I started a project back in December to draw something everyday, because I knew I had the time to, even if it was elaborate and took all day long. During my first week, I learned that I easily forgot about my project. I am very forgetful about most things anyway, so that came as no surprise. Actually, it was even expected. As the week progressed, I noticed I couldn’t think of what to draw. Why? I love to draw, it’s a passion of mine. But I learned that when I challenge myself to think creatively everyday, it gets kinda difficult. And when I don’t feel like drawing, but have to, it gets super difficult because then I have to force myself to think creatively. So I give up (This is why I kept failing that art class in college).
But then I discovered the feeling of accomplishment. If I don’t get anything done that day, not even my daily doodle, I feel discouraged. I feel lazy and I hate it. I get depressed. But, if the only thing I do that day is a daily doodle, I feel great. I accomplished something! I had a goal and I stuck to it, I completed it. And if I complete more goals that day? Great! I feel even better. It’s this feeling of accomplishment that was driving me through the last few days, but I still kept forgetting.
So after about a month of this, mainly the forgetfulness, I finally completed a week of daily doodles. I even have an eighth completed haha
Here are the first seven of my daily doodles:
I hope you enjoyed my silly drawings! Have the best day ever!
