Late Night Flow | Creative Minds
I've always been told I should sleep earlier, it's good for my health. Of course I agree; sleep is amazing but what people don't understand is that the late hours past midnight are my most creative hours. It's when the night is the most calm and quiet. It's a time for me to just be with myself. While the world falls fast asleep, I'm up alone with a pen and paper writing down every creative thought that comes to mind. I use to be afraid of the night, I use to think the night was full of monsters and terror. But as the older I get, the more I see beauty in the night. I see the stars twinkling in the sky, the clouds playing hide and seek with the moon and I hear the peaceful echoes of the wind. I'm so thankful for the night because it reminds me of how creative I am, which is a beautiful thing to embrace. Creativity was something I use to always hide about myself; being a perfectionist I never believed my creative thoughts were good enough for anyone. Then I realized that being creative isn't for others... it's for myself, it's a way for me to express my thoughts, my passions and my dreams. It doesn't matter if others don't see what you see or appreciate what you create, all the matters is that you find an outlet that allows you to express yourself openly, honestly, and freely. Youtube found me and I will always be thankful for that. I love creating content and coming up with new ideas and ways to present my work.
As I sit here at my kitchen table in the middle of the night I think of all the dreams that I am dreaming and all the ideas I want to bring to life. You don't always have to be asleep in order to dream.
Truthfully this post has no point, but it's almost 1am and my mind if flowing with so many beautiful thoughts and ideas and I just wanted to share the process with you guys. Hope you enjoyed reading, and let me know in the comments what your creative outlet is. How do you express yourself?
