On the Creative Pep Talk podcast, I was introduced to The 100 Day Project. The founders, Elle Luna and Lindsay Jean Thomson, shared inspiring stories from people who participated in the past. I have decided to join in this 5th annual event.
All are welcome to join. From what I have seen on the website, your daily creation is posted through Instagram. All posts include #the100dayproject and a second hashtag that is unique to your project. Mine is going to be #hundredhaiku!
How does this relate to mental health and faith?
I believe that God has given humankind a unique capacity to create. We are all producers. Unfortunately, many people label people with mental illness as “consumers”.
During my darkest depressions, I reminded myself that even my worst experiences may be opportunities for me to “produce”. It may not happen in the midst of my worst symptoms, but I maintain my faith in being part of God’s creation and in my capacity to create.
Please consider joining me on Tuesday, April 3. Spring has arrived. Easter is a reminder of resurrection and the triumph of eternal life over death.
You are a creator.
