I guess this is a Sunday post this week.
I ended up staying out a lot longer than planned yesterday.
Which also brings up a different point, I was sitting at my computer yesterday morning and sat there for a few hours trying to write out a post. As you can see, that went over really well.
I decided that forcing/cranking one out for the sake of cranking one out was not going to go well for anyone and left.
What works best for me is when it feels organic. It has that overall feel of being authentic and interesting. And I wasn’t feeling it that day. Guess that’s what happens when you’re a human being and not a machine.
Every once in awhile I get really concerned with what I write, create, or share. I worry whether or not it’s good enough, relevant, helpful, or something anyone will want to read at all. Sometimes I get really self-conscious about it.
So when that starts happening I try to let it go (I still really like that Frozen song by the way, I’m one of those people).
Cause if you think about it, who gives a shit anyways?
You have to remember, whether or not you care about what others think of you, they’ll still like or dislike you regardless of that factor. It’s their right to their own opinion. You have no control over that just as much as no one has control over your thoughts or opinions. It doesn’t matter if it’s reasonable.
As always, I recommend to just do the best you can. Live your life and be happy. It’s kind of idiotic to do anything otherwise. Wait, scratch that. It’s really idiotic to do anything otherwise. Who are you living for? Yourself or for other people’s expectations of you? Are you going to be that person that stays in a job they hate for decades and then one day freaks out and burns down the building? Cause I can’t deal with that. Especially if you’re in any building I’m working in.
Try not to worry too much about being stuck in one place for too long either. Enjoy it while you can, take what works for you, and leave the rest. Plus it’s not like anyone’s forcing you to do anything against your will right?
Part of the creative process will always involve self-doubt. It’s key to make sure you work through it and not let it consume you. We’ve all been there before.
One huge thing that helped me work through it all was to keep going. Don’t stop creating. Not only do you gain a lot of experience and practice from simply committing regularly but you will definitely improve. And learn. And grow.
What do you have that’s better to do anyways?
You have all the time in the world to improve on yourself. You do not have time to waste on anything that isn’t serving you.
Cheers to living,
