I enjoyed this month’s focus. The one technical “fail” (I’ll go into details of that in my Andy Warhol post next week) was still comprised of fun attempts.
Remember birthdays. Check! Again some are sent off late but all are sent off eventually:)
Write in one sentence journal and affirmation book when moved to do so. Was only moved to do so once or twice this month. That’s good enough for me!
Do one creative thing daily. Check! Only missed a couple of days but otherwise had this covered.
Go to bed at a reasonable hour. If I make “reasonable hour” mean 11 for this month, then I was about 50% successful.
Exercise three times per week doing exercises I enjoy. Check!
Research an artist a week. 3/4 Check. I didn’t get to Gustav Klimt. He’s going into next year’s Creative Life Project for sure! It was interesting I didn’t end up collaging as much as I thought I would. I was more moved to draw and then colour and went with it.
This month’s major distraction was our road trip up near Armstrong, BC. It was a visual “fill the well” distraction though and my eyes soaked it all up. Sometimes I wish days were 48 hours long. Then besides adventures with my kids, keeping house, and exercising I would still have a good 12 hours just to paint, 6 to write, and another 12 to sleep. I always think, “If I can accomplish what I do already exhausted, just imagine if I were well rested…”
I’ve heard kids sleep a lot in their teens so I guess I’ll find out then!
