Hey, everybody! Today is another one of those days when my focus is completely on my ongoing artwork. Needless to say, I have not even attempted to come up with an idea for today’s post. So, once again, I have decided to bring out my journal so that I can share a couple of thoughts with you guys.
I wrote this one a few days ago, after I was done with a live stream on Instagram. I’ve been having a very productive week so far (I hope I don’t jinx it somehow) and I was just glad to have something to look forward to every single day because, sometimes, we really feel like we need that extra push for us to keep it going. I’m sure that a lot of you are feeling creatively blocked these days because inspiration feels like it is at an all-time low, and I am just here to tell you that it’s okay because you don’t always need to look at the bigger picture to keep pushing yourself forward.
“They keep telling me that I cannot make it through the week if my only goal is to make it to the weekend, but that has never been my goal. Not even in the slightest. It makes no difference to me at all! The days and nights now feel like an endless cycle and nothing actually makes any kind of sense. Sometimes, I feel like we’re a few days behind and other times I feel as though the months have just flown past me. It’s very weird how the time keeps passing all of us by these days and none of us even realize it because it feels like we’ve been stuck in the same old loop forever now. And for the first time in forever, I actually have so many things to look forward to. I have so many ideas in my head that I want to work on as soon as possible. But the thing about great ideas is that they take a lot of time to actually work on, no matter how dedicated you are. I could spend day and night trying to make my ideas work and it could go two ways: I could realize my ideas on paper and actually make them work after endlessly working on them, just for the sake of making them work, or I’m going to have to take my own time with them because I don’t want to half-ass them. I am going to take a guess and say that it’s the latter because I feel like I have worked way too hard on this particular artwork to just half-ass it at this point. But, at the same time, I do want to get done with all these ideas in my head before they stop making any sense to me at all. You see the problem here? Even when I have something to look forward to, I am afraid I wouldn’t be able to give all of my ideas the attention they deserve. Then again, they say that if things can go wrong, chances are that they most probably will. But I like my chances. All I know is that when I wake up tomorrow, I have a bunch of ideas that will keep me going through my day, or week, even! But there’s this whole thing about absolutely needing a purpose in life to be able to hold on; it’s so unhealthy because you do not need to loom for a ‘purpose’ in things that have nothing to do with you. Not everything needs to serve a purpose. Sometimes, I wish I had realized these things sooner. It would have saved me so much time and so many self-induced guilt-trips. Well, wiser and older, I guess!”
