I have talked with a few people in person about this over the past few months so I thought I would share it here too. I have noticed that there is this expectation in the creative field that people think in order to be happy you have to be pursuing your craft full time. In my experience it's the exact opposite. I love having a job and being an artist on the side. You don't have to do your passion full time in order to be successful or to be taking it seriously or to lead a happy life. For me, I need a place to go where I can have other responsibilities and interactions with people. Being an artist can be so hard for me because I really have to be alone for 8 hours straight with no distractions to get things done so nothing makes me happier to not do that the next day. #takeyourownpath
