"A Little OCD Never Hurt Anyone"

Updated: Jan 28, 2021

In my last post, I talked about sending out an intention to add more creativity to my life. I had no idea what that would be or what it would look like. So I revved up my computer and created a Word doc named 'Dream Job Journal'. I called it that because I didn't have any idea where I was going, but I felt it important to document my progress. #ListenToYourGut #BostonArtist #Freehand #Art #Illustrations

My husband and I are super organized (to a fault (!)). We tease each other, saying, "A little OCD never hurt anyone." Except that, rather than describe ourselves with some arbitrary psycho-babble, we changed it to ATD. As in attention to detail. So I built a spreadsheet in Word to document every move I made on this journey. And anytime I talked with someone or posted something on Facebook that concerned adding more creativity in my life, I recorded it in the doc. Every. Single. Time. #ArtRequiresDiscipline

Here's a screenshot of the first page of that Dream Job Journal. In case you're wondering, that Word doc is now more than 100 pages long. And counting.
