I think computers stifle our creativity. Maybe that’s a bold statement to make. Yes, computers are often a very valuable tool in allowing that creativity to fully flourish, but they often get in the way of the initial creation.
I’ve had the opportunity to get outside a lot more recently. Of course, that has something to do with the much nicer weather, that in itself can be inspiring.
I’m not anti-computer. Not by a long shot. What I do would not be made possible without them. I need my computer. But sometimes I think I allow it to distract me from exploring my own inner world.
If I don’t know me, then who will? They can’t unless I’m able to embrace the full potential of who I am.
I had slipped into a place of emptiness. It was a deep, dark hole that I didn’t fully know my way out of. I still feel lost without direction a lot of the time, but I think this new realization may be able to help with that.
We need to see the beauty in the world around us, we need to open our eyes and see clearly the person within us, only then will we be able to create freely.
I’ve used my computer as a shield, as a way of protecting myself from having to explore the inner depths of my mind. I guess, in some ways, I’m afraid to know what’s there. But I’m beginning to come around again and I long for the truth, even if it is ugly, even if I’m not who I want to be.
If I know who I am in this moment, even if I don’t like it, then I can change those things to be the person I know I’m intended to be. It may take some time, these things always do. But I want to seek the truth.
Always truth, even when it’s not what I would like to hear.
