The limits on your enlightenment come not from the age you stopped going to school but from the age you stopped being curious

A few people have asked me "How's your project going?" The honest answer is that it's life altering. It consumes my time and my thoughts. I fill pages of lists, notes, and sketches every single day. I research artists. I go to the library. I draw. I write. I work in photoshop. I read books. I connect with others on a similar path. I buy supplies. I make stuff. I break stuff.
Yeah I do other stuff too. I homeschool my kids. I do the laundry. I do client work. I do household chores and errands. I try to exercise. I cook and I garden. I hike. I try to relax too.
But this project is always on my mind. What will I make next? How can I get better? What am I going to write about? Why isn't this working? Always thinking, always questioning.
While I understand that not everyone is interested in a creative habits project, I think everyone should have a project of some kind. Something that you care about and can work on it. I'm not talking about your 'passion.' Geez that's way too much pressure. Just an interest is enough to start a project. Most likely it will lead you to another interest and then another. You don't have to stick with just one thing. But do something. Learn something. Stay curious.
