When I’m feeling really down, it’s usually because I’m not doing what I love doing. Why do I feel so stale and overwhelmed?? Maybe it’s because you haven’t picked up your guitar in 3 weeks? Oh, right.
It’s often the things we feel called to do, that we end up actually doing the least.
Our most important things can easily get slide lined if we let them. Paying your rent is important. Doing well at your job is important. Spending time with your family is important, and on and on ad infinite. But not making time for your creative outlet is the same as giving up on your creativity.
Do you really want to wake up 5 years from now and your fears and todo lists have held you back from creating?
What would make you happier? Working on your craft everyday like it means the world to you, or working on your craft only when the timing is right.
The timing is never right. There will always be responsibilities and obstacles that will try getting in your way of what you love. Are you going to let that get in your way?
If we don’t prioritize doing the things we love, who will??
You hear the phrase, ‘spend each day like it’s your last’. I like to get even more specific:
Create each day like it’s your last.
Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
