Silence in the process
Updated: Oct 27, 2019
Until I realized that like the seasons, I go through creative phases, it used to drive me mad when I couldn't write.
But if I'm truly honest, I'm struggling once more, not with the writing but in the sharing.
It's not for lack of things to say. It also has nothing to do with whether or not writing will be read. I just don't know what exactly it is other than most of my writing these days are for me and part of my struggle has to do with the fact that overall:
I am happy.
It sounds odd to share that's it's foreign for me to write from that space. It's also interesting because the feeling of contentment that I feel most days pulls me into an urban zen flow, but it's true. Creative expression has always been my outlet, writing my base, but it's expanded and is enjoyable as I build this brand, channeling the creative flow through the challenge of learning design, and finding the way to blend my writing, painting, and photography.
As November draws near, soul what nears it's 'official' 1st anniversary. I say 'official' because the name for the brand came in the November prior and it's really the home for all the creative outlets I take part in creating and curating.
So if that's the growth, I'll take it. I've learned enough of the journey to trust there is a time, place, and space for everything. Perhaps, that means continue to reflect on the enjoyment and the fulfillment and where it fits in contrast to the tragedies of Life as they unfold.
With that, I'll continue in this new space of silence.
Bless up my Soul Ohana, bless up.
