How often do we read a new social media post, that makes us question our worth, as an artist, due to it’s content? A lot. We see what others are seemingly working on, which always appears to be much more than us, instead of realising it’s quality, rather than quantity, that should be our main aim (easier said than done).
We are our own boss as creatives and we might not always feel like it, but we are also our own product. We are the only ones, that can build our own career path in the Arts. Of course, collaboration is vital, but we need to focus on ourselves and what works for us. Perhaps, learning lines for one show, worked well with one method, but for another, you need a totally different approach.
We shouldn’t be hard on ourselves and our progress, as every project is different. One new play might flow and another might be bursts of inspiration, followed by sitting eating snacks and watching a box set. Be true to yourself, this is you unwinding and having some Me Time.
Why is Me Time so important? It gives us time to obtain whatever we need, be it time to think, or to rejuvenate. This time is vital as a human being, as well as a creative. Giving ourselves space to unwind and remember what makes you tick, is what we all need.
Have a beautiful day and be kind 💜
