She's scary, isn't she?
She scares me and i'm the one who drew her. :-)
I'm posting her anyway because i believe
flawed art is still better than no art.
This little wavy haired woman was done right after the girl in the water,
and it's a work in progress.
In BIC marker and acrylic paints.
These kinds of doodles are always so meditative for me.
The quote you see on the left is one that i love
by J.R.R. Tolkien...
Not all who wander are lost
I'm reading the FIRE STARTER SESSIONS
and working on some of the worksheets.
I'll tell you a little secret about myself.
i am not a goal oriented person.
So whenever i see someone with calendars
or a strategic 5 year plan on their wall
my heart starts to palpitate.
It just all seems far too mechanical for me.
I'm just saying.
It's just not who i am.
For those of you who can fly with 5 year plans on their walls,
more power to you!
I've never been good at setting goals for myself
i've accomplished most of what i set out to do,
Oh, and love is important too.
If you don't love what you're doing
chances are good you may meet the deadline
but you'll still feel empty inside
and almost always drained at the end of the day.
I know. I've been there. It's not a good feeling.
Danielle Laporte gently asks this question in her book:
how do you want to feel?
An important question, wouldn't you say?
Once i thought about this for a while,
i realized that one of the most important values for me
Maybe i really am a hippie at heart. :-)
I want to feel free more than anything,
which probably explains why i've always struggled
with the 9 to 5 job.
I've done it, for years, but i never strived there.
I was trading my freedom for financial reward,
and that just wasn't cutting it for me.
There had to be another way.
There was another way.
i just had to claim it as my own.
When i walked on the beach last weekend,
in this one spot on the sand,
there had been a bonfire there the night before.
Out of the ashes, i saw this one piece of paper...
and these 2 words made me smile.
Wishing you all a happy Wednesday.
