It’s going to be a great day, what will you create today, I ask myself as the alarm coaxes me awake.
My sleepy eyes open, and the first streams of soft sunrise trickle into the room. I fight the urge to hate it and remember that the sun has not risen this morning just to choose violence against me, personally.
It’s going to be a great day, I say again, with more conviction this time. What will you create today, Lindsay?
And the first thing I create is a feeling.
I grab my headphones, and I start right in on my mind, which, unlike the sun, sometimes does rise just to choose violence against me, personally.
What is it that I need in this moment?
Ecstasy (now I’ve got your attention)
I don’t get up until my creation is complete, and I’ve presented myself with the feeling I need and sometimes look for outside of me.
My feet hit the floor, and I resist the urge to think about anything that comes after that very next step.
And the question returns, What will you create next, Lindsay?
And so the day goes.
I have the power to create any kind of day I want.
“Regardless of whether or not we’re formally making art, we’re all living artists. We perceive, filter, and collect data, then curate and experience for ourselves and others based on this information set. Whether we do this consciously or unconsciously, by the mere fact of being alive, we are active participants in the ongoing process of creation.” -Rick Rubin
