I have had this patio furniture for over 2 years. It was sitting in my basement because I was afraid that it would be ruined by the rain. Looking back, my reluctance to bring these items outside seems silly.
They add depth to my backyard patio and provide much needed seating.
Yesterday, I eagerly strolled through the Nursery section of Home Depot scouring the aisles for plants that benefit from basking out in the sun. Fortunately, I managed to find a few such plants along with a couple of colorful flower pots.
Originally, I had planned to just arrange the flower pots and declare my backyard patio to be complete. However, the wannabe designer living inside of me is itching to add more depth to the space. Bring on the outdoor lights, refurbished patio furniture, and Shepherd's hook.
Creativity can be scary...because once you walk upon its road there is no going back to the way things were before. Each time you veer of Creativity road to follow more mundane pursuits, you find yourself longing to be back on it. Sometimes, getting back on it can be both difficult and scary. Your family, day gig, or other responsibilities can put your creativity on a tight time budget.
If you step back onto Creativity Road after a long hiatus, you may worry that opportunities have already passed you by. Also, it may seem that the other path walkers are WAY ahead of you on Creativity Road.
The good news is that it is never too late. You may have to adjust your grand creative visions to something more easily scalable.
As far the other path walkers...wish them well and move forward towards your own destiny.
