Something New #4 and #5

1

February 25, 2011 by Darlene McC

Yesterday I was struggling to fit in my Something New by midnight so I asked the wisdom of my friends:

And Ms Rachel Smallwood had some great ideas – my favorite (and most simple) was what lead me to #4:

#4: Drawing Simultaneously With Both Hands

Conveniently, I was out at a bar making a new friend while I was trying to decide and he had two pens and a scrap of paper.  I asked him “What should I draw?”.   He replied “What’s in your heart.”  I did:

Mirrored Hearts

It was fun, and an interesting experiment ~ I drew them as mirrors of one another, which the gentlemen assembled at the bar found very cool.  I think I’m going to try a larger, more focused (and less alcoholic) version of this experiment this weekend.

#5: None of Your Business!

And now, the unveiling of a new graphic:

 

I’ve been thinking about what I’m willing to share and drew a few lines for myself.  After all, my grandmother can read and if you don’t want someone to know something you don’t write it down.  Something New #5 was such thing; hence Billy the Bigmouth Bass here.

One thought on “Something New #4 and #5

  1. Rachel says:

    Good idea to have a personal post edit, never know who’s reading. 🙂

    OK, ideas round 2

    1 – brush your teeth with the opposite hand
    2 – take a shower in the complete dark
    3 – at some point during the night ( or day if you are brave) run up and down your stairs naked (shoes are ok, it is NY)
    4 – roast a marshmallow on the burner of your stove and make a s’more
    5 – Open the window and ask the first boy who walk by “What day is it today?” and when they reply say “damn, I thought it was christmas day, and I had a goose all picked out”
    6 – go an entire 24hrs without saying anything, not one word. written, signed, charaded ok, just no talking.
    7 – cut up an old sweater and use the sleeves to make new mittens for yourself (the cuffs become the wrist part)
    8 – #illegal# – jump a turnstile, take the train without paying. IF you get busted, just show them your unlimited card and say you were just playing…
    9 – make your own set of dice out of clay /or it’s equivalent (even the D20)
    10 – go to work in two different shoes, see if anyone notices.

    There ya have it, some ideas to ponder.

Sometimes you just need a change in perspective 🤔 . . . I haven't posted much the last few months as I underwent some huge personal transformations. Some days have been a struggle; other days the progress has been obvious. Through it all my meditation and self care have let me see my own resiliency. They've taught me to look beyond my flitting thoughts to my deeper self and work to my real truths. They've also shown me that much of life is what I do with it and how I interpret what's happening around me. . . . Life also continues to reinforce that a little bit more strength and a lot of humor go a long way. 💪🤪😎 aaaand: First post in the new apartment!! Enjoy that dramatic lighting. . . . #headstand #handstand #meditationmonday #meditate #meditation #progress #progressnotperfection #strong #strongwoman #yoga #EhlersDanlos #Hypermobilityehlersdanlossyndrome #heds #myillnessdoesnotdefineme #yogaeverywhere #alignmentyoga @luna_alignment_yoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #changeyourheartchangeyourmind
How do you use your downtime? A cancelled client gave me the extra time to get organized, to write, and to focus my mind. So often we spend the gift of a little extra time getting sucked into glowing rectangles - wasted time on our phones, TVs, and tablets. . . Can you commit to yourself today to harness your full potential? How are you going to feed your good wolf? . . . #feedthegoodwolf #potential #progressnotperfection #coaching #organization #bujo #selflove #selfcareisselflove #writer #feedyourdreams #starbucks #icedcoffee #morningglow #curlyhair #curlyhairdontcare #bighair #bighairdontcare
Not gana lie... that felt heavy 😅 (scroll to see my exit face) . . One thing consistent training has taught me: work through sh*t. Things will get hard, they'll feel weird, you won't understand it - keep going. Explore the challenge. Hunt for someone who's handled something similar and learn from them. I'd be nowhere without the support of my mentors and friends who I learn from constantly. 😘 . . . This was Day 1 of phase 2 of my summer prep program. Phase 2 is all volume work... I'm already tired! . . #girlswholift #fitchick #teameqx #eqxgreenwichave #staywild #gypsychild #rdl #deadlift #deadliftsaresexy #thickthighs #thickthighssavelives #legsfordays #liftspiration #fitpro
