I have not painted all year! I mean . . . (here comes my excuses) . . . I AM really busy, and if you've spent any time on my website (www.KayZahn.com) you'd understand why. But I really want to paint. I work from 6am to noon on the phone, on the computer and otherwise engaged in my regular life. MiMi wakes up around noon (sometimes earlier, sometimes later) and I really want to take the hour or two that her and I watch TV (while I type on my laptop, like now) and paint at least once a week.
Why I'm not getting to that, I'm not sure. But of course, I have an idea. Always one to work better under pressure, and long ago realizing that most of my pressure comes from my imagination anyway, I decided to give myself a reason to believe there is pressure to do what I say I want to do. So today I did something I'm not sure I will regret or not. I went onto Facebook and looked for a few friends. Not to talk to everyday, or so I have more "friends" in general (even tho my daughter seems to think it's a contest) but to help motivate me to paint.
They won't even have to do anything, except just become a fan and make me think they are watching. Then if I feel like what I'm trying to do is a waste of time, I'll think of them (and my few new friends from YouTube) and get over it.
I KNOW. It's stupid, but it just might work. Gotta go. Oprah is just about to talk to the guy who started Chipotle. I love that place.
Share the Joy, Kay
