I like to help people
Truly, I enjoy helping others find their passions, but it’s mine that I have left behind. I can’t remember the last time I sat down to write a story and create a different world. Crafting stories and building worlds is what I truly love to do. How do I get back to it? I need to change something.
My world has shifted.
I wake up, work out, go to work. After work, I go home, watch TV and maybe eat dinner. On the weekends I tend to get a bit more creative. How? I write blog posts, film videos, and practice photography. I forget about working out, I don’t think of work, and I enjoy my limited freedom.
The weekends are my favorite. Isn’t that the case for most of us?
I want to try something new. I’m going to limit myself on how much of the internet I consume every day, and how much TV (aka Netflix) I watch. Instead of watching a new episode of Black Mirror, I’m going to pick up a new book and read a chapter.
Stimulating my mind.
It’s what I need. This past week I started to learn Italian. I’m 6% fluent according to DuoLingo. Here I come, Italy. I have a new skincare routine, and working out has become a pretty awesome routine in my life. Now I just need to get back to doing what I love. I love writing. Books, too. Change is necessary for me to grow.
Change is good.
How am I going to get back to my passion?
I’m going to:
- Dedicate 20-30 minutes to writing anything once a day
- Read a chapter a day
- Complete a lesson a day in Italian, so I’m not 100% ignorant and lost when I go to Italy someday
- Watch less TV
- Spend less time on the internet
- Slowly learn how to weave
- Begin to learn to code on the weekends. HTML, where you at?
We all have the same 24 hours a day. I want to make mine worthwhile. How do you decompress? What’s your favorite way to be creative? Do you have a routine?
