Here are directions I made for a painting you can complete on your lunchtime break.
mean to you? We won’t be doing any frog eating on this blog, so think of some other possible meanings for this saying.
I heard someone say when you have something you need to do and you find yourself procrastinating, you should eat the frog first. Hmmmmm, I wonder what that means?
This weekend I tried a new technique to get myself to my desk to watercolor. You may have used this technique before with a friend or family member. Maybe you’ve said to them “You can do it! You’re smart, you have a good head on your shoulders, just try,”
Pep talks are not to be cnfused with affirmations. I think an affirmation is something you repeat to yourself that you want to be or happen. You could say, “I am a successful painter, I am creating all the time, even if these things aren’t true I think the theory is that if you repeat them often enough you will believe them. Affirmations don’t work for me. I tried saying to myself, “I am 20 lbs thinner,” then I reached for a cookie.
Today I said to myself something I had been mulling over for a while. “Barbara, you need to practice the painting concepts you have been studying, you don’t need to create a perfect painting.” I also threw in, when you finish you can have a cookie, ooops I said carrot”.
