1. What are you Grateful for? I found myself complaining and moaning about the amount of work I had on my plate this afternoon. Things I need to draw, Illustrations I need to finish, "admin work" I need to do. Then it hit me. I'm literally doing what I wanted to be doing when I was younger. Draw for a living. But the complainer in me made me forget that in the midst of boredom you get from working on long projects. But in hindsight, my day is filled with things I wanted to do and I decided to do. and boy does that make me happy and grateful. Here's a question that helped me, What should you be grateful for, but aren't?
2. Willful Ignorance. Willful Ignorance - The act of keeping yourself blind to the consequences of your actions willfully because you cant face the reality. This is something I used to do much of in the past. I won’t state/specify my goals because I didn't want to know if/when I failed at them. Me specifying my goals provided the conditions of failure and hey, who like failure!? So I went by without specifying anything and called myself a “free flowing spirit” Slowly, I learned to sort this part of myself over time and my tolerance for failure has improved (and so has my success rate. Interesting) Anyways, I just wanted to talk about this today because I was being ‘willfully ignorant’ with the realities of my time lately and was called out for it. And I’m happy to say that I’ve started working on it. Here’s a question for you, what are you ignorant about wilfully? What is something that you know you shouldn’t do but you are?
