Quote of the Episode:
“I want to make sure I am filling my day with things that I enjoy doing. When I get off of work and come home, I want to write a song, write a poem or draw or doodle, those are things I look forward to. I want to wake up and do those things.” Damian White on creating a routine of your creativity.
