Ruts and Grooves

In my previous post I shared my week going from groove to rut so I thought it would be good to share these words of inspiration with you. May you find something here that speaks to you.

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” Jack London

“Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.” Kurt Vonnegut

“More often than not, I’ve found, a rut is the consequence of sticking to tried and tested methods that don’t take into account how you or the world has changed.” Twyla Tharp

“When you’re in a rut, you have to question everything except your ability to get out of it.” Twyla Tharp

“The funny thing about a groove is that you rarely know you’re in it until you fall out.” Twyla Tharp

“The only bad thing about having a good creative day is that it ends, and there’s no guarantee we can repeat it tomorrow.” Twyla Tharp

“Every creative person has to learn to deal with failure, because failure, like death and taxes, is inescapable.” Twyla Tharp

Until next time, be well, sleep well, love well, and create something every day! ~Maria
