Sharing is caring, and I totally care about you, so I MUST share my latest obsessions...
I've been IN LOVE with Will Smith lately. He's grown way beyond the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and he's a super dream boat when it comes to inspiration. I've been watching these super short videos for a few weeks and it's been helping me to get my head in the game. Not just with the art gig, but with many of my personal goals. Goals like managing my stress, reaching out to friends, exercise, and food control.
I feel like a boss.

The OTHER thing I'm totally gaga over is this Essentrics exercise. I had sent out an email to our little CMA Community (you should totally sign up if you haven't already, it's free and easy and at the top of this page...), and it was great, but JUST THIS MORNING I dug a little deeper into the Essentrics world and struck GOLD.
This is way more suited for a wider range of fitness levels, and is delicious. I'm not telling you to do it (because I'm not your doctor), but you should at least go gaze upon it's loveliness.
That's it for now my friend. I'm off in a bit to meet up with my art rep lady, Sarah, to see what the future holds for my critters on cards.
...several hours later...
I just got back from my meeting with Sarah at Sherman's. We went over the cards and journals. O. M. G. I'm so excited. She'll be wheeling and dealing these items around to brick and mortar shops around New England. I'm super jazzed about having these little guys out in the world. We've been using Hallowell Printing Company, and I love the quality! Yay!!!
And, of course, as well as business, we also talked a lot about authenticity, and doing the stuff that makes us juice up. It's hard, you guys, to find that YOU you once were. That YOU that used to make time for the learning, painting, planting, whatever. It's so easy to fall into roles that seem more important (usually as a care taker or as an employee). I get it. But man-oh-man, when you take even just a little bit of time to do the stuff that makes you sparkle? Damn, that's when life comes together. It makes you whole. It makes you better at playing those other roles.
So do me a favor, and entertain the idea of tapping into that stuff that makes you happy. We'll ALL benefit from it. xo
