I've been seeking for ways to get out of my negative heavy mood. I don't like to live depressed even though one would believe I do considering the time I've spent in that state of mind along the centuries. When I can't provoke the change in the brain tides to a more positive vibe, I turn to look for professional motivators out there. Somehow, I've always found something that kicks my butt and gets me back to my feet, despite my lack of enthusiasm to do so. I just know I can't wait for the joy to come back. I would die waiting. I am convinced joy is something I have to work on and produce and it is not subjected to the circumstantial events around me. It's a switch inside. At least, that's how this dragon works and knows to be true.
I've found some good insight in a Tony Robbins video. I highly recommend it. He says motion creates emotion. He claims it is easier to start the day with more energy if you start it with exercise. Your emotion affects your physical posture and so, your physical posture may affect your emotions one way or another. I won't cover it here and now. I would rather have you listen to it and get your own conclusions.
Anyway, I followed his advice and I started dancing in the mornings. I dance very well, I must say, and I love dancing. I also heard the advice from different sources, repeatedly, to devote time to some activity that really makes me happy; an activity I enjoy so much, it makes me forget everything else. The choice was obvious. I got creative with pens and colors. I want to show you the results. I have spent several hours grinning as I've watched my creation dance at the tunes of Disco Inferno, Guardians of the Galaxy's version of Hooked on a Feeling, Come and Get Your Love (and Father Dragon can dance better than Star Lord), Ain't No Mountain High Enough and December 63.
No matter what's the song, the point is it still makes me grin. It's the first animation I've ever done from scratch and it truly gave me joy. I hope it does to you too, at least a bit.
