Several years ago, I was a young mom struggling with feelings of inadequacy. Life was often overwhelming trying to balance taking care of the needs of those around me and finding time to accomplish my own goals and desires. I vividly remember listening to this talk by Deiter F. Uchtdorf in 2008 and feeling that the message was given just for me. It ultimately inspired me to pursue writing–not because I ever thought I would become a published author, but because I had the overwhelming desire to create something that “did not exist before.”
Is there something that you have been wanting to create? Something that you feel a desire to try doing, but you are afraid that your efforts won’t be good enough, or that you will fail? Take a few minutes to listen to this talk and be inspired. A few of my favorite quotes are listed below.
“The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.”
