Yep. Today is the first day of Lent. I’m glad I wrote my follow-up post to how last year’s Lent project turned out because I desperately needed Steph’s comment on that post. She said:
“My goal is to overcome fear of success. Mine is to work through a series of smaller goals in both my professional and personal life, taking on ‘What I Really Want’ with fearless abandon. So this will be the year all of my excuses died. And the year that I want to see what I am made of…”
I like the idea of pursuing the things I really want with “fearless abandon”. I also love the idea of challenging myself and discovering what I am made of. I have challenged so many other aspects of my life, but creativity has fallen by the wayside. I have a lot of unused or underused skills and talents that need focusing and direction.
My goal for the next 40 days of Lent is to devote a total of 40 hours to drawing. I want to make it really specific. 40 hours of drawing LGBT related cartoons, portraits, or political statements. Leigh used the phrase “body of work”. Time to start putting that together.
