Lazy Tuesday Evening Doodle
I did this lazy doodle whilst watching TV, hence all the scrappy mistakes. But I thought I'd share it anyway so that the post had a picture as well as words:-)
Catching up with my contributions to A River of Stones challenge - here are my small stones for days 9-12:
Day 9 – Sunday 9th January 2011
encased in steel,
lost in a concrete jungle.
Day 10 – Monday 10th January 2011
Noisily eating trees
it spits and splutters
glowing with warm pleasure.
Day 11 – Tuesday 11th January 2011
Stampede of small soles
bring smiles with their
cacophony of children’s chatter.
Day 12 – Wednesday 12th January 2011
Busy Wet Road
Sizzling cold lead,
misty trail of speed,

I'm finding these online challenges are helping me get motivated on a grey January when the fluey viruses are still hanging on and the scenery outside is rather bleak.
Some ways of getting motivated are based on fear, criticism and aggression. You know the sort: lose weight by deciding you're disgusting or work harder because you don't want to be a 'failure' or trying to achieve goals set by society/other people that don't really work for you. Personally these methods exhaust me and after years of self-criticism & unrealistic expectations I'm finally realising that the best way for me is to accept who I am, try listening to my intuition and live in the moment. I've got far more done this way than I ever did when chasing my tail and exhausting myself with unrealistic expectations. The online challenges (CED2011, Inspiration Avenue, A River of Stones) I'm taking part in are all about inspiration, support and positivity.
- What positive motivational methods are you using this January?
