I'm in a part-time funk but it's leading to new ideas. I'm making some different stuff now. Excited to introduce it.
I think I'm just figuring out what my purpose is again. I'm redefining what my free-time is for for the most part. I want to create things that make positive change. I also want to put my time in for my friends and family.
I'm not in a bad funk. I love my job and I'm having fun. Every day there's a new challenge that needs my help to be overcome. Also every day, I get less pressured to "climb the ranks" at a speedy pace. After reading The Millionaire Next Door, I've learned a bit about saving and what matters in your money. I'm not money savvy, all I know is that I should save. I do save a good amount so, that pressure to climb the ranks purely for money doesn't make sense. It's an interesting book, I do recommend.
I've also been meeting a lot of people and making new friends. It's been really cool. I love laughing, like if you know me in real life, I'm almost always making a joke or laughing.
That being said... I think I realized that with some people, I would stick around but I never truly would laugh with them? It was me making them laugh, I was always sort of the entertainment. So I lessened that. It's not like they're cut out, it's all love, but I just focused on other stuff. Shrug emoji. I'm getting better at it though. Sometimes I let people waste my time, but I see it more clearly now such that I'm wasting less time than before.
Anyway, making new friends has been so awesome. It also makes me truly appreciate (and miss) my friends with time in and seniority. Missing people definitely hasn't been a feeling that I've shared the past couple years so, the feeling is welcome. It's fresh and I like new experiences. I love telling those people that I miss them, I don't do it often because that would get tiresome but it's such a great statement. You have to suck up your pride (accepting humility is a great exercise) and just go for it right?
Art wise, I'm finishing up a few projects for shipment. Shrug emoji x2. I'm excited to use blogging more to get my points across. That'll be fun. I have a lot of ideas.
