“Emptiness is a symptom that you are not living creatively.” ~Maxwell Maltz
Today I received this quote in a daily email I follow. What is it with emptiness? Yesterday I was feeling a little empty and found solace in some articles I was reading. I decided to share them with you in my daily post. With our plans for the day it seemed easier to use others words that resonated with me. I think if I had dug a little deeper or struggled a little longer I could have dug into the well of consciousness that exist within me and all of us.
Here I am now, disappointed that I didn’t do the work of being authentic and honest yesterday. Spending my morning beating myself up for something that happened in my past. I am not able to see the opportunity in my future. I’m not living in the moment. I’m caught up in yesterday.
When I read this quote this morning I was taken by its truth, and the lesson in it. I reflected back on the prior months of my life where I believe I’d been empty and hadn’t lived creatively, then, back to yesterday all within seconds. I am left here in a state of disappointment for not being “all that I can be” my main purpose and sincere desire in my life.
I believe that we should live in a state of creativity, love and joy all of the time (all that I can be). For now, I’m going to accept (not judge) that for the past few months and yesterday, I was being “all that I can be”. I’m going to love that, considering the alternative of not being good enough. Please feel to join me and be “all that you can be” today and love that too!!
”Blessings on your journey”
