Today in my poetry creative writing class my professor said something along the lines of ‘anything that interests you is worthy of your attention’. This statement was really powerful to me. He was talking specifically about writing poetry about anything that interests you without it needing to be extremely deep, but I also think the statement applies to other areas. For instance, I used to feel bad about picking some books to read because they were just fluffy books, but really if they interest me they are worth my time. It isn’t a waste to do something that makes you happy.
