I think the opposite of consuming is creating

I realised that during this lockdown, I have been REALLY into putting things into my shopping cart(s) online. Luckily the cart to purchase ratio is much smaller (but lets be real, probably larger then I would like it to be).

I guess during lockdown, Netflix can only take you so far. Then you start to want to do other things. Like online shopping I guess. I’m also decently preggers so exercising or other types of physical activity isn’t really an option (ok, it probably is, but I’m also lazy so sue me).

But that’s when I realised that we need some sort of creative outlet to do something. Otherwise people like me will just will go crazy with all the online purchases. Because when you’re creating you’re doing something with your entire being. And that puts you in a different state and gets you out of your mind. And I think that’s what we are trying to do really. Get out of our minds and just be somewhere else.

So I’m going to try and do that. Create. What am I going to create? I have no idea. But maybe that’s what I’m going to figure out today.

(And, well, I have already maxed out all my online shopping budget in the first 10 days of the month…so there’s that)

Good motivation.
