The day started off slow. I could barely drag myself out of bed and get normal morning things done. By 9 am, I was feeling lousy but determined to workout. I worked out and almost enjoyed every minute of it.
It definitely felt as though the day was dragging. I was waiting on my arts and craft supplies and it felt like I couldn’t do much of anything else. Thankfully, with the internet at my fingertips, I decided to do the two tasks I posted about yesterday.
I decided to start with meditation. I opened Youtube and typed in ‘meditation’ and then auto suggestions lead me to the search of ‘meditation guided for positive energy’. I figured because my afternoons seem to lack that, it was probably a good place to start.
After watching a handful of 10 minute meditation programs, this one had made me feel the most relaxed. I’ll add this to my morning routine. I’m really interested to see if it can keep me more focused through the day. Might even try and get hubby to do it too.
Then I started searching for a photo challenge. I jumped on Pinterest and searched for ’30 day photo challenge’. There were enough results for at least 10 years worth of months. Most started with a self picture, which I wasn’t that keen on. Some had photos I knew I could only take if I left the house, I also wasn’t keen on that (at the moment.) The joys of being agoraphobic.
I did find three photo challenges that I thought I’d like to try. One is a 52 week challenge. I’m guessing that since it’s one photo a week, you could probably do it at any time during the week but I’ll just do it the days it’s listed on. That will start on May 7.
I’ll probably start a second photo challenge in a week or two.
I also found a writing, drawing and painting challenge that I’d like to try. I’ll start the writing challenge on May 7 also, seeing that Tuesday is the official start of my week. (Hubby’s weekend is Sunday/Monday)
Considering I’m pretty new to painting and drawing, I might delay the start of those for a few weeks to a month and just practice the skills in the meantime.

My arts and craft supplies arrived in the afternoon. Sadly, there were a few things I thought I’d ordered, that I didn’t, like good sized knitting needles. Hubby will need to go hunting for some for me. Pictured below is my box of goodies from Lincraft.
While I still feel a little disappointed at my attitude today, I pushed through and got some things done when all I wanted to do was sleep. That’s a win in my book.
Tomorrow I will give meditation a try and start working on my home/creative project blog.
I hope I have inspired someone to start their own creative journey.
