It took for me to be locked in a literal "Cage" with lots of money to realize I must create rather than consume. I use the word consume in all of its interpretations, buy less, eat less, consume less imagery. Utilize the resources I already have; appreciate them. Not only spend time with my family but actually be in the moment with them, and appreciate and value then even more than my resources or possessions.
While the work of others I admire may be exhilarating and downright inspiring, I become weary and doubtful of my own creations. Hence the goal to consume less imagery, social media can be a double edged sword seriously. Inspiring yet also intimidating, I'm the kind of person who can't help but compare. Not just my work with others but any facet of life, terrible habit that is just hard to rid myself of.
