This whole documenting my creative journey thing with the Elijah and Crumpet kids book came off the rails at the end of last year. It started with the Australian bushfires and has merged into this global pandemic situation. Depression, fear, anxiety, stress are the worst things for creativity. And I’ve been waking up everyday, with an overwhelming sense of dread in my heart about the future.
So I recently decided to limit my news scrolling down the rabbit hole of despair and focus on the good stuff I can put back into the world rather than obsessing over the negative and focus on the now. I’m still going to stay up to date on what’s going on, but it’s gotta have a limit or I’m just feeding my fear. I need to focus my attention on the things that I can do, rather than focusing on things that are out of my control. So it’s time to get the Elijah & Crumpet kids book wrapped up.
