One of my favorite movie quotes is from “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.” The young man trying to make a go of the hotel says,
In India we have a saying:
Everything will be alright in the end. If it’s not alright, it is not yet the end.
In the creative process, we sometimes get stuck because we are too focused on outcomes. Worrying about the outcome can absolutely stop me in my tracks. I had to do some computer work last week, and the outcome of the proposals is very important to me. It was hard even getting started.

My sister reminded me of one of my favorite sayings I learned from a wise friend. “You have enough, you do enough, and you are enough.” We are all enough. We all have enough. And we all do enough. Trust in the process and let go of the outcome. Everything will be alright in the end. If it isn’t alright, it isn’t the end.

By the way, I’ve learned that the outcome isn’t always what I expected or even hoped for. But, especially in the creative process, it is always ALRIGHT.
