with myself and my personal and art goals.
Have you ever wanted to try so many things you never seemed to get good at any one specific thing? Do you ever have so many ideas that they almost distract you from accomplishing anything? Are you someone who does everything for everyone else and then are exhausted when you sit down to focus on creating? Have you had negative thoughts keep you from creating?
Just get out your art journal and let those thoughts flow and set you free. Get your paints, pens or pencils and reset your internal compass. Don't let your thoughts get in the way!
How wonderful that we have met with a paradox. Now we have some hope of making progress. ~Niels Bohr
Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain. ~Carl G. Jung
