I keep getting notifications on Facebook about how long it’s been since I’ve updated my page. I update my page whenever I update my blog. After much thought, I was contemplating stopping the blog altogether and posed that question on my page. One individual said I should continue writing. So, I decided to give it a go today and see where this takes me.
As I was setting up my computer to start this, my eight year old son comes up to sing me a song he had just written. It included guitar solos. After his private performance to me, he asked if I could take a video. The song was over eight minutes long. He is now in the process of writing a shorter song for me to video. Earlier today, he was drawing evolutions of his own Pokémon. He has so much creativity and motivation! Of course, in my mind, I compared it to my lack of creativity and motivation.
The end of last week I decided to create a inspiration/vision board. At first, my goal of the board was to promote weight loss/fitness and positivity. As I added things, I realized other aspects of me I wanted to shine again: being excited, being imaginative, remembering to give myself some breaks. I had put it off for some time but had an opportunity to work on it when my husband took my son to the movies. For about an hour and a half, I focused completely on the board (along with the background music of Hank von Hell’s solo album). I was embarrassed to tell my husband what I was making because I knew he would find it silly. I found it kind of silly before I actually created it. The pic is cut-off in parts, but you get the gist: vision board.
I’m off to listen to the new song and enjoy my day with my son.
