my palette with a yellow/orange wipe
things are taking shape a little differently here... yellow is starting to creep into my artwork. thats a good thing as I've never really been too fond of yellow.bright yellow. but it feels like its here for me to try. to see how it fits into my palette of blues, greens + pinks. to embrace my yellowness....
I'm seeing how other things are fitting in too. new things that i have never done before.or even tried to do. like drawing up a schedule. omgosh...I used to cringe at that word. my resistance was always huge! and my resentment for having to stick to my own time was off the Richter scale.even without a schedule. so I get that this is a monumental shift for me. to even contemplate it. I am being kind to myself, putting in a sprinkling of self rewards and a splash of color....I've just started my second week and found google calendar quite friendly (thanks Amy for the suggestion). scheduling was something that was suggested in Kelly Rae's Flying Lessons. my suggestion is do it when you feel ready and open to giving it a good chance, or else it shall well and truly be flicked to the wall.
My other newness is happily waking at 5am and spending an hour with myself. for myself. on myself. by myself. reading, exercising, taking care of myself....and its awesome. has taken quite a bit of self discipline to get there though, but I know I am worth it.
my other omgosh is that I'm creating a biz plan. yep its true. I'm working my way through The Creative Entrepreneur. again taking quite a bit of self discipline but I'm getting there.
and helping me along the way are these books. this one in the morning. and this one in any spare minute I have.
that phrase keeps popping into my head..
if you always do what you've always done then you'll always get what you always got.
not me. I'm singing up for the New + the Untried!
