I picked up a book by Madeleine L'engle randomly last week and could not put it down. I sat in one place on a couch soaking up the truths on the pages I incessantly flipped and scanned. After 50 pages or so I closed the book only because I thought it best I buy it if I were going to read the entire thing.
L'engle speaks often to creators in her books saying, "Unless we are creators we are not fully alive." Can you connect with this too?
Before I lose anyone who might actually read this blog and not work in a field the world deems artistic (like the amazing engineers who make up nearly half of my immediate family), L'engle makes it clear anyone can be a creator: "Creativity is a way of living life, no matter our vocation or how we earn our living."
I hope these thoughts provide a big boost to get you going for this week. If we are not a finished work—if our self is always becoming—let's seek to make something really great with these next few days.
Here's to a great week of becoming and creating!
