I know that I didn't post on day 26. I was sick that day and couldn't get myself motivated to do anything. I also didn't post on day 27, but not posting was merely because I got distracted by something, started working on it (it wasn't art), and then forgot to post. I guess that actually makes my 28-day challenge a 26-day challenge, but I can live with that. Life happens.
I learned a lot over the course of this challenge, and I would like to list them out.
1) Before you announce you are going to do a big challenge like this, think it through! If I had thought it through, I never would have done it. Ugh, it was extremely tough, working full-time and doing this, yikes!
2) Accountability is a powerful thing.
3) Pressure won't kill creativity, but your thoughts will. Keep your thoughts positive.
4) Seek inspiration. You can be inspired by things that aren't even in your realm of creativity.
5) Creativity can bring joy. (I already knew this, but think it's essential to state)
6) Step outside of your comfort zone, you will find amazing things there.
7) Be curious. It's fun and inspiring, plus I'm convinced it keeps you young at heart.
8) Challenge yourself in big and little ways. It helps you to grow as a person.
9) You are not alone. Your fears, loves, dreams, insecurities, all of it, are shared by others.
10) It is vital to your wellbeing to create. You can always find time to make something.
I hope you enjoyed the unfolding of this challenge. If you haven't seen all of the entries, please feel free to go back and check them out. From here on out I will be posting once a week. I plan on talking about creativity, animal communication, and being intuitive. Stay tuned for more.
In Gratitude, Karen
