Uploads from My Sketchbook

 

This is what I do when I am not writing or working on editing projects. Just for fun, but I feel like it is important to share. Sometimes once we choose a career, especially a creative career, hobbies seem wasteful. Like, why would you do that if you cannot earn money doing it? The market controls our lives, in this way.

When I draw or write for fun, I remember why I wanted to go down this path in the first place, why it matters to me, why I work and live to begin with.

My advice, then, this month is: Work to Live do not Live to Work. Find your joy during, after, and before you go through the chores of adulthood.

We are given an average of 75 years of life. By 25, in the US, we have all our legal rights. That leaves us with 50 years left. Make sure to use those 50 years living.

  1. Really loved the sentiment behind this post; its true that we can end up feeling guilty for simply enjoying our hobbies when we’re also trying to pursue them as careers. Really good post, gave me something to think about today!
