Do we Need to “Like” Ourselves in Order to Create something Good?



The answer is “No.”
There is no direct correlation between what you feel in this moment and your ability to create something good and meaningful in this life.

I think we kid ourselves and sell ourselves short when we place our sense of feeling before our ability to create.

Many things have been created by people who have felt less than great in the moment of creating.

We need to believe we are more than our transient feelings at any given time. Our abilities to create and manifest supersede these intrusions.

If you need to feel inspired, if you want to create something in your life and don’t quite believe you deserve it, don’t fool yourself into settling for less.

What you feel is somewhat irrelevant in the face of what you can create.

  1. This really rings true with me right now. Having the power to create in the midst of the deepest and darkest trials gives light in the darkness. Really good.

  2. I really love this, Kimberly. Imagine how much easier we’d go on ourselves if we didn’t let the bad moments define us. Thanks!

  3. I imagine that creativity is a thing flowing through us from the divine out to the world, we are a vessel or a conduit. When I think of mood, I think it is extra from that process, a layer on top of it, somewhat superfluous but a part of the whole just the same.

  4. Great art comes from great pain – isn’t that a truism? Not that to create we must be a tortured artist, but I believe that if we create something based on passionate emotions (even the negative ones) then this has far more resonance than creating in the plateau.
