Writing is my passion. A day where I haven't written anything at all feels like a lost day for me, even when the writing is only for five minutes.
It is my passion.
And in that passion, I need to keep reminding myself of something I have discovered recently:
The better I take care of myself, the more creative I can be.
This quote has been with me ever since. It has been my guide, and even on days where I felt really low, I wrote my blog posts and my poetry. I kept journaling and worked on other projects.
And I take better care of myself. Last night, for instance, we were supposed to go to the movies. But, my asthma went haywire during the day and I said I couldn't go.
It feels like a big bummer because I wouldn't go see a movie I have been looking forward to for ages.
But I took care of myself. And that is a bloody victory.
