Yesterday, that old lizard brain got hold of me, but I faced it and went on with my daily draw. It’s becoming a habit — acknowledging the negative, frightened, reptile voice and drawing a map away from it. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to silence it, but I’m gaining confidence in my ability to manage it. And who knows, maybe we’ll become friends. A critical mind can be good at editing and discernment. It could, I think, help me with my boundaries. The important thing is to learn to channel it in positive directions.
So today, I did my 50th daily draw. The sun is shining. It’s going to be a good day.
I’m drawing daily to help manage depression, long-term disability, and life in general. If you’d like to see the beginning of this project, you can see it here. You can also follow me through WordPress or on Facebook.
Your thoughts and shares are appreciated.
I’m linking this to Paint Party Friday, a group I haven’t been active in for awhile, but would like to check in again today.
