It’s time…

My intention for this year is to live my truth. I am starting this blog from an insecure place, but that’s OKAY. Over the years I have dreamt, talked and thought about writing. I’d always thought it would be a novel. Last week I watched a video from Marie Forleo of Marie TV on perfection. She said you need to go for Progress not Perfection. In not so perfect words, she said If you are not embarrassed by your early stage work than you are not trying and stifled by perfection. Just click publish. The thought of being vulnerable and putting my words out into the universe, open to criticism, has always stopped me in my tracks. I made excuses about the timing not being right or lack of inspiration. I even have the perfect little black writing desk. I purchased it over 5 years ago from Pottery Barn with saved loose change. On it sits a beautiful white iMac waiting for me to create the next great American novel. Sad to say it didn’t inspire me enough to break down my walls.

In July of 2017, I came down with bacterial pneumonia and ended up in the hospital for several weeks. It was the first time in my life I was seriously ill. While in the hospital I was in denial about the seriousness of my situation. It wasn’t until I was out of the hospital for several weeks, my lungs and body still painful and weak, that I realized what I went through was not as simple as a bad cold. For the past several months my path has been different. Visions of the life I want to live are ever present. I have a great career, loving family, vibrant yoga and meditation practice, but I still felt empty. The creative spirit I had when I was younger has been dormant for a long time.

On Friday night, I mentioned to my husband that I had come up with an idea for a blog and decided on a name. In my search I checked to see if Instagram and Twitter were available as well. He looked at me and said, “What are you waiting for, set it up.” In a panic, I started explaining the costs and what it would take to set everything up. He looked up at me and said, “We have the money. What do you have to lose” and handed me my laptop. CreativeMindPizza was born. Wish me luck…
