As in flecks of reflection from the week: what I'm learning and celebrating.
Things I learned this week:
- Technology fails and so do the humans behind it. Be sure that what you think you set up to happen is actually happening. It never hurts to check in.
- How to make sausage soup a la Chuck Wendig. That's right. The writer guy. And it was delicious. Chuck knows his soups.
Things I'm celebrating this week:
- I survived the mud run! (That's me up there crawling to the finish line.) Non-runner/non-adventure-seeker me attempted every single obstacle (all 25 plus) throughout the 3-mile course and I succeeded on nearly all of them. Maybe not so gracefully, but I did it. Am I proud of myself? Heck yeah! Do I need to do that ever again? Not so much.
- Progress. I'm still working behind the scenes here on stepping into my life work. Hooray for small steps forward.
Things that are resonating with me this week:
Painting the Feminine: Protected by Connie Hozvicka of Dirty Footprints Studio. She is painting one piece per day for the month of November, all with the theme of "painting the feminine." I am loving this series and so far "Protected" is my favorite.
How to Feel Miserable as an Artist by Keri Smith as shared on Gwarlingo. All sorts of perfect how-not-to advice here.
The Awareness Link: 7 Focus Areas that Create Success by Christine Kane. Some obvious and some less so. All important.
