Sometimes we have dry periods in life. This happens with creativity and matters of the soul. We level our surface, grade it, stake it, and still it is what it is. And then sometimes, we take a second look and it isn’t all what it appeared to be.
Sometimes we seem to be living in a barren wasteland. As far as the eye can see, there is no fertile ground. Sometimes, we have to look deeper than dirt. We must be willing to dowse the soul to come up with a moist chunk of earth.
Sometimes, we just don’t know where to start. Maybe the possibilities are endless. Maybe we just don’t know what direction to head out. Maybe we’re just plain scared of failure. Maybe we just need a little push or a word of encouragement. And sometimes, we just need to hold our breath and take a plunge.
Sometimes, we venture in unsafe areas. We get stuck in the mud. We feel like giving up. We have no desire to pull ourselves out. Sometimes, starting over is a bigger challenge than we’re willing to take. And sometimes, we’re not nearly as entrenched as we think we are.
Sometimes the rivers of creativity and life flow with abundance. Ideas come from everywhere. You become a channel of inspiration. Sometimes when we feel we are running dry, it is necessary to remember that we each have a stream trickling within us. We only need to reach within our own fountains to cleanse our hearts, quench our thirsts, and refresh our souls.
