Thanks for popping in. It’s been a busy but very good day here above the garage in the Clarity SHAC-Shack.
Our daily doodle workouts on Facebook LIVE at 10 am are doing me the power of good actually. And if they’re helping me deal with this self-isolation, then I imagine they’re helping you too.
Every morning, as soon as I open my eyes, I have a direction. I know what I’m doing at 10am and where I have to be. I have to consider what to wear, and I have to make myself presentable. There is no time to dwell on anything, there is no time to get despondent or start worrying about stuff I cannot control. Are you kidding ?!?!? Imagine if YOU had 400 + friends turning up at 10am with a pen and a sheet of copy paper!! YOU’d be hopping about too, right?!?
There are things to do, cameras to check, battery packs to check, live streaming to put in place. All this before 9.30, which gives me half an hour to make any adjustments. And in that half hour, I clear my head, say a prayer, work out which way we are headed with the doodles – and then tick tock – it’s 10am.
Friday’s blog a private peek, right? Well, then let me tell you this from the heart. This is the first time in a while that I feel I’m doing something meaningful. For many people, including myself, it is far more important than just a simple doodle session, isn’t it? Bearing in mind that I am a recovering workaholic (some would argue that I relapse most days) this just feels so right.
When YOU post all your doodle-art all over Facebook, when I can see that it is working for you, and that you are surprised and chuffed with your abilities – that just makes me happy. It’s not ego, it’s not a popularity thing. It’s purely knowing that I am doing something USEFUL.
And YOU motivate me to keep going too. It has absolutely nothing to do with driving sales, nothing to do with the business of Clarity. This goes to the very core of our Clarity Ethos. So the whole process swings both ways, you see. From me to you to me to you to me to you – perfect.
Mind you! Now I am eating my words! Tomorrow I’m going into work to pick all the Postcard Sets you have bought !! But again, I do that gladly, because in a couple of weeks time, we will have such a great artworkout when we’re all in tune and singing from the same hymn sheet!
Now it’s time to switch off, and find Dave. He’s definitely here!!
Be safe. Be Happy. Be creative.
Love and hugs,
