Blog Challenge (Day 3): My Perfect Day


I’m taking a 10-day blog challenge by Natalie Sisson, the suitcase entrepreneur who is an inspiring artist of a lifestyle I would like to attain. Let’s go!

Day 3

Today’s all about my Perfect Day imagined.  I heard the more clarity, the better you will focus on achieving that.  This won’t be easy, but hopefully a good start, so here it goes:


In the morning, I wake up in a big bed (6-7am) with a white goose comforter and a temperapedic mattress and pillow.  I meditate for a half-hour, then write in my gratitude journal.  Next I go outside for a short walk.  When I come back, I shower and make a nice breakfast.  Either a breakfast burrito or a green smoothie.

When I come back, I paint for 3 hours.  It seems like a reasonable time block to be productive for me now.  I have to create something or at least experiment with stuff.  I can go outside and paint or stay in the studio and listen to flamenco or Genesis music.


Eat a big lunch, such as a big salad or tuna fish sandwich.  If I’m doing a commission, I can work on that for a few hours or do some marketing stuff.  After I’m done that, I can walk to my favorite cafe and hang out or go see a movie, or take a little trip.  Walk in the woods.  Even teach a private art lesson.


Time to really chill out.  I would love to visit art gallery openings, that’s what I miss about Santa Fe.  Just hanging around, people watching and talking with other artists.  Then after, go to a local cafe with friends and have a nice meal, watch some Flamenco.  Spend some quality time with friends or family.

And get to bed by 11pm.


So this is my perfect day.  I may change a few things around, but this is what I thought of on the fly.  What is your perfect day like?
