I’ve been lucky enough to do what I love for a living. I’m hard at work because I’m busy doing the thing I love to do the most – be creative and make things. Over time, there are moments when my favorite thing to do starts looking a little bit like tedious work, and it’s up to me to step back and re-evaluate what I’m are doing, if we’re passionate about it, and what steps I can take to ensure that I stay passionate.
The last month or so has been one of those moments. In a way, it feels like a rebirth. Being passionate about what I’m doing has now become thee priority in my work. I’m reading books about staying passionate, and about working better and more efficiently, so that I can concentrate on doing what I love. Ever since the first time I was asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and I answered “..an artist,” I have been determined to make sure that hope became a reality. Not only did I want to be an artist, I wanted to be someone who was excited about their life, and excited about their work. Then I boiled my life’s goal down to one simple sentence; Live Up To Your Own Expectation.
I intended on living out that simple statement.
