Mud stuck

You’re working, working, working. Writing, writing, writing. Making, making, making.

2917903751_7194f2abdf_mAnd then all of the sudden – BAM – you’re stuck. The working, writing and making grind to a splattering, muddy halt.

That mud you’re stuck in? Most likely it’s your lizard brain, aka your inner mean girl. She’s scared out of her wits you might fail or not get it all perfect enough.

“What? You succeed?”  she says. “You don’t even know what you’re doing. You’re not fooling anyone – especially me!”

You know this conversation with the inner mean girl because it’s the same old, same old every. single. time. Tedious, isn’t it?

Instead of being stuck in mud and circuitous conversations in your head, get up. Take a break. Fix yourself a cup of tea. Walk down to the corner and back. Get the blood circulating through your heart and your brain.

Now that you’ve had your moment to power wash the mud-stuck mode, get back in there girl. This world needs the working, writing and making that perfectly, perfectly you are creating.

Go. Work. Write. Make!
