Working from home has brought out a need to change my surroundings. I can’t be the only one this is happening to. I mean, looking at the same things over and over again can make you want to yell! Before you yell, maybe redoing things might be called for.

Have a Happy Monday!

Why can’t Monday be easy like Sunday morning?

Even Garfield hated Mondays. And so many artists have written songs about their general disdain for Mondays. Let’s be honest, we all dread Mondays and we’ve turned this day of the week into the villain in our life story.

Mondays are like Jeremy Jamm showing up to your lavish holiday party uninvited.

Or,  accepting a zoom video meet and then realizing that you don’t have a camera on your computer or your cell.

Who Are You Talking To?

Muhammad Ali

I’ve been challenging myself to do more positive self talk lately. And as I was sketching this portrait of Mohammad Ali I was thinking about how he talked about himself.

Even if I feel silly about doing something or saying something if it makes me smile or laugh then it was worth it! That’s why I love this quote and why I write about my mishaps.

Yet, while writing them or telling people about them I see the humor in them. for example, when I wrote this post I couldn’t help but laugh. Oh my, the things that frightened me as a child!

Does anyone else sit around staring at their phone rather than doing the things they really enjoy? Or watching Netflix and focusing on what the characters say, do or live through? Often times thoughts and ideas pass through my mind without ever getting out. I don’t write, speak or draw anything for days on end. Its people watching to the extreme extent, very zombielike!

What-ifs can stop you from trying new things. They are a weighted blanket lulling you to sleep in your comfort zone while the world keeps moving on without you! What’s the worst thing what-ifs have done to me? They’ve kept me in places I don’t want to be, in friendships, that needed to end. They kept me stagnant, stuck, and weary.
