I used to do my daily updates…well, daily. I had gotten into a rhythm but it started to feel forced. Sure some days I would sit and type what was on my mind, but I wasn’t enjoying what I was writing. I cannot explain why, I just wasn’t. I think I had made it feel like an obligation and once something becomes an obligation it loses some of its luster. I should be doing this because I enjoy it, right?
So the past couple of posts have been fun. I wanted to post something that seemed to be a theme on me yesterday. Little pick-me-up videos. One I found over on Google+. The other two are songs, one I heard on the radio, the other came up on my music shuffle.
The first of from the PBS Painter, Bob Ross. I used to watch him paint as a kid and be amazed watching him. Someone took a bunch of his more famous quotes and made it into a music video. If you’re an artist you can always change the words “Every day is a good day when you paint” to whatever suits your needs. For me, when you write, works great.
The second is a Katy Perry Song. Yes, I’m not a big Katy Perry fan because more of her songs about topics I can relate to. But Firework is one of those uplifting songs that’s just fun.
And finally is Queen. How can you NOT be inspired by Queen? I had always heard the song, but never really listened closely to the lyrics. This song is just as inspiring and uplifting as Firework.
If you’re feeling a little down and need something to pick you up, give a listen to any or all three. I’ll be back tomorrow with more updates on stuff I’m working on. For now, I’m going to get back to working on it all.
