This week has flown by and suddenly it’s Friday and I haven’t accomplished as much artwork as I would have liked to. Oh well, TGIF nevertheless! This brings me to something I’ve been contemplating all this week – learning to just let it go. I’m talking about a real honest evaluation of the projects you are involved with. We all know there are only 24 hours in a day and there will always be something on the list of to do’s. We can’t do it all, but we often attempt to do so anyway.
I say, don’t be afraid or feel bad to simply abandon a project. It’s over…and it’s perfectly okay. Life goes on! I’m no longer going to beat myself up for not finishing a few in progress paintings. I can just paint over them and start fresh.
Maybe a new routine isn’t working out so well for you. I say, be fearless and try something else. I’m no longer doing daily birds, but opened it up to just simple daily sketches.
Maybe you have a super special project and you refuse to let it be finished because of a few details? I say, push your perfectonism aside and call it done! Learn to let go and just relax. Our lives should be fun and happy…so create that environment for yourself. Oh and don’t forget to have a beer. I’ve had my liter already and feeling pretty good…
So what are you going to let go of today?
