“If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write.”
― Martin Luther
Out of the many creative things I spend my time on in a given week, writing has not been one that gets much attention. But I’ve had this feeling lately that that needs to change.
Doubt can be the best friend of procrastination. I’ve often doubted that I have anything to say so found it much easier to go on creating pretty pictures and work as usual. But I can’t put it off any longer.
Let me tell you where I’m at.
A few months ago I decided to take a step back and re-evaluate my life, asking myself (and my wife) many questions. Where was I heading and what did I want my life to look like? If I was intentional, could I grow as an artist, a leader, a husband? Could I dream big and do work that matters? Work that I not only love, but touches other peoples’ lives in the process?
So I’ve jumped into this journey. This intentional season of process. To discover myself and what I was meant to do in this world. And I’ll admit… I don’t know what I’m doing. I just know that as I move forward, the hindsight will make sense.
I have so much swimming in my head these days. And that’s what brings me here, to this blog. I intend for this blog to be a way process some of these big thoughts and to hopefully walk with other creatives who are in the same place of discovering their life’s work. I know that there’s a community out there doing this and I’m so excited to jump into it. We need each other’s ideas and encouragement and I’m learning it’s impossible to do this on my own.
So I’m excited and hopeful! I’m growing and so is my idea of what work is and what that looks like. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
To the future.
