Personal Mad Libs

I'm not as _____________ as I thought I was. That realization makes me _____________. And if I tell you how I feel, you'll probably think I'm ________________.

You say I should ____________ but when I try I'm usually ______________. When that happens, it's easier if I ____________.

Sometimes, I ___________ being ____________.

(Yeah, it's been that kind of week....)

I'm not as creative as I thought I was. That realization makes me a little scared because who am I if I'm not the creative one, AND I really want to make enough money to free Scott from the constant burden earning by writing something really really great, and I hate to think how we will survive financially if I'm not talented enough to make it. And if I tell you how I feel, you'll probably think I'm egocentric.

You say I should just work harder, be more diligent, persevere, but when I try I'm usually drug down by the disappointing lack of inspiration and what that says about me or my relationship with God or I see that what I come up with just isn't as good as so-and-sos. When that happens, it's easier if I don't try. ("Don't try you can't fail" used to be my motto, but I won't let that sentiment fool me anymore!)

Sometimes, I like being free from the expectation that I have any useful talent at all, but only as long as I continue to pray to God that He will be my inspiration and that my hope will be in Him alone.
