The #YourTurnChallenge week includes topics for each days' blog posting. (#YourTurnChallenge is a Seth Godin inspired weeklong blog commitment - learn more here).
Today's is something to the effect about teaching what I do well. And while that might seem obvious to those of you who follow along because of my art, it's actually a little more complicated. While the obvious answer about what I do well may be to talk about my painting process, I think I actually excel at something completely different.
Pretending that all is well.
Yeah, clearly, the end of last year sent me reeling, but honestly, who wouldn't have crumpled after saying goodbye to 8 dear people during the course of the year?
But pretending I'm ok is something I am really really good at - seeing the positive in every situation. I have been accused of pooping glitter and rainbows. Honest. But pooping glitter and rainbows means I can stand at my easel every day and paint a pretty picture.
So this, seeing the positive in every situation, it is a blessing. While others may gripe, I wrap my arms around some detail or other and find at least a moment's joy to lose myself in.
Yes, it can make other things difficult occasionally, but in my opinion, a dose of reality is so blase. Life is far more exciting when you run with the unicorns. Plus, if, someone messes with you, with the flick of your wrist, they are impaled by one of your running buddies.
Imagination can be a powerful thing, my friends. Embrace it!
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork!
