Crafts are treasures.
Back in the day, we would always have our parents see what we created in preschool. Do you still remember how it felt like seeing them happy with what you created? They look at it as if it’s treasure. You too, right?
But you weren’t supposed to stop at preschool.
EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN CRAFT
Whatever it is that made us interested and curious as a kid, becomes the thing that we kept on doing till we get older.
It may be a reflection of what our parents do because when we were kids, we were great imitators. As our interests grew, we got hooked with more information and started to look for inspiration and like-minded people.
When we create, produce and work on our craft, it isn’t something we’d ask for money in return. It is purely out of love and it just simply makes you happy doing it.
Everyone has their own craft. People have different likes, skills, and niche. Whatever’s cool for you can be uncool for others. Whatever’s weird for you can be awesome for others.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LOVE YOUR CRAFT?
YOU MAKE TIME FOR IT.
No matter how busy life can get, you still make time for it.
After school, or work, even if the only time you have left once you get home is to change clothes and go straight to bed, you still make time for it.
Allotting an hour or even a few minutes to practice your craft or to create something can work wonders. It’s an achievement. It’s considered a victory for you.
YOU INVEST IN IT.
The older we get, the more we focus on our priorities. If you consider your craft as a priority, then invest in it.
“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always be where you’ve always been.”T.D. Jakes
When you train at any sport, if you keep doing the same routine, will it give you better results? NO. You have to add something in your routine. When you are on a diet, but you kept on giving in to temptations, will it help you lose pounds? NO. You have to have self-discipline to see results.
When it comes to investing in your craft, money ain’t a thing!
YOU SHARE IT.
Show the world what you can do. Let the world see your craft.
It can be hard to put things out there but once you start it, it gets lighter. Maybe some people needed to see it or hear it or know it. You’ll never know what your craft can do to other people’s lives. Just like the famous adage goes: “Sharing is caring.”
“LOVING YOUR CRAFT IS EQUAL TO SELF-LOVE.”
- Choose to make time for yourself.
- Choose to invest in yourself.
- Choose to share what you got.
No other person will value your craft as much as you do. Loving your craft requires you to make time for it, to invest in it, and to be proud of it, so share it.
