The B&E Podcast #125
“Say Yes to Your Free Time as an Artist”w/ Chelsea Comeau
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
With our lovely and talented guest, Chelsea Comeau, poet and writer, we talk about connecting to our worth and taking the time to do what we need, be happier, and more creating.
POINT #1: “YOU’RE WORTH DOING THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY”
– As our guest points out, getting past a low sense of self-worth can be vital to allowing more of the good things in your life. Often that’s just giving yourself time and taking the pressure off.
POINT #2: “BUSY WORK, HARD WORK”
– Our society glorifies a lot of ideas around hard work or being busy. Let’s change some of that mentality to having passion and giving it your all WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT. Working hard and being “busy” all the time leads to burnout. There’s a time to be patient and there’s a time to act — be ready for both.
POINT #3: “JUDGMENT CASE”
– We’re often very judgmental of ourselves for our actions, inactions, activities, feelings, and desires. We don’t always know what these are for, and sometimes what seems counterproductive is exactly what we need to recharge the well. Maybe that’s taking a walk, maybe that’s a meditation or a coffee break. We need a little combo of “getting on” and “goofing off”.
