Sunday morning while on a skype with one of my friends in Australia we were talking about the things we want to do within our lives, this discussion reminded me of my Live Life Now List. This was an idea that I got from a book not to call it a bucket list but a Live Life Now list and I do think that is a better idea. It has a subtitle of “things I want to experience before I die” and I think that is a great way of looking at life. What are the experiences I want to have – so I dug out my list, as it has been a while since I’ve looked at it – and I got the opportunity to mark a few things off! But it has made me think again about things I would like to add to the list.
So why Take 2 in my heading – I’ve written about this list before (22nd November 2014 on “my” other blog if you are interested).
In some ways this does link back to what I wrote about previously – the inspiration and innovation. Rethinking one’s life isn’t the easiest thing to do, but one hint I got from somewhere is that developing habits it is always easier to start with something small, for example making your bed every day. Now it is a small thing but once you realise that you can do a small change it enables a mind-set that it is possible to make these changes. So I’ve started with making the bed every day and over the past month I’ve missed one day – which is really good. Now on to the next thing – whatever that may be.
One thing I have been doing is my art work, but also doing more thinking about it, looking at YouTube videos on techniques and also watching videos, talks etc from artists about how to make money from your art, as ultimately this is what I would like to do. It would be great if eventually I could make a living from my art, but for now, I’m happy to just look at the option of getting a little money from it.
Until next time
