We all have our days when things just don’t fall into place. On those days, it can be particularly hard to motivate ourselves to get things going the way we want them to. However, there are always things we can do to get the creativity flowing even if we are having a bad day. It all depends on what we feel is inspiring enough to get our engine running. But if you thought that you were the only one with these dips and congestions in your every day life, I will make you feel a little bit less alone. It so happens that not only are there other people who feel the same way, but this phenomenon is present even in the average game character hero’s life.
We can’t all be heroes all the time. We go through life in different grades of our chosen colors, and we try to do our best to live up to our own goals. But every so often we fall short of the finish line, and even though we get up and finish, we feel bad about not being able to deliver it all in one go. Just have a look at these game characters in a series which is called “I Know That Feel, Bro” who also have a day short of the spotlight. They are illustrations done by the heavily talented illustrator Chris Gerringer aka Paperbeatsscissors.
Even though my short pep talk might not do you any good, at least look at these and have a smile. If you think about it, every good day starts with a smile, right? So next time you feel down, just remember to smile, for whatever reason, it doesn’t really matter, and you will find that living up to all the expectations that you and other people have is not such an important factor in the whole scheme of things. Then, when you feel a little better, brush that dirt off your shoulders and keep on marching. We are all fallen heroes. We’re just not superheroes.
