Love The Life You Live

Before I set out to write my blog posts, I think all week prior about what I want to write.

Notice how it's been a couple of weeks since I posted?  I couldn't think of anything good to write.

I realized I just had to say "no".

When you are an artist and your time is your own, it's hard to rationalize "taking off".  Off from what?  Isn't every day, every week a week when you do whatever you want?

Not when you are trying to brand yourself and start a business.

But I decided that last week was the week I was going to just throw everything up in the air and change my routine.  Monday was the 4th of July and every year we have a huge BBQ.  The fun-ness for me varies from year to year, but I bring that on myself.  For the balance of the week I had planned to recharge my creative juices and every morning I was going to visit a different spot I enjoy taking pictures and spend every afternoon regrouping, recharging and unplug while lounging by the pool.

Tuesday it rained.

Thursday afternoon I had to drive my mother-in-law to the airport.

Friday I had to attend a funeral.

So much for regrouping, recharging and unplugging.

Maybe round two?
