I cannot believe this Thursday will be Thanksgiving already. It is absurd how fast a year goes by and knowing in a few short months I will be turning 30 is kind of scaring the hell out of me. Either way, I am told I need to focus on the present and get through each day as it comes. So, in attempt to assist my road back to mental stability I am actively painting each day for a minimum of 20 minutes. Admittedly, I am only 4 days in, but I can feel the positive changes coming slowly. I am hopeful this self-prescribed activity will help me get out of the art funk I have been in, help my mentality, and eventually get me back to where I was able to create multiple pieces at a time instead of one every year as it stands. It's weird, I work making art for other people, but I have not been able to actively work on art for myself at all until recently. I have a feeling its due to art for others feeds me and does not require I put my own emotional turmoil to the canvas. Oh well, it may not solve all my woes but I do know even 20 minutes a day is better than no art at all so something will come out of this regardless. Other than my art/mental/emotional bs my life is going well and I am happy with where I am at. This may change next week when my husband goes out of town for work leaving me with our crazy ass dogs so I will keep you all posted... lol. Anyways, I hope all is well and if I do not post before/on Thanksgiving... I hope you all enjoy this Thursday with good food and family.
