I discovered a new blogger today (Desiree Bell)…and today she posted a cool quickie magazine challenge. As she writes:
"go get a magazine and rip out a page. It can be a picture you just like, an article, an advertisement, whatever. As long as it appeals to you for some reason. Then scrap it. Nothin’ fancy. Forget about design. Just stick it down and write something. Even if it’s just "I like this picture…kinda makes me smile." Do it. I can’t tell you how liberating this is."
You know what? It was fun. Took 10 minutes, and BAM! It was done.
It’s funny, today was my day off and I got to induldge in Dr. Phil at 3 p.m. Haven’t seen one of his shows in forever (I never have gotten around to figure out how to record it now that we don’t have a VCR), but it felt so good to get a dose of "GETTING REAL" (as he himself calls it).
I love his style…no sugar coating anything…"you’re responsible for YOU"…tell it how it really is kind of style. And for a person like me, who has her head in the clouds half the time, it’s just what I need to bring me back to reality sometimes.
