What do you do when real life interrupts your artistic process? 🍚


This post loosely accompanies Gab & Jam, 241. What do you do when real life interrupts your artistic process?

As a D.I.Y. Rock Star, you have to NOT ONLY grow/maintain your artistic exploration, outreach, and dialing in the vision, but also you are living real life in the meantime. This means that you are likely holding down a day job, may have some kids and a spouse, and need to balance it all as best you can. THAT’S where this episode comes in. Lean on these ideas when “real life” strikes and takes you away from your creative life.





This topic piggybacks on episode 235. How NOT to let the news discourage you (for the D.I.Y. Rock Star) (video: https://bit.ly/235healthymindsetvid and podcast: https://bit.ly/235healthymindsetpod ), but this one specifically asks what to do when you cannot just fa la la into your studio whenever you want to create your art? Sure, you’ve blocked your time and made an appointment with yourself and closed the door, but then a child is sick and you have to tend to them? Or a spouse is in a bicycle accident (as was the case in the podcast episode that I was inspired by), then what?
