Gentlemen, let me begin by thanking all of you again for your support and contribution to this blog. It is greatly appreciated. I hope we continue to be good friends for a long time to come.
I know that a few of you guys are music producers/artists/or just enjoy enriching culture. Whether you do this professional or not, it is certainly true in most cases that this is a creative outlet. Regardless of whether you're a maths teacher (Although, I find maths to have an extremely artistic and creative side.), nearly every human being has/needs an outlet into which he can pour his ideas and creativity into. This may be a series of projects or a life-long passion, it's obviously unique to the individual.
A creative outlet is not something that should be viewed as "against the stream" or strictly for those not adhering to conservative lifestyle. This should be something that everyone can enjoy, whether you find yourself sketching in between work shifts or playing around with theoretical money, there is not set standard, nor a limit, as to what you can and cannot do.
The benefits? Having a private, enjoyable hobby will not only create that 'me-time' everyone needs, but helps to develop mini-goals and a sense of purpose and achievement. For me, I have my beloved blog, my psych studies, and a recently purchased guitar. Needless to say I'm not Jeff Beck. But I'm getting there.
I have previously mentioned the urge to create. This ties into this post, as it is important to understand that everyone does have an urge to build, whether it is literally or metaphorically speaking.
I hope you enjoy your outlet and make the most of your potential. That's it for tonight, take care of yourselves.
