Routine is killing the creative self

Don’t let yourself, anyone else or anything to destroy your creativity. Your inner creative child has been with you since your birth and still is, maybe she’s a bit lost at moments, but she never leaves you. You just need to let express herself.

There are moments in life when routine takes over. Everything is ticking like clock. Second by second, minute by minute and it goes like that in the same direction over and over again…after a while, you realize that hours, days, weeks, months or even years have passed and then the thought wanders around your mind – where did the time fly?

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

-Steve Jobs

It didn’t fly anywhere. Time has passed and it will continue to go, as usual, it is you. You chose to spend your time in ways that you didn’t even notice and distinguish the miraculous existence of each day. You chose to switch on your own autopilot mode. In some moments it can be a huge relief but if you are living like that every single day, it is not a life, it is your own created disguised hell with beautiful props. There is no purpose to live like that. Every single day, when it’s over, makes your life a bit shorter. Would you like to live forever? I wouldn’t because the beauty of life is the point that we know – we are not immortal. Every day has been given to you, that you can make the best out of it. It is up to you, it’s your decision. If you would live forever, what would be the point after waking up even get out of the bed? But would you really like to spend eternity through vegetation? It would be constant boredom and silent, never-ending suffering. Even if it’s not endlessness, why would you want to spend your life like that…

Real life. Yes, understandable, you have your responsibilities, duties, attachments and so on, so you put aside, for some time, the things you love for those you have to do. Nothing wrong with that, it’s life, but remember that it will always be like that, there won’t be an any better time to start doing the things your heart beats faster for because there will always be circumstances that won’t match with your dreams or expectations for your own life. There is only one way. Get a grip, do what you have to do also including things you love with your best intention. You have to express yourself, let that inner child take over, not entirely but give her some discretion.

Otherwise, your time will pass by like a barely noticeable summer breeze and routine will kill your creative self.

A little short film about this subject as well for you, guys 🙂

P.S. I’m not against education system, at least not in general, in this film my focus is more on the will to be unique, stick with own beliefs and do not take on the pressure of society.

Slow down

Living your dream, living every single day to the fullest, being the best version of yourself, helping others, doing what you’re passionate about, working hard…yes, it is great and you should do that, but…there is always a little “but” somewhere, while doing that, don’t forget to enjoy the moment, to be where you are at this exact moment, to take a deep breath and feel the gratitude for what you already have, that comes in and out with your breath.

It is good to work towards your goals, dreams, and life you want to see, but at the same time, it is necessary to embrace the moment. Feel the love that it gives to you.

“Racing isn’t about how long it takes you to get from the start to the finish, it’s the adventure you have along the way, the people you meet, and the unique moments you share.”

-Simon Wheatcroft

I admire and respect people who strive to achieve their goals and do their utmost to achieve them, however, it is important not to become obsessed with it, and in times not to take it so seriously and be where you are right now.

Sometimes, even though, most of the times I like what I do, I have to slow myself down, because every now and then I caught myself with too many thoughts, like, what I should do, what would be the best for me and others, what can I improve etc, and then I realize, that in this way I am not really living and enjoying my life to it’s fullest. It’s impossible to be truly happy unless you live in present. Now I have learned to notice and recognize the triggers and return myself to the present moment.

Take time to see your surroundings, enjoy the time with people who care about you and you care about them. Accept and spread love, because in the end of the story, the most valuable “things” in your life will be the moments, which you spent with your loved ones, those moments that taught you a lot, those passionate moments in which your heart began to beat faster…the moments in which you enjoyed the little things of life and enjoyed that particular moment. Not how much money you earned, how many books you wrote, how many countries you visited, what kind of house you bought and newest gadgets and so on. It’s not about things or numbers, it is about the journey of life and the feelings along the way.

“The moment we stop fighting it, the moment we embrace what we feel for one another, will be the moment we finally start living.”

– Romeo B. Cameron
