I have been away from my paint brush (even though it’s a Wacom pen) for almost 2 weeks. I couldn’t paint anything as works are piling up and I couldn’t concentrate for hours that I required.
This week I told myself to block my schedule accordingly since I have breaks in-between both the morning and evening. I wake up early in the morning and paint for a couple of hours and spend time finish my book in the evening. Finding own time is difficult, but when the other could deal with it and why can’t I. So far I made it, I might not please everyone around me but I’m motivated by my desire.
Finding own time is rather difficult, but when the other could deal with it and questioning myself why I couldn’t. We might not able to please everyone around us but we’re motivated by our desire to achieve, to be happy and to help someone around us.
This week #APaintPortrait would like to dedicate to Sam. He reminds me of what I read from Ayn Rand, “A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.” It’s always interesting to read something from Ayn Rand as she is powerful with her words.
