Today I started reading week two in The Artist Way. Reading the section about crazymakers, immediately my ex flashed into my mind. Living with him was destructive. Repeatedly he bragged that he deliberately created chaos. He said that creating chaos gave him control and kept everyone off balance. To quote him, “I thrive on chaos”
It’s a relief not to be living in chaos anymore.
Task Three –List twenty things I enjoy doing and the last time I did them
I had a really hard time getting started with this task, I thought I was never going to come up with twenty things I almost gave up at five, but I managed to finish it and actually ended up with two extra things.
