The grind has been so real the past 6 months.
Waking up early, staying out late. Networking all around, shooting a ton, dreaming of whats next always. The grind never ends. I hope the grind never fades.
I do know, down time is grind time as well.
This past week, I found myself watching an inspiring documentary on an icon in the fashion world that lived in the grind as well. As I watched his art come to life in this documentary, I found myself inspired for what is next for me. It was there, sitting on the couch, watching Netflix, that I conjured up what I believe will be the next big step for me in my career. It was an unreal feeling. The feeling when you have to bust out your journal to keep jotting down thoughts that are coming to mind, but your pen can't take to the paper fast enough.
I'm not going to share with you exactly what that idea is right now, but you will know when it comes to life.
Don't lie to yourself and believe that there is no down time in the grind. There can be. Inspiration, dreaming, breathing, visualizing and feeling. All of that is possible in down time. All of that is possible in the grind.
The grind continues. CMT.
