This can be scary, because it’s usually unexpected. But the good news is that it will open up the floodgates of change and renewal, and your creative river will begin flowing again.
You may find the process of change painful, but if you can remind yourself to trust the process, you’ll come through stronger. When your routine or way of thinking gets dismantled, it’s a sign that it’s time to rebuild and become stronger.

Then you can rebuild something stronger and more magnificent in its place.
