I had an okay sleep. Went to bed early because I wasn’t feeling well. Woke after a nightmare but went back to sleep until just before 7 am. I felt okay about starting the day.
I sat down with a cup of coffee and enjoyed every second of it, then dived into French. I got to 200 xp points pretty quickly and for the most part, remembered the words. I probably should have started on a new group of words today.
Soon as hubby had skipped off to work (he probably didn’t skip but I like to think it happened that way), I jumped into my workout. I put on my playlist and made a huge effort to get through it hard and fast. It was an amazing workout. I got to the end and was tempted to do a third round. If I can feel that way after every workout this week, it will be time to increase it.
I had a wonderful comment on yesterday’s post about living in the moment. Thanks Elaine. So I am dedicated to living in the moment. I won’t dwell on the past, I won’t obsess over the future, I will just do each task as it comes and enjoy it as much as possible. So far, so good.
My next task for the day was today’s drawing challenge topic; cityscape. My first thought was to do a drawing of the Sydney, Australia, skyline. It’s my favourite city and I think with so many landmarks, it makes for a wonderful subject. I eventually found this reference picture.
The afternoon was filled with singing, some work on my short story and I spent a good amount of time reading and commenting on blog posts. There are so many interesting and creative people out there. It’s very inspiring.
A new Happy List is underway but I don’t have all the lists yet, so no updates. The list may seem a bit silly but it has really helped us to focus on things that wouldn’t get much attention before. Things that take little time to achieve but can put some big smiles on faces. I’ve added a couple of very indulgent goals for the week. I feel happier already.
I hope you’re having a wonderfully inspired week.
