Tango Golf India Foxtrot!Â TGIF!Â Thank Goodness It’s Friday!Â Some weeks just seem to drag on.Â Others just fly by.Â This one did both.Â I suppose that I am still learning how to balance my priorities.Â My work seemed to get away from me and now I am playing catch up.Â I didn’t do ANY of the challenges I set for myself artistically except for the EDM.Â That, at least, I have managed to be consistant with. Last night’s challenge, draw your artspace, got away from me.Â I tried to eliminate the clutter as I was drawing.Â Should have just drawn the piles of paper, books, and various other flotsam and jetsam.Â Always learning and moving forward I guess.
I have always told the kids that sometimes you can’t do the things you want to do because you are busy doing the things you have to do. That is not always the case, though.Â Sometimes, you don’t get the things you have to do done because you were messing around with the things you want to do.Â Ah, sweet procrastination.Â One of my recent finds is The Fluent Self by Havi Brooks.Â My first take on her was that she was a sweet, well meaning, hippie flake.Â I still think that, but I also think she makes a lot of sense.Â As I read through her posts I found myself readily identifying with much of what she has to say.Â Wander over there and give her a looksy.Â Â She posted a few must see websites last night and I was up way too late checking them out.Â One of my new favorites is Mindful Time Management.Â There, Janet Bailey reflects on the sources of procrastination (self doubt…), recognizing it for what it is (negativity), and ways to deal with it (positivity).Â Check her out as well.
Positivity is a word I like.Â ;)
