Part of my job this week as a "recovering artist" (or at least one who is finding her sense of self) is to go through some of the tasks at the end of this chapter. I could complete each of these tasks this evening and say "See, I'm done!" but I don't think that is the point. Instead I am going to list the tasks and ask this week progresses I'll do something here and there until I reach the end of Week Two.
- Determine where my time goes by listing five major activities and how much time I spent on them, dividing the list by "shoulds" and "wants."
- List 20 things I enjoy doing and the last time I did each thing.
- Out of that list, find two things to do this week -- even if it's only for 15 mintues.
- Re-read my affirmations.
- List ten imaginary lives (things I think in my dreams, if I were another me, I'd do) and see if there's some activity I could do that's related to a pretend Me. (Confession: One imaginary life is be a singer, like a singer of showtunes or Big Band classics. Today, I indulged in that a big by singing "Don't Rain on My Parade" at the top of my lungs in my car. It was no Carnegie Hall, but then again I'm no Barbara. I think we'll call it even for the week.)
- List ten "tiny" changes, then see about setting one in motion.
