Hi, guys! If you usually read this blog, you know my love for Steven Universe, and if you didn’t, now you do. Sorry, I like to start the week with irrelevant jokes. The title of this post it’s from the first verse of a song from an episode of the show, Mindful education. It’s a song about thoughts, “flexibility, love and trust”. No need to say, as everything else that sounds wise, it’s a Garnet’ song. Songs about wanting to be stronger, to fight and to overcome sadness come from Pearl.
But, why I was thinking about this particular song?
Well, yesterday I was talking to my husband about my current difficulties keeping this blog updated and having creative projects that I don’t feel like abandoning halfway, and with his disarming pragmatism, he told me that a motto like “finish what you started” is a brutal simplification. You should work on a project until it exhausts itself. Sometimes, it happens when you complete it, sometimes it happens when it’s clear it won’t ever be finished. To him, I shouldn’t feel guilty for not completing something that does not bring me joy or even a sense of accomplishment while I work on it. And I think he’s right.
Being creative should be something that helps me feel free, now that I have a job to make me feel useful to my family and money independent. But I think I also need my best friend pointing out things I can’t see by myself.
So, “here comes a thought”: for a long time, I scheduled my creative work to keep the blog updated but now I think it should be the other way around. I will schedule my creative work as it needs to be scheduled to go on nicely and I’ll use the blog to talk to the world and, when something is ready, I’ll share it here to know what you, fantastic guys and girls, think about it. Thank you for reading and liking and commenting. Thank you for your precious time. Have a wonderful week.
