Creative Block → 025
This was a great read, Temi. as someone who captures moments on a very regular basis, i’ve caught myself in a space of being more mindful of my why. But as someone who is a digital creator (and even a tech gowrl as a whole) i genuinely find joy in not only creating small montages of these memories but also looking back and watching them. Now when it comes to concerts, i’ve learned that being in the moment > recording. Overall I think this is a valuable topic for everyone to consider as it relates to our individual relationships with our phones and social media. Everyone’s answer is going to be different, but as long as we’re welcoming present moment awareness into our doings then all is well 🏿
This post is so fitting as I’m currently taking a social media break and desperately trying to get my screen time down. I’ve become obsessed with my phone this year, really struggling to stay present, so thank you for the reminder!
Thank you so much for the kind words too
Aw man Temi! This was an amazing read. I always enjoy reading your email newsletters, and I happened to come across this one as I am on the road headed to Memphis for the Thanksgiving holiday. Long story short, the message really touched my heart. I have been experiencing a "creative block" if you will for a couple of months now, and I just broke myself out of it yesterday. Then, to read your newsletter this morning and also see the feature has truly inspired me to keep going and keep showing up. Thank you so much for thinking of me, for your kind words, and for inspiring artists like me to keep going. Prayers up also for you, Miss Afritina, and the fam! 🙏🏼✨
Nice one really enlightening.🎁
The sad irony is that we will film a whole concert and never watch it again. Memories are born out of an experience; what kind of memory is it when the experience was holding up a phone and watching it on a small screen?
