Like the volcano or the Phoenix, the creative process is an inferno that makes room for something new, something brilliant, something lovely.
It’s messy. It’s bloody. It’s demanding. It’s rigorous.
But, it’s also human.
We destroy things not out of hatred but out of love — to till the soil and plant the seeds of our vision.
So, when you find yourself feeling self-destructive don’t panic. Instead, reflect. What vision are you subconsciously making room for?
