Find other ways to create

Humm. Well I was onto something at some point. I opened this “draft” to find nothing in the body. It’s certainly a provocative title and it’s as true as can be. We as creatives work our faces off in this business to create ads for our clients. By the time we are done with, whatever it is we are working on, there are so many thumbprints all over your idea it’s amazing you even got to where you are. So, my advice; create for you. It’s imperative to find some other outlet where you are the client, account team, project manager, but most importantly the creative on. Create what ever it is you want. Make something as awesome or as awesomely-horrible as you want. find something for you.
I do a few things. This blog is one. There are no proof readers here. haha. I’m sure that run on sentence up there needed some punctuation somewhere. But I wanted you to feel a little exasperated after reading it. It’s an exasperating business – but its fun. And having a creative outlet will keep it that way. I write here to help me translate my ideas into words. I don’t expect a million followers or fame to come from this. It’s a simple outlet. I also take little photoventures every once and a while. I absolutely LOVE being behind a lens. It’s so relaxing to me. Sometimes I even sell those images in my Etsy store. Its simple really – You just need to discover your outlet.

Its been a while …

… And a lot has changed. One thing has remained constant though –the job. And for that I am grateful. I have learned a ton since the last time I’ve made an entry. Too many things to put in a post, so ill focus on one. The original reason for this blog.

That notion was so spot on and I lost sight of it. In the craze of work and the hustle and bustle of life, I lost sight of the single best self improvement idea that I’ve had. It’s time to keep writing. I’m back and I’m going to keep reflecting, thinking and most importantly keep writing. Stay tuned or don’t this bad boy is for me.

Muse

This entry is a little different than the norm. Usually I blog about little things that I notice about myself. Things that make me pause and reflect. But this time, I wanted to use this soap box to tell a friend to go for it. This didn’t come by chance. Go, become the luminary that you are.

You once told me that when you grow up that all you want to be is a Muse. I am here to tell you that you are so much more than that. Those of you who know me, know that I am pretty busy. This one – this person puts me to shame. You motivate me. You make me want to become a better friend, artist, designer, photographer, art director, writer and well – just a better person. I hope I make you want to be a better driver. I wish that I could keep you here, closer to me. But something as bright as you has to be shared. You are larger than life and I love you for it.

So, how does this relate to the blog? They say that good things come to those who wait – and Santa’s real. Good things come to those who take it. Those who step up to the plate and swing. Batter up kid.
