This is probably gonna sound real weird, like real real weird, but I can feel myself growing. Literally. I don't mean a physical growth; Your girl is way passed the growth spurt adolescent age. This growth is internal. And lemme just say - I am HERE. FOR. IT. It's a real financial struggle being an Indie Artist. Finding and FUNDING resources has been quite the task and can take a toll on one's pockets and pocketbooks. And my pocketbook was on the verge of depletion.
Being quarantined gave me 2 options. 1. Stop the creativity, for more reasons than I care to name. Orrrr 2. Keep Going while Learning and rediscovering how to do it by myself. I chose the latter. And lemme tell you, it's so liberating. I feel so accomplished and most importantly, UNSTOPPABLE. I feel like, yes it's great to have those resources and to have people that I can pay to do a service for me. But there's nothing more freeing than knowing that should something happen, I can still do my thing! I can still create, and I'm not stunted in my art. Don't get me wrong, when Ms. Rona is gone, and life settles in whatever "normal" will look like at that point, I will run towards my team/friends/resources, but it feels so good to know that I can do it myself as well.
Henry David Thoreau once said "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined."
Doing. THAT! - and without excuses or explanation to anyone!
