So my creative work comes in third on my priorities list. Some people might call that a losing plan, but for me if I don’t have my health or my loved ones, then I’ve lost as well. So with these values and priorities in place – health, family, work. And as a stay at home parent, which I’m claiming as a full time job, my goal while I’m creating is to find ways of making work and life coexist. I feel that’s the best you could ask for, because I think work life balance is actually garbage. I don’t think i’ll ever truly stop doing the work I love or look forward to holidays away from it. I think that’s what happens when you find work you are passionate about and you work for yourself. Take out the balance part and call it life’s work instead… maybe. Your life is your work, and not the other way around.
