Month: April 2017
Lately i find myself relaxing and doing almost entirely nothing on Saturday, its quite fulfilling. You see, i work all week and im quite frazzled by the end of the week, Saturday morning il get up at 530-630, i normally get up at 530 anyway. ill watch some YouTube and catch up on my fav you-tubers , maybe ill putter around the kitchen put away clean dishes and stuff, have breakfast and now (about 10am) ill sit on the couch, start to watch some educational videos, ill then wake up like 1 o’clock, shower make lunch and yes again sit on the couch. What a great way to recharge, collect my thoughts, come up with thoughts and ideas. On Sunday i put everything into motion again, get up vacuum, wash laundry, mop the floors clean, well you get the idea.
Most of the time this works for me, there are some days that i get up and dont feel like doing anything, thats the sad part about my disease you never know when the fatigue will knock you down.
i just read a post on facebook about a woman who is very beautiful, and yet when she looks in the mirror she thinks my teeth should be whiter or or or.
this reminded me that when i was a pre-teen i tried to copy what my friend Tom was drawing. He drew dragons. I LOVED it. i tried to copy it, he looked and said thats really good, i said no, looks nothing like yours, and i tore it up. this happened many times. finally i gave up. in my teens my buddy was painting scenes from a Yes album onto jeans and jackets, i would look at the album, look at the jacket and say move this line to here, i was right. he said you draw? i said no. in my 20s (24-27) in that era, i was bored one day and i was copying Darkwing Duck. My wife , at the time, walked in said what are you doing? I said drawing DW Duck. She said “trying to draw?” this irked me. i was so mad it took 4 hours but i did it, all those years i thought i could not draw, when in fact it was me holding me back, i was too critical too perfect. What i learned was that If you step back for a moment you an look past the little things, the minor flaws, and see the real beauty within.
