“I hate structure. I want freedom!”
[Hi! if you’ve landed here this week, I’m playing with my site! this is how I create… sorry if it’s confusing… but poke around… or just email me! kelly (at) kellypratt.com!]
But creative entrepreneurs need systems, structure + personal rituals to support their creative lives…
Freedom is not the same thing as “free time.” Like a dog with a scent, one thing leads to another and another and another. You look back at the end of your day feeling unfulfilled, even anxious, about how you’ve spent your time. And, I’m willing to bet, you haven’t taken time to create.
Ephem·era noun \i-ˈfe-mər-ə, -ˈfem-rə\ Items of collectible memorabilia that were meant to have only short-term usefulness such as tickets, bookmarks, greeting cards, letters, pamphlets, postcards, or posters.
Ephemera in its physical form is often useful to artists for their creative endeavors. However “mental ephemera” can be extremely distracting. But de-clutter your mind, your personal space and give yourself systems, structure + personal rituals and you’ll tame the mental ephemera and you miraculously begin to “find the time” to make your dreams a reality. Really!
Now that’s freedom!
You’d hire a personal trainer to help you change your body,
make the same investment in your life.
Does this sounds like you?
You work for yourself, have free time, but still don’t find the time to pursue your passion.
You used to love music. Now, you forget to turn it on.
You have too many should-dos and not enough get-to-dos.
You feel anxious when you think of all your little responsibilities, your “mental ephemera.”
You don’t write in your journal anymore or when you do, it’s full of angst and negativity.
You no longer feel the joy of creating.
You look in the mirror and don’t recognize yourself.
