A relief from our frozen moments we have a high of 47 today. This girl hung out in her backyard with just a sweatshirt!
I thought it was a great opportunity to get to the beach and breathe in some ocean air.
I don’t know what has been in my isolated air lately but I have been so stuck in my thoughts. Don’t get me wrong, working through our thoughts are a good thing. It’s important to ask ourselves the why we do things and the why behind what we want. Getting behind the why helps us create the drive to accomplish things.
I have been hyper focused on my thoughts to help guide me with my future. My current work situation is in a huge change and unknown future, which is creating me to rethink or develop my direction. Been loving all the mental work I have been doing and working to get more art infused into my days. But all this work has definitely put my brain into a funk.
But what’s a great way to get out of a funk? Get outside!
I forced myself to bring my sketchbook and not land on the good old excuse “it will be too cold” that I find in my vocabulary during these winter months.
I was so glad I pulled it out and captured the quick sketch on the wind blown shoreline. Got some walking in to warm myself up and get my dog happy. Not a sketch to write home about, but it’s amazing what the mind captures when you are working to mimic the world around you. It’s like a meditation with pen in hand. Hyper focused only on the moment and sensing every detail around you.
