A strange phenomenon of life is that we often procrastinate the biggest thing, the most challenging thing. For me it used to be drawing - all that pressure I put on myself to draw daily did not help. Now that my biggest challenge is writing the pilot script for Squishy Blueberry, I find myself drawing all the time. It's not clear whether lifting the pressure from drawing is what has made it more fun, if it's practice that makes it less scary, and/or if it's that, relatively, it seems fun compared to the challenge of writing and so now it's my new activity of procrastination. Whatever the reason, I am so glad to draw often, and find myself really enjoying it as a top 5 activity in my life, rather than feeling anxiety around it.
is an expression of my Inner Child, reminding me to have fun and make room for play, while teaching me lessons I did not integrate from Kindergarten about the imagination and believing in myself.
