As a lover of women empowerment, I knew I had to reach out and write this post about creative living for the sake of anyone with a passion. I have recently finished reading the book, Big Magic and it was almost like a wake-up call. After 14 years of living my day-to-day routine and counting the number of days that I was unproductive, I knew it was time for a change. Little did I know this change would come after reading and analyzing a book in pure solitude over winter break.
Once upon a time, I wanted to create a YouTube channel solely for the intentions of making money. Anyone who has been doing the “YouTube-Lingo”, as I like to call it, for any given amount of time knows it takes a lot of time to get to the point of financially supporting yourself. I, of course, thought life would come easier to me.This YouTube channel I had once created was filled with content that I thought others would enjoy watching. It was at the level where I didn’t create because I wanted to, I created because I felt I had to in order to succeed. I didn’t even like making videos anymore!
Unfortunately, this happens to a lot of YouTubers. This might have even happened to you at some point. Creative living is made for living on the edge. In order to dive into creative endeavors, we must face the obstacle of focusing our mindset on making creative work because we want to. Creative living is not waking up and fulfilling a job because we feel we have to, instead it’s waking up to live to the fullest and explore that passion that you deeply enjoy. If creativity is causing you pain, you’re using it wrong. You and your passion should be working together to create something magnificent that you can keep to yourself or share with others.
All I encourage you to do is take a look at how you view your creativity/talent and identify if you truly have the mindset of creative living. This could include YouTube, singing, blogging, your business, any aspect of your life that may involve others judgment. However, I do have a YouTube channel called Jajjulie7. This channel I have worked great efforts to only post content that I am proud of that I want to share with others. And I think to myself, if viewers don’t like what I’m creating, I move on because I won’t let anything influence the way creativity and I work together. Therefore, don’t let anyone or anything get in the way of you and creativity working together.
Hi, I’m Julie.
Hey lovelies, I’m Julie. I’m 14 years old and in my free time I love working on YouTube, cheering for my high school and traveling. Some might say I’m a busy body but I think it’s all about productivity. Well, there’s a short synopsis of my life. Enjoy!
