That said, I do try to make time for my art. Aside from my model of the Little Prince, I help design and set up the window displays for the Children's Library. I also sketched a portrait of my cousin and her fiance to give them for Christmas. And I designed my Christmas cards, a feat that surprised me.
|This is the window right now. I kept the last design I did and added to it to make it an enchanted forest.|
My only other resolution is to take time to meditate every day. I figure that even if I can only spend five minutes doing it, it's five minutes more than I was doing. I found some simple guided meditations on YouTube and I can do it on my own as well, thanks to years of practicing yoga. Doing too much often makes me panic, and I really don't have time for panicking. Taking a moment to stop and simply focus on breathing in and out helps me to remain calm when I feel overwhelmed.
And now I will put on my mom voice and ask: How are you taking care of yourself?
