Someone once told me that a good strategy for getting out of a design rut is to draw the most ridiculous thing you can think of as a way to clear your head. Today I tried it and...yikes😬 These two pieces of lapis lazuli and the triangular pyrite cabs have been sitting in a bin together for a while now but nothing I drew was working. So today while sketching the gaudiest thing I could think of, I looked over at my pile of stones and saw that they had somehow arranged themselves into a perfect little stack that answered my question of how to design the perfect pendant with them. Swipe right to see!
I don't remember which of you made that suggestion to me but thank you! I had a really fun morning😊
I can’t believe that next month it’s been a year since I started these programs. -
Even a year later, I still struggle to get out of bed and push play. I still dread changing out of my pjs, and I still have an internal dialogue about how I could skip this workout because of XY and Z. And in fact I still hate about the first 10 minutes of every single workout.... -
But after a year, it’s a habit to workout. I feel more strange NOT working out then I do working out. I can convince myself of just about any workout because I LOVE the feeling of being done, of refreshed focus and accomplishment.... the only difference is I don’t let the negative talk win. I don’t let my excuses take over. I do it anyway. -
It’s been a year of convincing myself every morning that I am worth it. I’m worth the time and the effort because I want to be happy and energized. -
And this morning? When I saw these little shoulder muscles poking through..... that made pushing play worth it too! 😉
Ellie has such an intense imagination 😄 last night she dreamt about a pumpkin on top of the moon, and a superhero who got stuck in a cloud 🙃 part of this week's lesson plans include making goal lists and plans. Gonna start teaching her to make her big dreams a reality 😊✨
