Great parenting advice given to me by my Mom while watching me fight a battle with a 3 year old that was not worth fighting but I had to keep fighting it because I picked it. :) Now I choose my battles carefully.
Rules of a creator's life edition Do more than you're told to do. Try new things. Teach others about what you know. Make work into play. Take breaks. Work when others are resting. Always be creating. Make your own inspiration. Love what you do, or leave.
