without my art - i would have lost my heart a long time ago she said with a sigh
I’ve decided that on Wednesdays instead of going to gym after work, I will go home and exercise my creative muscles instead. Any excuse not to gym – but seriously creating, making art, having a dedicated time to play with my paints and brushes is vital to my health. I will have to do a few extra minutes on the other days I go to gym – or else I may just feel guilty – no don’t think I will.
If I call myself an artist – it means that I have to create, I need to have art to show. I need to practice my craft, my art, I need to dedicate time to learning, to trying out new things and I need to constantly evolve and challenge myself.
It’s a big responsibility calling myself that title – am I ready for the challenge? It’s great to have a dream, some goal to work towards; the dream is a form of planning, it helps with goal setting, with direction. My dream is to feel comfortable with that title, to be able to say those words with strength and conviction – I’m getting there, just need a bit more time.
