This morning on Facebook, Patti Digh’s status read “Today I am practicing giving up my need to be right. What are you practicing today?”.
My response :
“I am practicing doing have-to's with a want-to attitude.”
That was what came to me in the moment but you know what ?
I lied !
I am actually practicing ignoring the have-to’s and doing the want to’s instead !!!
Hence two blissful hours of art journal painting instead of running Monday morning errands or even getting dressed.
I created the page above inspired my the Alexi Murdoch song that I love.
(Okay, mostly bliss – I got lost in not liking my piece for about half that time, but it turned around eventually!)
And know what else ?
I think I am really good at leaving the have-to’s aside…
Maybe even a little too good sometimes…
Maybe I need to practice something else ?
The have-to’s await…
Happy Monday, Marvelous Ones !
