I did 32 days of Morning Pages in 33 days, broke a chainsaw with my mind, and ate vegan pizza in bed. In other words: I finished week 5 of The Artist’s Way.
I’m still struggling to plan proper Artist Dates on a weekly basis. This week, I had a panic attack and ended up eating vegan pizza in bed, watching one of my comfort shows on my phone. That counts, right?
I also realized Netflix is my current favourite vice. I’m eating quite healthy, I don’t drink (alcohol, coffee, or soda – you can tell I’m really fun!), I don’t smoke, I try to move my body every day. I just really like my comfort shows. I re-watch stuff I’ve seen before when I’m anxious or out of sorts, and it really does make me feel better. I’ll let myself keep that one, for now.
Fun fact: I was doing a rapid-fire Wish List (answering “I wish…” 20 times as quickly as possible) while we had some workmen in the house. I wrote “I wish… the workmen would leave already.” (I’m an introvert, I don’t like having strangers in my space.) A few minutes later, they walked in to tell us their saw didn’t work and they had to leave to pick up another one.
I jokingly told my partner who answered with “Honey, you need to be more specific. We talked about this!” Good times! Anyway, my advice to you: be specific in your wish list. I wish… the workmen would hurry up and leave AFTER FINISHING THE WORK. (They were actually really nice and it all turned out okay.)
I also had some nice moments of synchronicity this week, but they’re all work-related, so I’ll leave it at that. (Privacy is a great thing, people!)
I hope you’re having a lovely week and I’d love to hear what you think!
