I am thankful for new obsessions, and for allowing myself to indulge. I let myself pour my ‘freakout’ session into my new little side project for 5 hours solid, and when I awoke, my mind was ready to pour some of that obsession into my actual task. I woke up late, spilled some ideas into my morning pages, and then ran full steam for about 7 hours. Yay.
I appreciate hair-saving apps and software. Sure, I could cajole myself all day about the merits of doing the grunt work, and berate myself for always looking for an easier route…. Or, I could spend 7 hours actually doing my work because I remembered the pointlessness of reinventing the wheel and chose to have compassionate patience with my weaknesses. This tool I am using is actually training me, strengthening my skills, which is a pretty notable step up from simply cowering in the corner for 5+ years because ‘wah I dont know how to do it myself’. This project is finally starting to come together and my excitement is STARTING to outgrow my fear.
I am thankful for the creativity of others and for my willingness to indulge my childlike interests. Cause, lets be real, I am still analyzing the amazingness of Moana. There is something so strong there, Disney corporation aside, in the message of the importance of IDENTITY. I’m sure that I will be mulling over it for days to come. …and also singing Shiny to under my breath as I putter around.
I am grateful for Trello for sharing their rad software. It’s nice to be able to click back to a solid idea I had 3 years ago that is finally ready to be toyed with.
I appreciate my supermegaawesome roommate for just being supermegaawesome. And for bringing me food while I was in the zone. And for not throwing me off the balcony for singing the same songs over n over again or making super weird, loud noises when I stretch. Thanks buddy.
K… back to my evening obsession 😁
