Those of you that know me, know that I paint A LOT. I have set myself a challenge to create one mixed media piece a day for 100 days. I will share my progress pictures on my Facebook business page. Which you can find here, if you’re interested.
I’ve completed day one and two already.
I might periodically update here with a photo of all the ones I’ve done so far.
The reasoning behind setting myself a goal like this is to give me a focus, to keep me occupied everyday. To give me a goal to work toward and it will allow me to develop and practice in my skills. I believe it’s important to give yourself short term achievable goals for the benefit of your mental health and your mind. Things often become mundane, the routines get boring and then all of a sudden we’ve switched on autopilot for the every day. We lose ourselves and we aren’t even present in our own lives. This is something for me, that I can share with others too. It’s a double whammy.
Try setting yourself small milestone goals. It doesn’t have to be a big thing. Something as simple as cooking a fresh meal EVERY day without taking something from the freezer, or trying a different hairstyle every day for a week. See how you go, reward yourself at the end. Document your progress and record how you feel, what you gain and what you would do differently if you were to do another similar thing.
