Find what inspires you
I usually don't do week day get togethers, I don't know how it started it just did. I'm sure somewhere a long the way I decided it was just easier to not participate. With work the next day yadda yadda. Yes, I am aware of just how old and cranky that makes me sound.
So with that in mind when I was asked if I wanted to go on a Tuesday night and have a girls night out at the local painting bar I said yep sign me up. Wine and painting what could be a better way to spend a Tuesday night. Mind you its been 16 years since I picked up a paint brush for creative reasons. However I am trying to get out of my comfort zone and come from a place of "yes".
I had a blast last night - I remember why 16 years ago I used to paint. I relaxed I had a good time I created something. Sure it doesn't look like the instructors did, but so what it looks like mine. Yes, a firework or two has the days frustrations taken out in it meh who cares, fireworks are supposed to look fierce.
I got home late but again so what, what would I have been doing anyhow; the gym then watch TV until it was time to go to bed. Ye,s that is how I am used to winding down - but hey the gym is still there and I have a DVR so whatever it was I would have been watching is still there as well.
I did tell D it IS something I will do again - but I think I'd like to take up a painting class at the local college, something more instructional. I think I'd also like to get into photography.
Take sometime and find what inspires you, what you can be passionate about. Then go and DO it..
