Saw this moments ago in the FB. I'm curious about you - You have so much stuff going on - it's seems that you have like 27 hours in a day or maybe you don't sleep at all wink.gif

Haha.. well it's amazing to see what it must look like from your perspective. In my personal experience I feel like I have certain periods of lots of inspiration and activity followed by quieter periods where not much happens smile.gif

One thing that I changed in my behaviour a long time ago was to stop watching/listening to the news and allowing myself to be bombarded with negative stuff, especially early in the morning when we're more susceptible.

I make more of a conscious effort to surround myself with inspiration. Music I enjoy, reading things that are inspirational.. I do whatever I can to remain in a good place so I'm free in my mind enough to get ideas. smile.gif

Oh JfC !! You have very words of wisdom there ! I think that nowdays people (me) just play too much on their iPhones/Samsungs etc. Like on every spare time...that really kills the creativity. Too much media bursting at you.
