Shaking up my day this morning getting out of my little studio to meet up with a friend. It was perfect weather to be out and about today. I headed to a local cafe for a good cup of cafe mocha and to enjoy some engaging conversation. Afterwards I was inspired to create this little doodle.
Wonderful opportunities happen when you least expect it. I was invited to open up shop for two days at Bernard Katz Glass Studio. I will take the opportunity to showcase my art pendants, whimsical mixed media paintings and art card stationary. Plenty of affordable unique gifts. Prices ranging from $15. to $55.
If you are in the Philadelphia area stop by and say hello. Light refreshments will be offered.
The alarm clock sounded, to my dread, it was Monday. My morning began the same way, it was familiar. The day felt like it was scripted from the movie Groundhog Day with Bill Murray. I questioned my routine. Just before I bolted out the door to work, I received a text message from a good friend, it was a link to an article titled, 5 Ways to have a Ridiculously Amazing Life. The article was exactly what I needed to read, and confirmed what I was feeling.
Though my day didn’t change much from any other work day, I came to the conclusion that I have been treading too lightly through my days. Should shake up old routines, stomp through obstacles and squash complacency. I came out of hibernation today not to predict the weather (although I sense an early spring) but to predict an amazing life daily!
** If you feel stuck, or complacent in your days, the above mentioned article might be a good place to start.
Yes I feel like holding on to the day a bit longer. Sunday always felt like a day to take time for myself, to recharge the senses, relax, create or do the things that make me feel whole again. Always a little sadness for me when wrapping up the day knowing Monday starts all over again. So for now I will enjoy the day.
