Arting for 365 Day 185: Find 10 Minutes and Do What You Love

~6 x 9″ ink on paper

Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

Arting for 365 is really one of the best things I have done for myself. The adventure started out as a broad idea to get myself making art again. But (as cheesy as it sounds) it has become so much more. One of the greatest things I’ve learned is that ANY amount of time you can dedicate to what you love, is still dedication. There are days when I only have 10-20 minutes available to create- but those minutes are valuable. Those minutes make me a better artist.

If there is something you love to do, but you haven’t made time for it, start making time. Give yourself 10 minutes a day. Not sure where to find those 10 minutes? I’ve got some brilliant suggestions:

Forego the shower: As long as you can’t smell you, you don’t stink.

Don’t make dinner: Make your kids do it. Don’t have kids? Make your spouse/neighbor/friend or pet make you dinner. Even better, hire a chef. I hear they are super affordable these days. Better yet, skip dinner: We could all use to shed a few lbs anyway

Literature time: Instead of reading that magazine on the pot, bring in a pen and paper.

Commercial time: Give up the Tivo, it’s pricey anyway. Do a little of what you love during those awful political commercials.

Pet care: I’m not saying DON’T give the dog a walk. I’m just saying buy a treadmill and put the dog on it.

It’s as easy as that.

  1. So as I go to the gym here and a couple of the televisions are set to American stations, here’s what I’ve learned in the past couple weeks about American politicians:

    1. They all want to give tax breaks to millionaires.

    2. No country/state/etc can afford to re-elect whoever is already in a seat under any circumstance ever.

    3. They all vote in ways that apparently mimic movie villains.

    According to these commercials these points apply to everyone ever everywhere.

  2. Ha ha! You nailed it. Whoever wins will apparently destroy America and we will plummet to the depths of hell. -Or so each party wants us to believe of the opposing party.

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to post them here.
