GrainSiloEnthusiast 323 Posted June 21, 2020 Author Share Posted June 21, 2020 (edited) Today was day 30. Already past midnight, so it's technically day 31, but I just realized I got 30 days! I'm 1/3 of the way through the first 90 days! My first detox was a 30 day mini detox. I wonder how many days free of gaming I would be had I quit for good back then... We live and we learn. I don't really regret even the time spent wasted because of the valuable lessons I can take away from it. My cravings to game are relatively infrequent and I am able to escort them out quite quickly. They happen most often when I am bored and restless. I don't miss gaming at all. The benefits far outweigh the few good things I reminisce about. Today I filled 9 pages in my sketchbook with lazy mandalas. Lazy mandalas are a lot more than I'd be doing if I was wasting my time gaming. I'm trying to do quantity over quality for now, I've noticed that when I try to bang them out real fast it frees me up and lets me just enjoy the process. I have realized I've been trying too hard to make my works something special, when what really matters is that I'm having a good time creating. Even though I do want to make a career out of my art, it's not like my life depends on it or anything, I am so privileged to have this flexibility. My days are too numbered to turn my passion into a chore. I have to remember why I started drawing in the first place, because I loved to do it.
