On not-so-random acts of release:
One of the biggest roadblocks to creativity is rigid thinking. There are many ways that we can limit ourselves by holding onto our opinions, desire to be right, or past grievances. Unfortunately, hanging on makes it very hard to open up and let the creative juices flow. If you notice, like I did, that there are folks out there that you have some unresolved business with, or if you are wasting energy punishing yourself, do yourself and everyone else a favour: release, relent, remit! Do this any number of ways, but do it through your actions and do it soon!
‘How am I supposed to do that,’ you say?
My solution was not-so-random acts of release. Try a loving gesture for those who you don’t feel warm and fuzzy about (yet): send a token, write a loving letter (no strings attached, just the good stuff!), bring them lunch, or pay them a compliment to a mutual friend. The point isn’t necessarily that they know. The point is that you know you forgive them and that you move on.
Love, after all, is all about action. When you open your heart, you open your mind. Good things are sure to follow.
The details of this gesture are in safe keeping, but I can tell you that it works!
