All righty, then! Finally! I can say “done” on the very first thing here on keyoflife.se! Yeah, I do feel great about that, because let me tell you; nothing’s been easy with this. There’s the whole issue of language, since I am a swedish native, but speak english as well. That issue in itself took forever to decide on. And then it’s been the rest.
Now, nothing stands in the way between me and my creativity. Well, there’s that thing with finances, of course – some of the things I want to do need money. That’s when, where and why I hope that you’ll buy some of my stuff, and perhaps even support me without anything in return (yet!).
I think that the first thing(s) I’m going to do, is to add into the e-book section. I have quite a few e-books that wants to be written, or perhaps changed (the ones that are already written), and there’s a course in photography (seeing and creating before even clicking to expose) I’ve wanted to write in bookform for a very long time.
Aside from geekiness about photography, I intend to get some photography done. The project “Crippled love” needs attending, and I’ll be seeing one model early this summer for a photo shoot. This project needs to expand, however, so I will start looking for various models at some point.
Since I’m doing this as a hobby rather than a business, it remains to be seen just how quickly I get things done. I refuse to live with stress, so nothing will be done under such. This will be a peaceful, stressfree outlet for my creativity. I hope you’ll enjoy it as I do. 🙂
I absolutely love building stuff. And by stuff, I don’t mean stuff that needs building, like a chair or a table or so. No, I love building websites. This is no exception.
And just for once, I am taking my time. It doesn’t have to be done yesterday. It’s enough if it gets done when I’m done – even if it’d take a month.
Because you know what?
I’ve learned that it’s the small shifts in direction that brings the change. And consistent change is what I’m looking for. Not only me being creative, even if that is what I intend to get me where I want to be.
So, I’m allowing myself the time to get it right. To be pleased. To have fun while doing it. To create a platform on which I’ll put all my creativity to test.
It is going to work the way I want it to?
I haven’t the foggiest – yet. But I’ll find out sooner or later.
What I like, so far, aside the way this site looks (because I am very pleased with that) is that I’ve managed to make some decisions. Like; should I do this in swedish or english, or perhaps both? I tried a few options, and landed in what it is now. Most is in english, to let as many people as possible understand. Some information (lectures) is in swedish, because that’s where I live, and that’s where I’ll be doing my talks – which, by the way, are very important.
I haven’t managed to gather myself to this level for many, many years. I can’t tell you how happy I am to see that am whole and stable enough to do that. Bipolar disorder has a tendency of getting in the way of focus and ambition sometimes.
Now, I just want to be done with the site itself, so I can get started on the actual creative stuff I got planned. There are so many things I am going to do. E-books. Photography stuff. Projects involving dogs. And more!
Please, help me along – buy me a cup of tea! 🙂
Key of Life
staying true to oneself
So. I’m back. I’ve been away from creating stuff on a regular basis for a very, very long time. But years of dealing with my bipolar disorder have made me bored and restless, so it’s time I do what I’m best at.
I’ll do it differently this time, though. Last time, I tried to do what other people wanted, and that doesn’t work for me at all.
I’m at my very best when I create things that for one reason or the other is important to me. That’s what I intend to do here, and I hope you’ll like it.
Since I am retired from work due to my bipolar disorder, I have very limited resources to actually do everything I want to do. Please consider supporting me once in a while, or perhaps on a regular basis, so I can keep doing all the stuff I love doing.
As for staying true to oneself; that is a quiet reminder to myself that I can’t be anyone else but me. I tried for so many years to be someone else, but I can’t. I am who I am, and I am not appologizing for it. Not anymore.
Key of Life is just getting started, so changes will happen, material and content will be added and removed. Fear not; this will be awesome in the end. ♥
