Sorry, I’m a bit angry because, I had drafted this post and it was lit, I promise. Not too long, not too short, just perfect. But technology failed me…..AGAIN.
I promise this thing told me it saved. arrggghhhh!
Anyway, so I might as well get into it and make it more interesting for you to read. Yahhh! You can tell my thoughts are a bit animated based on the way I type. Today, I will be sharing with you my top 5 Creative goals for the next year.
Recently, my life, emotions and things have been a bit weird and my approach to figuring shit out was to rewrite my 5year plan. It is interesting how necessary this was for me, I realised the things that interested me a while ago did not even appear in my plan at all. To be fair, I loose interest in things quite easily.
Asides the usual personal, career, spiritual and financial goal, this time I added creative goals. I realised my health and spirit was a lot drained because I was not feeling creatively fulfilled. I don’t know if you know this feeling. Google says its a path to some kind of depression. I realised I needed to pick myself up, for myself and the people around me. So I will be sharing with you 5 of those goals. They are very simple and straight forward and I may not need to expand on them as much.
Make time for your art
Experiment with new materials
Be more open and curious about the world around you
Practice with intent
Have a reservoir of ideas and be okay with creative blocks.
The entire process of being an artist or creative is not ever supposed to be a rosy one. Sometimes, things do not work out the way we plan. Most importantly for me, I want to be satisfied with what I make regardless of where it is commercialised or not. If any, I am almost not caring much for the monies attached. Right now, thats a good space for my head to be in. Every week, I want to measure how much I have improved in something. I want to practice not just for the gram but for myself. No more excuses, I have just this life and all I want to do with it really is love, and create.
Just wanted to include this lovely picture of my new shoes from kkerele. lol! yup! I divert.
I believe, if at the end of the year i.e August 2019 I am able to hold on to these goals and do them, I will be so much happier in my soul. Whatever kind of Artis you are, a designer, painter, stylist, photographer or whatever, I think these are good for you too.
I will love to know what your goals are too. I will also love to shout out Gozie for being a lowkey inspiration for me in terms of her consistency at working. You should check out her work if you like paintings. Thank you for reading this. Screenshot this post and put on your instagram stories, I will really love to see and repost your pages too.
