Creative_Gone_Mad_Day_25_Simple_Truths_8262015 copy I just realized the time and I don’t know how much I am going to be able to write in such a compressed window. Then I also realized I hadn’t published day 24 yesterday, though I spent such a long time writing it. Then again, I guess the best ideas can be said simply, right? Not that I would know, because I tend to write, write, and then I go and write some more…don’t I? Why the hurry…welllll… So basically, I started working on some design stuff and now it is completely consuming me. Like, I don’t know how to stop it. I started with one concept, and I didn’t realize that concept was leading me somewhere else. Now I feel I  ‘have’ what I was looking for in the first place. I thought that first idea was the one, but then I realized, I had to modify…a bit like starting over but not completely. What do I want to say, though? Life is good—truly. There is nothing wrong with starting over and giving something a second try. There is nothing wrong with falling down, as long as you get back up. There is nothing wrong with what we perceive as failure, as long as it is a pit stop to our final destination. Clearly you can see where this is going. Some may call them clichés, trite expressions. The truth is, if we truly embraced these simple expressions, we would all be less afraid. We would all be more courageous, brave, and full of hope. Each of us would be a bit more audacious and daring. It goes to show that even simple truths, though often repeated, are rarely understood and accepted. But you must know that your life will not fail you and you must trust that this is a fact. Yours Truly, Creative Gone MAD

Every night I sit down to right this blog, I start to wonder where I am going with all of this. Funny to think it has been almost month of writing one day after the next. I planned this project some time ago, not entirely sure of how it would materialize. I suppose in many ways, it has turned into one open diary—less poetic, less inspiring, and more thought speak. Just a flow of ideas. The heightened sense of awareness I have experienced is absolutely amazing, though.  The things I feel and the things I can see about myself, I definitely wasn’t able to see or feel before. I think sitting down and listening very closely to my thoughts has positioned me to do this somewhat regularly. I am always monitoring the dialogue I am having with myself, watching my thought patterns and habits as they unfold. Its kind a creepy actually, lol, but it makes for great learning nonetheless. Today, I have been reflecting a lot on persistence and endurance. Of course I’ve talked about this before. What is it that makes some people able to work tirelessly toward a certain goal? What is it that makes them push forward no matter what, no matter how bleak or dire things seem? It seems like something far greater than hope.  I don’t mean this in some depressing way, at all. I have a ton of talented friends. But within this group, there is a certain subset that is able to dedicate themselves tirelessly to the pursuit of their goals. They aren’t concerned with statuses, titles, money…etc, it’s something bigger than that. Their dedication to their cause inspires me to do the same, granted some of them think I am far more committed to my ideas and ideals than they are. At some point in the pursuit of a certain goal, your ability to maintain your composure and ‘push through’ is tested. Many of us want to enjoy the fruits of success without enduring the sacrifices, ridicule, pain, and enormous setbacks that might come along the way. Whether it is a matter of patience, perseverance, or dedication, if you are ever able to find a spark inside of you that grows strong enough to set your world on fire—don’t ever lose it. There are people who wait their entire lives to find a path or calling that makes them feel alive. Regardless of what it is, if you find that thing, you pursue it with fierce determination and ride it until the wheels fall off. Yours Truly Creative Gone MAD

You know…so this morning, I feel like I had another ‘layer’ of that awakening I was talking about. When things start coming to us, it literally feels like we have been asleep our entire lives. I am starting to watch myself move, listen to myself talk, and I am really…starting to feel things I’ve never felt before. I think there is a sense of abandon that is developing. But it’s not really abandon though. It’s a sense of not being able to continue to living life the way I have lived it. I have always said you can’t change people, life changes people. People experience something or someone that radically changes or shifts their lives, and then suddenly they change, grow, or evolve. Life brings them to a point of evolution, and then it happens right before our eyes. What I have learned the past few weeks is the beauty of connection and embracing change and evolution. It has not been easy, but I think there is some wisdom that I certainly cannot put into words. Every single day, I try my best to describe this process, and I am failing more and more with each try. It doesn’t stop me from trying though, inbetween all of my rambling of course. My friends, family members, and dear others have been so supportive in listening to me ramble on about theories, philosophies, and ideas. So supportive and so patient I might add. In many ways, I think they are starting to see a new person emerge, more daring and willing to go after the things that once seemed so difficult and unimaginable. As this happens, I notice our relationships are becoming stronger and more sincere. It’s almost as though I can feel the strength of the connections themselves, and it’s a great feeling—you can’t fake that. I think I am able to connect with them more, because I am in direct connection with myself. It is truly amazing how disconnected we can be from who we are and not even know it. As we start to slowly restore the connection to our authentic selves, it becomes easier to separate the wheat from the chaff in our lives. The closer we get to our core, the more we desire people around us who are doing the same and the more we attract those who are consciously on similar paths.  If we are lucky, we will find ourselves surrounded by bold, courageous souls who inspire us to discover the stability that rests deep within. These inner reserves offer us all the energy, strength, and nutrition we each need to survive in this life, fulfill our purpose, and reach our goals. Yours Truly, Creative Gone MAD
