This is one of them Therapy sessions, where I empty my Mind on the topic of Video Game Addiction.

99 – NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

2/23/2020
NO! That's what I said out loud during the recording of a YouTube video when I got hit with a wave of Negative Thoughts about my voice. Once I had finished recording, I realised it would make a good topic for this weeks About the Tings episode of the So Free Art Podcast. Negative Thoughts are Pretty Powerful, and Super Sneaky, but once you start putting Awareness on the Mind, you see them for what they really are... LIES!

This one's a Mystery!

Some of the tings I talk about include: How Painting has a life of it's own, Running, Honey and Lemon...
