I’ve recently come up with an idea, and it’s the BEST idea I’ve ever had. I have spent all of my time thinking about it. I’ve eaten with it, slept with it, and breathed it in. But, now that I have invested all this time and energy in it, suddenly, I am languishing. Does this happen to you? I’ve heard this is a well-traveled road by many creatives. A lot of times it’s because of five ravens that caw and claw inside our heads. “I’m stuck.” “I don’t know what to do.” “I’m lazy and don’t want to do more.”
What do you want for Christmas? This question is asked by every family to each of its members every holiday season. It’s like a universal question. No one knows what anyone really wants. And this year, no one even remembers what anyone got last year. Are we becoming a society of wants and not needs? Has materialism really finally gotten such a foothold in this world that nobody even needs anything — they just want stuff? Stuffitis as spoken of by Dave Ramsey is that desire to own something in the misguided assumption that it will bring us unending happiness.
