Consumption versus creation.
What is the perfect balance?
A constant formula I'm always trying to find.
You see, I'm bombarded by thoughts of guilt that I should be creating when I'm consuming.
& when I'm creating and struggling for inspiration I direct myself to consume more.
But when do you stop consuming?
When do the ideas of other people morph into your own?
How much consumption does it take before you lose your vision?
& that's where I'm at.
A bit stuck.
I have reduced my screen time a by quite a bit.
But I'm still feeling disconnected from MY OWN creativity.
So, I'm saying goodbye for awhile.
I don't know for how long.
But I do know that around this time last year I was getting ready for a lot of alone time and a lot of traveling.
& it felt really good.
I created a lot of really good habits in that time.
I set up my life to be lived in the way I wanted.
I found myself.
& I need to feel that again.
For me, the only way to do that is reduce the noise around me.
So, I'm saying goodbye to Facebook & Instagram for awhile.
I'll be logging out and deleting the apps in a couple days but my accounts will still be active. (I may pop in once and awhile to ask my flock some questions about what kind of things you want to see surface on my new website.)
I have no idea how long I'll be gone, but I hope to come back to you with my new website which is under full construction right now.
I've been recipe testing and creating beautiful art for a couple months now, in preparation of it's debut.
This is how I've wanted my website to look since I started but the time it takes was not something I wanted to tackle.
& the control freak deep within me was not keen on hiring it out.
Nor did I want to consult somebody every time I wanted to make a minor change.
So here I am, figuring it all out. & it's going great.
I can't wait to show it to you!
I encourage you to look at how much time you are spending consuming information.
& how little time you are spending creating.
Stop the comparison.
Enjoy your life.
Come back refreshed.
& share your gifts with the world.
Love you all.
