Do You Know Rumi?

Rumi

I am constantly inspired by Rumi, a 13th-century Persian poet, theologian, and mystic. I often re-read his poems just to get my own creative, inspired juices flowing. I even incorporated his poetry in our wedding. He is one of my favorites.

This quote speaks directly to my writer’s heart. All too often I am drawn away from my writing practice, wondering if it’s really what I’m meant to do and questioning my abilities. Yet, I am constantly called back by a tiny voice inside. Come back. Sit down. Try again. Write. Write. Write. Pour it out on the page. Begin again. This is where you belong.

Are you listening to the voice calling you back to what you love? If you’re unfamiliar with Rumi and want to learn more, here’s a nice site to explore some of his works. http://www.poetseers.org/the-poetseers/rumi/
