There’s one thing you need to make more than anything else.
You need to make time to make.
No more excuses. Everyone is busy. Literally everyone. And a lot of people are more busy than you.
No one has extra time that they don’t know what to do with. We all have the same 24 hours, every single day.
You don’t happen upon extra time, you MAKE extra time. And you certainly have time in your schedule, you just can’t see it now.
If getting creative and making art matters to you, truly matters, then you must make time for it in your life.
Take a close look at your schedule, start tracking how much time you spend on tasks, social media, relaxation, etc every day.
Start making time. Get up earlier, stay up later. Ask your husband or your kids or your roommate to take on more of the chores so you can free up some time. Outsource, cut things out of your schedule, spend less time on wasteful tasks. Do whatever it takes to make the time you need.
Even if you only have five minutes in the morning while you eat your breakfast to do some sketching, that’s something. If you can carve out more time, do it. Don’t wait. Your life is not going to get less busy, less stressful, or less chaotic.
Now is the time to make time.
Making art matters.
Stop making excuses and start making time.
