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!
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?
