I have used every excuse in the book:
- I don't have time. I'm a single mother raising two kids (they're grown and gone now)
- I don't have a place to work.
- I don't have enough light.
- I can't work at night.
- I work full time. I have to wait till I can retire.
These are the excuses just off the top of my head.
Someday, some day some day. But as I get older I'm getting scared to think in terms of someday.
Recently, I've been in getting ready and planning mode. I read a lot about art, artists, art marketing, how to make it, how to survive, etc. etc. etc. All in the name of preparing for some day.
Well today is some day. Beginning today, I will commit time. Starting with 6 hours a week, I will commit 2 hours Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings to making some kind of art. I am going to create an art practice habit. I just read, it takes 66 days to create a change in the brain called a habit. I will begin today, day one, to committing to 66 days. Wish me luck and courage.
