Or maybe just a friendly reminder.
So maybe it's a reminder specific to myself
but on the other hand, doodling does feel good.
And we should all do more things that feel good. So I'll say that this is for you, too.
It may seem silly that I need to remind myself to do something that has always brought me so much joy, and on which my entire livelihood is based.
You might be thinking, "whatever, Drama Queen. Isn't drawing what you do for a living?" Well, technically, yes.
But you know how Real Life is.
Too often we forget to just do stuff that's good for us
or that simply makes us happy
for no other reason
than because it makes us happy.
And that, I suppose, is why this is a public service announcement. I am reminding you to do that. So doodling or drawing isn't your thing? What is it from your past and simpler life that you used to do every day after school, every weekend, every moment you weren't busy with something else? Go do that. Even a little bit. Every day.
For me, that thing was drawing. And it always will be. But here in Real Life, I often need to remind myself to do it. And that's what I'm going to go do right now. My little sketchbook is calling...
Want a totally unique, one-of-a-kind sketchbook or journal? My go-to journal and sketchbook buying spot is this great Etsy shop; I love seeing what Cindy has been up to, and end up visitng every time my current sketchbook starts to get filled up. And the supercool little journal pictured above was one of two I received as best-ever stocking-stuffers last Christmas. They're made by this awesome company in Portland, and I'm pretty sure Husband Guy picked them up at this favoritist coolest bestest ever shop here in Seattle.
