“If I didn’t have my films as an outlet for all the different sides of me, I would probably be locked up.”Angelina Jolie
“Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.”Arnold Schwarzenegger
I’m sipping coffee out of a thick, off-white unassuming diner mug. I like these types of mugs because each sip is like a gentle kiss on your lips.
(You’re welcome for the lovely visual of me making out with a coffee mug ☕️💋 xoxo.)
My 1000th consecutive blog post is coming up and I’ve been thinking a lot about how grateful I am for having started a daily writing habit.
Having an outlet to channel ideas, observations, and work through life has been a worthwhile endeavor.
Ideas flow when you have an outlet to direct them to.
And it doesn’t have to be writing, any creative outlet can be rewarding—martial arts, dancing, electronics, comedy, singing, watercolor, etc.
Some days have been harder than others. But in many ways, it’s the hard days that make expressing yourself through something all the more rewarding. I’ve begun to feel better after I write. Perhaps it’s because I’m checking an important todo off my list, but I think it’s more than that.
I know I have a long way to go—I far from the master writer and storytelling fiend I want to be—but every day I hit publish I’m one step closer.
I would highly recommend expressing yourself creatively in some form or fashion. It starts with simply being about the work but quickly grows into something deeper.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
