First things first.
This splash of color should lift your creative spirits.
Then, check out these two quotes I found in my archives. They’re quite illuminating and pertinent, especially when our attitude doesn’t seem to be cooperating.
“Your mood doesn’t really matter. Some of the best creative work gets done on the days when you feel that everything you’re doing is just plain junk,” said Julia Cameron, 19th century photographer.
Then there’s this from renowned author John Updike —
“Any activity becomes creative when the doer cares about doing it right, or doing it better.”
So where do you fall?
If you don’t care, then maybe it doesn’t matter. If you do care, consider yourself reassured.
