I thought about saying, "Saying yes VS discernment" but thought better of it. I mean, it could be both.
I said yes to doing the Lucky Dog Art show and fundraiser. A great opportunity for me not only to get on with doing more art, but also combining two of my biggest passions; art and helping homeless, unloved animals.
I had decided I was going to focus on art in my life and yet I offered a People Helping Pets slideshow to the event.
That's the career that I'm supposedly NOT focusing on right now.
But how can I not do something that EXACTY fits the situation and is a passion for me?
So I offered.
And as soon as I was finished with the art for the show and had that delivered, I worked on the slideshow.
And I LOVED IT!
I was really happy with the aesthetic of it, and the new, simpler format.
It took a while to remember the shortcuts I had used before, but I searched my old notes and looked up new answers and it was all fantastic in the end.
I was so excited when I had got it all done. I couldn't believe how quickly I got through it.
Of course when Im working like that I'm glued to the project - on a mission- no food or calls or bathroom breaks. In the flow of creating!
SO, of course, my computer started fussing a bit and then...
You guessed it- lost a whole days work. Aaaaarrrrggh!
It was late, I was tired. And stressed. I still had to check my equipment to pull the whole thing off...
But I decided - there's no way I was gonna sleep anyway, and spent the next few hours recreating what I had lost.
I'm thrilled with the result.
I'm glad I stayed up and did it. It was energizing and relaxing to have it finished.
I love being 'at one' with the project like that - and like I do when I'm making art.
Saying yes- discerning - being willing to see if the universe is trying to help me go in the right direction - or if it's me distracting myself???
In this case - I wasn't sure so I just went for it. ANd I can see that it's all good. And refocus on art as I have promised myself.
And if this event leads to more opportunities for People Helping Pets. I will say yes - with discernment. And love.
I dream of making art, of seeing all pets in loving homes. of people with healthy playful lives, dancing, smiling
