Give Life to Your Dreams

You can’t use up creativity. The more that you use it, the more you have.”
— Maya Angelou
Maya Quote IMG_1582.jpg

You can’t use up creativity. Mother Maya said it and I believe it. When I started writing poetry, I believed that it was a fluke. I am an attorney, I write legal briefs, I don’t have the creative mind that can consistently create poetry. Because of this mindset, I didn’t share my poetry with anyone and I didn’t think that I would have enough creativity to write an entire book. I was wrong. Once I embraced the idea that I too could be creative, the flood gates opened and words started pouring on the page. I wrote daily for a few months, sometimes spending several days on a short poem but the work was exciting and I fell in love with the art of poetry.

What talents are you afraid of exploring? Give life to your dreams. Start creating your book, art, poems, without fear. If you need direction or encouragement, send me an email. If you have a powerful story to tell, consider sharing it with our Footprints in the Sand community. The time to start is now. I am rooting for you.

With love and gratitude, Janet
