Sometimes, we just need to be nurtured.
by Todd Foley
Ironically, I contributed zero creativity to this post. That’s okay. Sometimes, we need to take time to be nurtured.
That said, I want to turn your attention to Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love. In this TED clip, she shares about nurturing creativity.
“Don’t be afraid, don’t be daunted. Just do your job. Continue to show up for your piece of it. ‘Ole!’ to you, just for having the sheer human love and stubbornness to keep showing up.”

To each their own. I thought it was a great talk.
Reblogged this on akaEllisFisher and commented:
I found this out there in the blogosphere, and it hit the spot for me. Regardless of “truth”, it works. (and seriously, who knows what truth is. Even physicists and engineers who like to think there’s absolute truth out there really don’t know any more about truth than how to manipulate what’s all ready here in the physical. They know nothing of what’s not physical. An extraordinarily limiting and shallow understanding, if I may say so. Not “unworthy”, just really limiting.)
Any way, I digress. After listening to this, I realize that my genius probably thinks she’s been retired and is living in Tahiti somewhere. Or maybe she’s on the verge of starvation through neglect, or has just become a couch potato and is simply terribly out of shape like me. Whatever the case, we will have a talk. Once she understands that I love her and she’s needed again, I know she’ll be delighted to come back!
I loved this talk. It hit the spot for me. Thanks.
Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the reblog btw. And I agree, she had some great things to say.
