Sometimes as an artist and free spirit, I am prone to flights of fancy which are granted 110% of my enthusiasm and energy today and then tomorrow that idea is old news, I’m on to the next. I love being gentle with myself and going where my heart takes me, but sometimes this crazy, all-over-the-place lifestyle makes it difficult to focus long enough to actually finish something. I am loving these graphic quotes and thoughts lately because they combine art with the art of getting things done. Sometimes simple, straight-to-the-point tough love is what I need to see that my tendency to get overwhelmed can lead to a whole lot of nothing being accomplished. Boiling it down to the first step and then actually taking it seems so painful, but once its done it’s really not that bad. But then it starts over again the next day. So I like this simple notepad that reminds me in a tongue-in-cheek way to just do one thing. When it comes to exercise my trick is to tell myself “I’m just going to put on my tennis shoes and workout clothes.” Once they’re on I always feel great and ready to work out.
