Inspiration from Re:Create...a defining moment

Today is a defining day for me.  Today is the day I stop saying that I’m a “wanna-be”.  Today is the day I stop saying that “I just like to write”. 

Today is the day that I claim the label “creative”.  I am a creative.  I AM a creative.  Let me say it again, I am a CREATIVE. 

So, I wrote a poem about it…

Today I Call Myself a Creative
Today is a day of definition!
A day to make a choice
The turning toward a new direction
The birth of a new voice

Today is a day of battle!
The war that rages inside of me
“NO YOU CAN’T” is yelled by the oppressor
While the Truth whispers, “this is who you were made to be”
Today is a day of imagination!
Of allowing my eyes to see
The potential of where He is leading
The movement of Him inside of me

Today is a day of conquering!
The fear that has tied my hands
That has kept me from the fullest life
Already written for me in His plans

Today is a day of momentum!
No more waiting for the ideas to come
It is time now to work, to focus, to move
To risk…to create…to become.

                                                “In the beginning God created…” Genesis 1:1
**To Michael Hyatt, Ken Davis, Pete Wilson and Randy Elrod…thank you for giving me the courage, through your examples and your words this week, to finally claim this truth and step into it.  The Re:Create cruise will always stand out as a defining moment in my life.


  1. Kim - this is priceless. Hang on to this and let it be a reminder to keep going.

    War of Art.. it will kick your butt.

  2. I must be a compassionate empathic - your poem made me cry!

  3. Yes, you are a Creative! So glad you are stepping into this.

    And I fully agree: War of Art, baby.

  4. Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so thrilled, honored, humbled...and I have chills going down my spine at this very moment!!

    From one creative to!!

  5. This is fantastic. I'm so proud of you. And I totally believe that you will do whatever you set your mind and heart to do. No doubt.

    Plus, you've now got a whole "tribe" (in the words of Seth Godin) to cheer you along the way. How fun is that?

    I might add that I'm also glad to finally see a CREATIVE in my family tree. (Haha) Go for it! I'm cheering.
