Stop Looking For It So I Can Find It

It’s amazing how the mind works. One mystery that any person should solve is how their mind works. Even discovering a little bit about your mental processes can be very helpful getting through life.

In terms of writing and creativity, I might have started to learn how that compost bin on my shoulders processes things. I need variety.

Just like any good compost heap, different ingredients are needed to keep the composting process going and help produce good fertilizer.

So, I guess I need to process different types of garbage… 😁

Don’t ask me how the analogy between composting and my brain became a thing this evening. I couldn’t tell ya.

I’ve learned that I need to work on… something else… sometimes to help get the juices flowing for the something I actually need/want to work on. It’s kind of like looking for something and not being able to find it. If you just quit looking for it – even for just a little bit – you suddenly find what you’re looking for. It’s funny how that works. I think that’s how the creative part of my mind works. Sometimes I need to quit looking for something to find it.

Does that make sense?

Besides, what’s the harm in cranking out some other idea? I might hit on something good.

With that in mind, I think I am going to start some new project… a new ingredient for the compost heap 😉

So, how about y’all? How does the creative part of your mind work?

Type to you later…

  1. Good analogy using compost bin, Scott. These days, with all the distractions, many ideas go into our bins where they lay for a while moldering, before being stirred up to begin fermentation of ideas. I might think of something and then forget it until something triggers that memory again. We do tend to ponder things long term in our house, before acting on them. Happy composting Scott. Allan
