How To Overcome Feeling Stuck or Burned out? Take a Pause and Step Back

Are you feeling stuck or burned out?

Today I want to share with you an excerpt from my book “Just Be Inspired.” I speak about the importance of stepping back when you start feeling stuck or burned out.

“Make a pause now and then, step back and enjoy your creation. Take your time to be silent and listen to the angels sing.

There is something precious about stepping back. When we step back, we get a clearer perspective of the whole. Every part of the composition will let you know precisely why it is there. As a painter, when I step back, I find it easier to observe and find mistakes. I can tell what belongs to my painting and what doesn’t. I tend to paint big canvases. I need to step back, look in the mirror from a distance. And how much beauty there is in the distance!

In real life, things work the same way. We need to allow that pause. We need to remember the whole, the big picture, the composition. We need to realize why we started doing what we are doing in the first place. When we work on our creations up close, we are listening to our hearts. Our inspiration guides us. Choosing colors, brush strokes, intensity, light, shadow, bright, dark. Every choice we do follows that beautiful, divine inspiration. Something magnificent happens when we step back and take the time to be silent. We get to observe and enjoy, without criticism.

Have you ever cried of joy after finishing one of your works? I have too. After I finish an artwork, I take a while of silent meditation in front of it. Whether it’s a painting, sculpture, exhibition, or article, I can hear music; I can listen to the universe, like a song of joy in my heart. There it is—another manifestation of the creative spirit. Of universal love, a fruit of the soul. For a moment, someone connected with the divine. And the fruit of that connection is that canvas, sculpture, or book. What a marvelous moment that is, when the angels sing.”
