Artists get stuck. It happens. If it hasn’t happened, it will. Spinning our wheels in the mud to no avail is how I think of being stuck. Our inclination is to accelerate with the hope that the wheels will lift and place us back on the road. More often than not it leads to a deeper grind and heightened aggravation. Worse, the continuation is wasted energy. After all, the definition of insanity is repeating the same action and expecting a different outcome.
Here is the challenging part. The growth part. The solution, which we know is the only option. Stop waiting. You have to get out of the car and rescue yourself.
Digging ourselves out rather than expecting someone else to do it is the change that needs to happen within. Turn inwards, validate your strength and ability, and accept you’re the only one capable of rescuing yourself.
