The Messy Middle Part of The Creative Process
We are remodeling our old bathroom. It isn't really because it was a dream of ours. The house is old and the tiles were splitting apart from water damage. We are 3 months in, and it is too late to turn back. We are in the messy middle part of a creative project. How about you? Where are you in the messy middle? Career? Creative project?
Being in the messy middle without clear answers and results isn't easy. However, that is where the real magic happens. Just look at the butterfly for an example from nature. I just learned that the butterfly literally turns into goo inside of its cocoon. Now that is a messy middle part!
During that time, its entire DNA changes, and it emerges a completely new creature. Whatever that change is in your life, that you are in the midst of, keep going! You too, will emerge completely transformed.
