This photo popped up in my Instagram earlier this week, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. A full time job and various freelance gigs has really taken a toll on my personal creative projects, but I’m ready to start investing in me. Don’t get it twisted, I definitely see the value in contributing to other people’s “stuff,” but when all is said and done, I’d rather be putting that effort into something I’m solely responsible for. Having the complete freedom to write, paint, build, dream, mend and create my own stuff is a privilege I’m refusing to take for granted from here on out.
