I've been spending a lot of time lately thinking about how I miss creating things. But like a slew of other things in my life, my time spent creating is subject to chronic procrastination. This realization has led me to wonder: why do I continue to put off doing something that makes me feel better about life?
I came to the conclusion last night: creating things terrifies me. Writing terrifies me. Drawing terrifies me. This one resolution scares me more than my other two: run a marathon & do more yoga. Because everyone with an ounce of creativity and the urge to make things has two problems: a huge ego and high expectations. And no matter what I do, it's never good enough. So maybe rather than a resolution to create more, I need to resolve to be easier on myself.
In the meantime, I'll be buying art supplies on art supplies on art supplies.
