Day 6

Here’s the back-story: In the summer of 2006, a pastor from Kansas challenged his congregation to go 21 days without a complaint. His intention was to help them each to see the brighter side of life. Each individual was given a purple bracelet, and each time he or she gossiped, whined, moaned or complained, he or she had to switch the bracelet to the other wrist. The three-week countdown then started over. Apparently, habits form, good or bad, in as little as 21 days.

Taking this idea of developing a good habit lifestyle, I decided to try to paint every day for 21 days in a row. I'm on day 6. It's an exciting adventure!

Even though it's only day 6, there is a noticeable dwindling of paint. They are going to love me at the art supply store these next few weeks. Anticipating replenishing painting supplies during the 21 day total, the cash amount I likely will spend might pay this month's rent at the art supply store.
