It’s so much more fulfilling to be a creator rather than a consumer.
Seriously, I’ve bought tons of crap in my life and very few of those things have had any substantial impact on me. The things I have made, (sadly far fewer in number) have had substantial impact on my life and even other people’s lives. It is one of the higher honors in life to be able to create something that impacts other people’s lives. Get out in the world. Dream. Build. Create.
