And so we find ourselves in September. Well, I do, and I am assuming that you are too. Although this year has been full of the weird and out of the ordinary, so perhaps I am just here on my own. ‘Welcome to September’, I said as I looked at my junk journal and created the page above, and ‘welcome to a need for infinite patience’ a voice replied.
There are a few things I want to do. There are several reasons why those things can’t be done. All of the reasons are beyond my control. Welcome to my need for infinite patience.
The good thing about not being able to do certain things is that I can get on and do other things.
The challenge, as always, is to actually do them. I find it far too easy to let the issues I have no control over take up too much of my time. Worrying about something I can’t do anything about feels like my superpower at times. I like to think that it is down to my active imagination, which makes me a creative person. But when my imagination is engaged in worrying, I am anything but a creative machine. Anxiety can be a creative muse, especially for my songwriting, but it is also a creativity killer when it stops me in my tracks.
I need to be patient. And while I wait, I need to create and not let the worry and concern stop me. Watch this space.
