Let Your Creativity Blossom

And the day came

when the risk to remain tight in a bud

was more painful

than the risk it took to blossom.

    This says it all, taking risks in life move us out of bud into the full blown blossom. Beautiful photo with a beautiful quote.

      Yes! And I love the idea that there’s a point at which it’s no longer viable to remain in bud. Thanks for your comment.

    This is a motivational poster I could use over my desk. Better than that damn thing with the puppies…

    Sorry to be glib, but it’s a defense mechanism that kicks in when my favorite creativity-themed blog author hits close to home. Great quote.

    I love how staying safe in the bud is seen as a “risk” — safety is overrated, at least in terms of creativity.
