I've been experiencing a creative block for the past quarter, and I believe it has to do with how this quarter I focused only on one thing--piano. It sucked the joy out of that one thing for me though. Who knew that specialization impacts so inversely on my life and happiness!
Having multiple paths/ options, and different, varied hobbies have such a positive impact on me. Specializing only causes me to reconsider my line of work, because I feel so dead in my tracks--the freedom gone, the sparkling bubbles flattened. My energy is sapped when I have to stay in one place, do one thing, complete one task...
And what joys I felt when I met new people on the set of the Newsroom! And what joy I felt when I meet new friends and connect with people I used to only pass by all the time but never sit down and talk to!
For my upcoming months in Aspen, I aim to do a few things:
- Connect with like-minded souls
- Be the creative person that I am, no more hiding
- See nature and take pictures, and soak in the immensity of the big broad sky
- Find my inner happiness with God above all else
I would consider triple majoring a major success in my life. And there were obstacles in place, bureaucratic administrative roadblocks. However, I kept to what I was doing, and I took classes when I was not supposed to, and here it is! I have done it!
I need to follow this same philosophy. If I think I can do it, then I will be able to do it!
