I painted this week.
This is a really big deal for me because I have not painted since January when I first got sick with strep. I was sick for all of February and March. (Since then I have been dealing with a knee injury, but that is another story.) I was so tired that I went to bed early and took naps whenever I could. I just didn’t have the energy for anything extra, not to mention that I couldn’t take the fumes of the acrylic paint when I was already having difficulty breathing.
Okay, enough of the explaining and complaining. I painted! I had fun. It was really hard to pick up a painting that I started three months ago and jump right in. These paintings are abstract and it sometimes hard to tell where my brain was going when I started it.
I don’t have a finished picture to show you yet, because I have several paintings in various stages of completion. I am working on two different sets of paintings for our bedroom wall. Whichever set I like best gets to stay. This is going to be a long project since they take many each to complete and my time is very limited.
It is important for me to make time for the things that are important to me. Pursuing things that I am passionate about. Sometimes in the everydayness of life we forget what it is like to have passion for something. I know this happens to me. There are so many things competing for our time and energy it is very important that we choose the things we do carefully and use our time wisely. I need to remind myself of this often.
What are you passionate about?
