I look at the last month and I feel myself cringe just a little. It’s finally September. We reach the cooling down portion of the year, in more ways than one. We got back from Vancouver yesterday, and I am now a light yellow belt in capoeira. I was able to play a game that lasted roughly fifteen seconds before they stopped me to receive it. I still have pain when walking but I want to get back to working out this month at the very least. Next month I have the goal of being able to go back to capoeira and work back up to three times a week.
We drove in last night and I went to bed with my mind whirling on things to accomplish and goals to aim for for the month. And I need to stop! Or at least slow down. I’ve made progress with my paintings, I don’t doubt that. But I fly through everything, and it’s becoming exhausting. I’m trying to embrace the concept of slowing down and taking life a little slower. I’m not going to enjoy the little things if I’m in such a hurry to finish them. I was agonizing over what to get done tonight and almost forgot to remind myself that the evening is mine- I can take it as fast or as slow as I want. I need to just enjoy it!
This picture is of everything I painted in August. I have a goal to do more than this in September…and I haven’t even gotten started yet.
