So I’ve been in quarantine mode since March 19th. The first couple of weeks were super productive. I already had a whole spring cleaning list planned into my vacation schedule. One week in San Deigo and one week at home cleaning. Guess which week didn’t happen? I was really looking forward to SD since I took zero vacations last year. Turns out this quarantine was what I actually needed. Here’s a recent video of me ranting about it on youtube. 😁
It really is a great time to take a look at your life. What are you happy with? What are you not so happy with? You could totally Netflix your days away I suppose. If you are, I hope that life is good and there is nothing that needs fixing 🤨
After all my cleaning and organizing I took a few days off to do nothing. Then that day came…what am I going to do with my life now? I admit I had a couple of days where my anxiety levels were a tad high. When you’re used to getting up every morning, nine hours already filled for you, and suddenly, you have nothing to do after coffee, it’s a bit of a shock to your mental state. Because face it, most of us live like robots.
This quarantine has been a blessing for me. It’s given me the gift of – living my life how I really want to. Being able to completely dive into my personal projects is such a wow factor amid all this upheaval. I’m not going too crazy about staying indoors since I’m already naturally a homebody (if this goes into summer there will be a problem Huston).
I have the time and energy to be creative. When you have 9 hours of your day doing what you have to and not what you really want to do…ugh. I appreciate my job. I really do. But now that I know what it would be like to just be creative with no limits, it’s given me a real vision of what is possible. I’ll probably go back to work at the end of May. No biggy. I need to get paid haha This time things will be different. I have a clear vision and a solid WHY.
Let’s say you’re an artist. You paint every day and post your art on Etsy. Months and months go by and nothing sells. After a while you think, I need to focus on what does work. In the earthly plane, we need money for almost everything.
Work becomes a priority over painting. You still paint. Just not as much. All of a sudden you get a notification that an item has sold! Another sale two weeks later. Now you know your stuff can sell. There’s the proof you needed. You keep your day job of course but you also make your painting a must, a priority as well. That’s how I feel. I know what high-quality chocolate tastes like now. I will never go back!!! 😈
So…what have you been up to? Hastag #QuarantineLife
