Much like many days of mine- the day I decided to paint for some reason, I decided while I had the paint out I'd take care of some other projects- Didn't work. I didn't complete none of them. What I did succeed in that day was overwhelmingness that I put on my own platter. Yes, I upgraded to a platter that day. My plate was to small.
Lesson well learned. Do a few things right, well and enjoyable or do so many things you can't focus an any one of them and it turns out awful!
I was in the taping segment of this movie as I was getting ready to wet the paint brush I realized I had taped the dadgum wrong side. Well, that would've looked just plain stupid and I would have never heard the end of that painting story. The fact is, as I was taping I never thought about taping at all! It was totally not my focus! I was thinking how I needed to get Cole in the bath, fix his milk, what color would look good in the bathroom, making my list of groceries and school supplies in my head.
Once I gave Cole a bath, spent time with him, gave him his milk, tucked him in, quit planning for tomorrow and focused on my job at hand, it was much more enjoyable!
Yes I enjoyed painting at 2am. It was quit. It was amazing!
I realized, I have a bad mind set of- hurrying up to finish what I'm doing so I can hurry up and finish the next thing- I never enjoy much of what I’m actually doing because my focus is what’s next.
Despite the few spills and yells of, “hurry up and bring me a rag”, it went well.
Once I got my priority straight!
I’m not a professional but the room is to my liking-
This made me be more aware of my devotion time. You do it because it's habit but are we really listening?
- think about that for awhile-
