I wrote a post over at The Parking Lot Confessional about making time for creativity. This is something I’ve struggled with for years. It wasn’t until I started taking my dreams seriously that I figured out how to begin living a creative life. If you struggle with balancing responsibilities with your creative ideas, check out my post.
Here’s a snippet.
A lot of people I talk to mention their wish to fulfill their dreams. They want to write books, pursue music, art, lose twenty pounds, run a marathon, etc. And they say, “Someday,” in that forlorn kind of way. And when I encourage them to make the time, they say, “No, no. I just can’t right now. I have (fill in the blank — kids, a job, a dirty house, bills to pay, to diet, to be perfect, etc.).” To which I say, Phooey.
I hope you find it helpful. And I’d love to hear how you make time for your dreams.
