Have you ever been caught up in a creative whirlwind? Most Musicians, Artist’s and various other types of Creatives typically have these seasons in common.
To best explain… it’s when you’re extremely driven and highly inspired to use your gifts and talents. You begin pumping out creative content like a machine on auto pilot. You’re in a ZONE and can do a week’s work in two days. Okay, maybe I’m telling on myself, but you get my drift. There are great advantages when this flurry happens - you get to share and help people at a high clip, but the downside is BURNOUT and frustration.
You have high expectations for the work you’re producing and since great things take time to build and establish… the process of growth can become much slower than the rate at which you’re creating.

I’m much better now than I use to be (Praise Yah) but I still have a way to go. I’m not down about it at all. In fact, I think pausing for a moment to ponder on these types of things are super important. I can just tell I’m caught up in one of those good ol’ fashion creative whirlwinds (again) where I’m doing too much and need to address it.
So, I’m reaching out to my Royal fam for a little help. Would you look at the list below and let me know what you’re most inspired by and what’s most helpful to you? This will help a great deal as I go in prayer and fast about what to potentially keep on my plate and what to place on the back burner.
