A Day In the Life of a Writer

“Be careful how you are talking to yourself because you are listening.”

It is not hard to get into a creative slump. It’s very hard to get out. The artistic flow shuts off. We can’t seem to raise out of that undesirable mood, and what happens to our writing? Nothing.
The pen and notebook are idle as is the laptop that has only been opened to view social media. It’s a pitiful state.
A big part of the reason we artistic folk fall into this slump is because of what we tell ourselves. You know, those nasty little negativity bugs that whisper in our ear, creep into our brain and ultimately settle into our very souls.
Fixating on negative emotions will keep us trapped in an unwanted block of space …if we allow it.

“Be careful how you are talking to yourself because you are listening.” — Lisa Hayes  

So, I choose to focus on new thoughts, empowering thoughts.Thoughts that bring healing to my delicate creative mind, not harm. I will remind myself of my accomplishments and my strengths. I’m not waiting until the new year. I’m starting now.
I will be careful when speaking to myself. After all, I am a good listener.
