365 Inspirations—212: Blank Page

"Creativity is always a leap of faith. You're faced with a blank page, blank easel, or an empty stage."—Julia Cameron

 My cursor is blinking and I'm staring at the blank page. I'm not sure what will come out. I'm on 212 inspirations. Sometimes the posts flow out of me with ease and other days I stare at the white space and wonder how the words will appear.

A blank page is my inspiration today because this empty space contains so much possibility.

Right now I'm enjoying the empty, white space.

Perhaps I need more empty spaces in my life and

more pauses,


moments of nothingness.

I don't know why we are afraid of empty space.

When speaking to others, there is this need to fill the empty space between two people.

Is it fear?

Tonight I'm okay with the blank page. There's so much that I could do with this page, but I'm going to let it be.

Do you ever feel the need to fill empty space with words or are you okay with the silence and blank pages of your life?

  1. I used to always feel the need to fill those spaces but as I get older I am more than ok with the silence and have learned to appreciate it.
