Since I’ve started forcing personal creative time in my life again, I find that I actually enjoy my career more again. If I have a client and they want a day that I have booked for a me day, I tell them that day is taken. It’s like switching my phone to airplane mode while I fly. Doesn’t matter what the fuck happens while I’m in the air, for those hours I am unavailable and nothing will change that. I used to feel guilty, but I don’t anymore. Simply to feel the happiness in my fingers while I edit something new that I created purely for personal expression is priceless. I don’t even care if the image that comes out is any good. What matters is that my soul is getting what it needs.
