Sometimes I embarrass myself. No, let’s make that ‘often’ instead of sometimes. I start off things with a lot of enthusiasm and then let them fizzle out.
There are a few unfinished series on this blog, and The Artist’s Way is one of them. It started off with a bang but I let it go for a while. There’s no point having good intentions, if we don’t follow up on them.
Back To The Artists Way Again
I’m reviving it again and the the Write Your Heart Out feature, every Thursday. However, I’m not adding a linky to the post – just letting it be an encouragement to both you and me to keep writing authentically.
So far, The Artist’s Way series included :
- Write Your Heart Out With The Artist’s Way – Introduction
- Recovering A Sense Of Safety Week 1
- Recovering A Sense of Identity Week 2
From next week, I’ll get back on track with the series with Week 3. Perhaps, you can catch up with the previous posts, until next week when I’m back to The Artist’s Way, every Thursday. (updated: ‘famous last words, you say!)
The best part of Julia Cameron’s, The Artist’s Way is that it is so full of wisdom and encouragement for writing. That is precisely what I need especially when I’m feeling a little overwhelmed at present. At times, I feel that I’ve bitten off more than I can chew I recall Julia Cameron’s words from her other book, Finding Water: The Art of Perseverance:“God does not give us more than we can handle,” I am told but I wonder if God doesn’t overestimate me just a little. Or perhaps, and this is likely, I underestimate God.”
That’s so true of me. I underestimate God’s grace that gives me strength to start over – time and again.
What I love about life is all the second, make that a hundred, chances we get at starting over. I do believe that nothing is impossible to revive and renew. Every day we have a chance at starting over, at re-thinking what’s working for us and what is not. What we need to discard, and what we need to pick up again.
“Every day begins like a blank chalkboard, on which each one of us can write the poem of our present and our dreams for the future.” ― Ricky Martin
Write Your Heart Out #wyho is weekly feature that appears every Thursday. It used to have a linky – not any more. This is an invitation to keep going with The Artist’s Way and an encouragement to keep writing.
