PLEASE HAVE AN AFFAIR



This morning, I decided to have an affair, I prefer to be open about it. 

My partner is ok with the idea; whether I stay in this affair for 12 months or 3 years, she will emotionally support me throughout by my side.

Now, the affair I am referring here people, is nothing to do with someone outside my relationship, but rather with my own craft, my creativity.

I am going to treat it like people treat their lover, always, finding time for it, anywhere, everywhere!!! They are committed regardless of the consequences.  They become obsessed with it, to the point they miss it the very second it is gone. Even if there is 10 minutes, that is enough to simply make out.

As I read recently in Big Magic by E. Gilbert,  “Stop treating your creativity like it’s a tired, old, unhappy marriage (a grind, a drag) and start regarding it with the fresh eyes of a passionate lover.” 

So I decided that this year, 2017, I am only making one single resolution, there is no space for anything else. “You always achieve your top priority, everything else is disregarded in the second month // It happens to me every year” 

My resolution is to “To have a long and exciting affair with my portrait business, my craft”

Therefore, anything you set your intention for this year, treat it like an affair! If you haven't had one, then this is your chance to do so.

Just fall in love with your hobby, and craft!!

HappyNew Year to everyone
