“Today I will do it.”
“Okay, today I will do it.”
“Fine, before I do anything else…”
“That’s it! I’m posting on that blog before forget, darn it!”
…..so yeah. This has been me for the past several weeks (or months – it’s been forever!). I’ve struggled to remember that I have a blog that exists somewhere on the internet. I seriously haven’t committed 100% to writing on my blog at least once a week. Which, to me, is bad. It’s not that I hate writing or anything. I LOVE TO WRITE! I’ve kept a diary/journal for the past 12-13 years or so. I have a habit of writing and just feel this need to write…. It’s a need I can’t explain, but there’s just this something inside of me that tells me to write in my journal. I just have to remember that I have a little blog on WordPress. 🙂
Of course, summer has started and I’ve been a little busier than usual. Already, it’s July! I can’t believe half of 2014 is already gone! Time slips away before my very eyes. Literally.
As of late, I’ve been diving into art. Okay let’s get one fact straight: I. Love. Art. I was born with a pencil in my hand. I’ve been drawing ever since I can remember, and was inspired first by my dad. When I was younger, I remember just being infatuated by his incredible drawing skills. I vowed that when I was older, I was going to become just as good as him or better. For the past few months I’d say, I’ve been trying to think of a way to get my artwork out there to others – DUH! The internet, hello!
Of course! The internet! The wonderful internet where anything is possible! (Now, being that the internet influences such a huge part of our lives, why on earth had I not thought of it before????) And so, I’ve started posting my art on Google+ for now, and am so happy to not only get my artwork out there, but also see others’ artwork! Wow! There are so many artists out there! I love communicating with artists like myself and hope to continue to interact with them. It’s so important for us musical and artistic people to receive feedback on our work. In fact, I was feeling pretty down about myself, but realized I wasn’t getting the feedback I needed. I realized, I must become involved with something! Now, I have this new rush of adrenaline to start drawing like crazy! (Haven’t quite gotten into painting, yet. I admit I’m intimidated by the thought of using color!) But I will make myself try it! I must! I love color, but there’s just no way to erase any of it….what if I make a mistake and screw the whole painting up? Ah, but I must get past the fear of failure and try it anyway, right? Of course, right! (Think of Yenta in Fiddler on the Roof)
I must break away for now. I promise to continue to write more often, even if it is of something stupid…
And no, this time I’ve not titled a post because I’ve drawn a blank for coming up with anything, but don’t want that to prevent me from posting anyway.
Til then, I remain,
