Last night I took one of those free online courses (anyone else seeing these free workshops floating around on Facebook these days?) and she gave a piece of advice that kind of struck me: Do what naturally works for you.
I sat there pondering this for a moment. What works for me? This workshop was about starting your own creative business, and I couldn't help but think, "but I'm not sure I want to do that." Me? I don't want a huge creative business and tons of employees. ♀️
It was this huge moment of freedom for me. I mean, we live in this start-up world where everyone and their mother wants to start their own business and make it big. But I'm not sure if I want that. When it comes to my creativity, I like writing on my own. I like researching and creating stories and inspiring people with words. Sure people will come along in the process, but during the work, I like to fly solo. That's what naturally works for me.
Maybe you think I'm insane, but for me, I finally felt okay in my work situation. Sure, I have my goals, but I no longer felt this insane pressure to make what I do into some huge media empire. Instead, I decided to enjoy it and take my time. Because that's what works for me.

you changed my life in so many ways; you gave me a reason to live, you filled my emptiness and replaced it with so many good things that no one else could’ve wished for. i cannot wish myself anyone better than you. you have made the previous things in my life mean nothing compared to what you have given me. you are the best thing that has ever happened to me, and i still feel that way every single day even if we are arguing with each other from time to time, because i know the truth deep down in my heart. i will always take care of you, look after you and always be there for you through everything.
