I shy away from fad-steeped jargon that has been over-marketed to death. Words like mindfulness. intention. branding.
Yet, here I am. I am rebuilding my online space, carving out a creative patch, and attempting to define what it is I actually do, creatively speaking. I just started an online mixed-media course that recommended journaling my intentions for the course, and as a teacher I know that is best practice. It’s a solid way to know if I’m meeting the self-designed goals I set, especially toward the middle murky bit when my perfectionism starts to take hold and I feel discouraged.
