Last week I was HUNGRY for creativity. Creating is what makes me truly happy and when I don’t create I feel a little bit lost. I also think that this is the case with everyone – not just creative people per se. It’s just that some of us accept our “roles” in the family or society and others can’t quite fully let go of their ever-growing expansion. I’ve always loved creating. As a kid I was obsessed with sewing, as a teenager I was a bit restricted to creativity (school and where I was growing up), in my early twenties I was heavily into music and now? Now I’m expressing myself in the way I’ve always loved expressing myself – with my style. PS there’s another 5 random facts about me in this post. Having my own platform to express this freely is the like food for my soul that feeds my creativity daily. I get hungry when I’m unable to create exciting photography or when externalities like weather or greasy hair that I’m lazy to wash (yes that’s a thing) affect my motivation. I’m not going to lie, I got a bit bored, uninspired and lazy during snow week. I couldn’t even be bothered taking pictures of some of the beauty products at home. When you’re pretty much stuck at home with nowhere to go, all events, freelance work deadlines and even family visits cancelled – what else is there to do? Maybe a week of PJ’s, Netflix and plenty of food was needed but boy I missed creating. This week I’m feeling so excited about creating new content, mail deliveries (there are many due to backlog) and being outside again with my dog. LONG dog walks at last, shopping, shooting street style looks AND even enjoying some sunny spells.
Moral of the story and what lesson I learnt? Don’t let the externalities affect me so much and try to look for inspiration even when there seems to be none.
Have a great weekend everyone!
