Saturday Creativity Quote — silence and purpose

Creative work often begins during a time of crisis, when we are driven to connect with something deeper inside ourselves. No wonder I like this quote from psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross on finding yourself:

Learn to get in touch with silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences; all events are blessings given to us to learn from. There is no need to go to India or anywhere else to find peace. You will find that deep place of silence right in your room, your garden or even your bathtub.”
— quoted in Yoga Journal (h/t James Clear newsletter)

  1. One of my major distractions would be my Cajun hubby playing Classic Rock music – ALL DAY LONG! ??‍♀️ I love him but I, also, like silence when using my creative side. Oh well, I just have to write overnight when he is asleep. I have heard that sleep is overrated! ??‍♀️
