Your creative outlet, whatever it might be, is supposed to literally be a manifestation of how you feel. If you're stuck doing something with your creative gift that you couldn't care otherwise about then something just doesn't feel right. Especially if you want to make a career out of your creative expression, you will know there are some things you're going to have to do that you simply might not like.

The main thing I've learned from my experiences with my own creative art forms is that you should try to learn how to balance everything. This list might make being a creative person seem like a tiresome, frustrating lifestyle that would make you question why we even value creativity. But, I can assure you, in the grand scheme of things, it's not. Nothing is more satisfying than seeing or experiencing and enjoying the product you created for the very first time. That's why, in my opinion, being a creative individual is one of the greatest things in the world.
