Is It Possible to be Too Creative?!

Do you ever find yourself at a creative roadblock? Lately, I’ve had a ton of ideas running through my head. I’m jotting them down, planning them, starting them, not finishing them, and then starting something new.

For instance, today I started rearranging some of my living room plus reorganizing my craft closets. And then I tried to figure out how I could redecorate my office. All the while knowing I had to post a blog soon, plus draft an upcoming post.

I have a theory that because I think so much, I have a decreased risk of Alzheimer’s when I get old. Kinda like exercise for the brain. Although it could work the opposite. Hypertrophy of the mind. Perhaps our brains are only allotted a certain amount of thoughts/processes within a lifetime, and mine could thus expire prematurely. That one day, my mind will just say, “Enough, woman!”

Yeah, this is why I should meditate more often. I’ve got a severe case of “monkey-mind.”

I guess I should be thankful I have an abundance of creativity vs. not enough. But I’ve still gotta rope this in. Tomorrow is a new day and I shall come up with a solid gameplan on all these projects. Tonight, I will unwind by meditating and then browsing everyone else’s creativity, blogs, sites, etc. —and resisting the urge to be inspired. 🙂

Do you ever find yourself at a creative roadblock? How did you power through it?
