My Muse went missing for a while. Abandoning me for what felt like months. While she was gone, my creative soul could not create. Was this writers block?
A health issue interfered with my creativity, causing my Muse to stay away. Not only was my writing suffering, all of my creative outlets were turned off.
After a bout in the hospital, while I was home recovering, there was a moment when I felt her presence. It was subtle, more like a twinge. It had been so long, I almost didn't' recognize her. Then one day, unexpectedly, she surprised me and dropped in for a long visit. Oh, how I missed her. I welcomed her with open arms and open heart. She was a old friend returning and it felt great. We made up for lost time, catching up on all that we had missed.
Life still distracts me most days, preventing my Muse from just dropping in. But now, I make time just for her. She has become a critical part of of my well-being and happiness. She drops in more often and sometimes for longer periods of time. All is creative with the world.
When my Muse drops in, the world slips away, taking with it all of life's distractions and stress. I can now play and let go.
My advice - leave your door open, you never know when she will just pop in for a visit.
