This can get messy …
If your apartment gets messy, what do you do? You tidy up, right?
If you don’t take care of your garden for some time, what’s gonna happen? Soon, there is going to be weed all over it and if you want to have a beautiful garden, you gotta get rid of it.
It’s the same with our mind.
The “dirt” creeps in all by itself, in the form of negative thoughts, and often we don’t recognize it until the place is really messy.
Problem is, this “mess” can interfere with our creativity.
So, what do you do? Same as with your garden, you weed out.
As soon as you catch a negative thought, replace it with a positive one, or at least with a neutral one. Don’t give the mind power over your emotions and your creativity!
If you see self – limiting thoughts creeping up, replace them with empowering ones!
Try to remember situations from the past where you successfully did that and try to remember how that felt!
Don’t let negative thoughts mess up your mind so much that they can keep you from writing!
Sit down, take a deep breath, remember that you can do this, try to connect to a memory where you were really creative. I’m sure you have those.
Then, take it from there. One step at a time.
