I made it to a week of daily blogging. Amazing. I was kind of testing myself to see if I would actually keep doing it or if I would get bored and I’m finding it’s actually quite a fun thing to do. It kind of forces me to think about what I’m doing and what’s going on in my life, and that’s always a good thing.
An update on meditation.
I’ve meditated 2/2 days, it’s a start. I’ve really been enjoying Tara Brach’s guided meditations. I was used to doing 10 minute meditations, but I’ve realised I get much more benefit from doing the longer, 20 minute ones.
Lately I’ve been so busy with illustration work,
which is great, but I haven’t really been spending time on learning and practicing my drawing. And I feel like I’ve kind of lost my inspiration. A friend of mine gave me some advice and told me to go within, reconnect with Juliet, and to meditate. So I’m on the right track, I just need to make more time for experimentation.
I realised I started a fun project a while ago, #julietandherfriends, my goal was to draw something for every single one of my followers on Instagram. I’ve done 22 so far, (I’ve included some of them are the illustrations at the top of this post), I have a lot more to go, so I might use this project to experiment with and try some fun things.
So if you’re reading this and you also follow me on instagram, tag me in a photo that you’d like me to draw and I’ll add it to my ‘next to draw’ list.
