2019 June 5 Journal
Good lord, it’s Wednesday again?
Ugh. The weeks come and go so quickly and I feel like I accomplish so little. It’s frustrating.
I just realized there are a few phrases I use regularly that sterilize my truth:
“I don’t know” (proceeded by something I’m truly trying to express that I probably actually do know)
The #1 main thing on my mind is streamlining creative processes. Faster, better, writing. Faster, better podcast production. Faster, better photo creation.
I want to be spending less time behind a desk and more time out experiencing my life with the people I love.
The key to this? Self honesty and self love –
I think that the more clear I am with myself about what is and what is not important, the more efficient my editing choices are.
The more I love myself – the more clear my writing is. Stephen King said the root of all bad writing is fear, and loving myself is the antithesis of fear. I know that when my writing is super bullshitty, it’s because I’m caught in the mire of honesty and love. This applies to my podcasting even more so.
If I were to teach a workshop on creativity right now, it would be all about giving my students tools to reach new levels of self honesty and self love. I think those are the blood and breath of creation.
I had a lot of fun making and editing the Five Wives Pride Parade 2019 video. It took longer than I expected, but I so enjoyed it. It’s like choreography – syncing movements to music. It feels good. It’s dance, music, photography, and storytelling all in one. I’d like to make a music video now.
