The Spark Of Creativity
You may feel that your creative endeavors are coming to naught today. Since your most imaginative efforts are likely yielding few results, you may be tempted to believe that you are not capable of conceiving of anything truly novel. However, you should not assume that your temporary creative immobility is a sign of deeper issues. You may simply be tired or overwhelmed, and thus in need of a break from the task at hand. Your ability to dream up fresh ideas and original solutions to problems will likely return today once you have given yourself an opportunity to recover from your earlier exertions.
When we feel that our imagination is being blocked by forces outside of our control, we can rekindle the spark of creativity within ourselves by stepping momentarily away from the task at hand. Even a short break refreshes our mind, affording us a useful opportunity to reflect upon why we are drawn to the act of creation. Though the answer capable of quelling our frustration may not immediately present itself to us, we can nonetheless benefit from placing some distance between us and the issue causing us to lose our hold on inspiration. Undertaking a mundane task can also provide us with the time we need to reflect upon our creative potential while giving our minds a break from the challenges inherent in creative thought. Your ability to apply imaginative thought to your everyday life will return today when you put some space between yourself and your frustrations.
