Feeling very excited and inspired this week. Recently joined Patreon, not as a creator but to support others. I am currently a patron of Amy Landino, my motivational coach and Fran Meneses, an illustrator. Fran is one of the reasons for my excited. Her art has inspired me to get back in touch with my artistic side. I feel like a child again, seeing the world through the eyes of wonder and curiosity.
However, knowing me I know that my inspiration and motivation can be short lived so I need to create a system to keep me going. Challenging myself to post an illustration weekly or daily, if I can manage that with the other duties in my life, will be a great source of accountability. I will definitely be browsing though Fran’s illustrations for motivation and listening to Amy’s podcast: Detail Therapy in order to go after the life I want.
Other that art, I have been learning Japanese and Spanish on Duolingo daily. Right now it is about 5mins everyday which is not much but it is better than nothing. I am also participating in a meditation challenge for the month of October. This is a challenged started by another podcaster I listen to: Greg Clunis of Tiny Leaps, Big Changes. As you can tell I have been busy this month with more to come. I intend to end the year as pleasantly as possible despite the uncertainty and challenges of 2020.
I am full of ideas and inspiration right now that I am going to explore, but more on that at a later date.
Anyway, I thought this week I will give an update on my life. Hope you like this post. Follow, like and don’t forget to love, inspire and learn.
PS: Challenging myself to read a book a week from next month until the end of the year so be prepared for a lot more book reviews. Can’t wait to share my review of Winning the War on Cancer by Sylvie Beljanski.
Thank you for reading.
