When I was getting back into jogging, I saw a meme that really resonated in me. It read:
“Someone busier than you is running right now.”
That logic has stayed with me and become a source of motivation.
We make time for the things that matter. We don’t make excuses. If you’re making excuses, then the thing you’re not doing isn’t really that important.
I am using this logic to keep painting. My apt is small and not at all conducive to painting. I am a working, single mom. I’m stressed pretty much all the time. But if painting matters to me, then I’ll make time for it (even in this little apartment).
Case in point: I’m working on my largest painting yet. This is my “studio”:
I’m making it work because it’s something I want to do. (Albeit somewhat inexplicably bc who decides to be a painter at 44?)
I’m also blogging to keep up some writing. I’m using my cell phone as I type this. I’m making do because writing matters too.
What are you making time for in your life?
