10 Minutes and a Scrap of Paper

After a sleepless night, filled with tossing, turning and negative thinking (it creeps in sooooo easily when over-tired!), I spent the day listless, aimless, pointless and frustrated by my own in-action. As I sat at the computer wasting time on Facebook and email and blogs, I suddenly grabbed the nearest pen and a scrap of paper laying on the table. Ten minutes later, I had this! And I felt a whole lot better!! It's not a masterpiece, but it's SOMETHING!! I created SOMETHING!! And while I should know by now that I need to create regularly, even if it's only a 10 minute doodle, I seem to need to learn this lesson over and over and over!!! Guess I need it pounded into my head with a sledgehammer!!! A 10 minute mandala everyday may not be a lot, but it sure beats day after day of NOTHING!!!!

So silly when we know what will work and we don't do it...You just sidetracked a bit and swayed off and then you were right back where you needed to be...if it works let it work for it would have a very hard time doing them and you let if flow so smoothly. like whirling in a beautiful dress around and around.

Robin!!! Thank you for your kind post on my blog today! You lifted my spirits with your kind words! So you live in Orland Park!!! I live in Aurora! Yay! Someone actually lives near me! So cool!

I love this mandala. It's so good and not at all wonky like mine are. :0) I definitely know what you mean. I'm always happier when I'm doodling!

Let's keep in touch!
