Do You Doodle?

I figured there were plenty of Merry Christmas posts floating around out there I'd do something different and not wish you a very Merry Christmas until late in the day.

My day was good. Quiet and very productive. Remember the closet I said I needed to clean out? Pack stuff up for Goodwill? Well, I finally got around to doing just that this evening.

Prior to doing so I had the pleasure of speaking with all of my siblings.

This is no easy feat as we are scattered among 3 time zones and no one was celebrating the day together.

I'm grateful to have been able to spend some time with them, even if it was only on the phone.

Which leads me to the question of whether you doodle or not?

I'm not that big of a doodler but tonight I was a pretty active doodler while on the phone with the fab 5.

Yep, if you didn't already know, I have 5 siblings. I'm the baby of 6. I have 4 older brothers and 1 sister. Age gap from oldest to youngest is 10 years. I don't know how my Mom managed, especially considering the obstacles she had to deal with.

So anyway, when I got off the phone I looked down at my piece of paper to see my finished masterpiece.

I really like to doodle geometric shapes apparently. Then, throw in a few flowers, a bumblebee, a couple of triangles that turned into angels, a tree with lots of roots, and an arrow or two for good measure accompanied with some random dots by the flowers and you have a peek into my mind.

According to a few doodle analysis websites, this is what they mean

  • Dots = good attention to detail

  • Tree, bumblebee = sensitive, warm, kind and since my tree has lots and lots of roots, enlightenment

  • Arrows = direction and ambition

  • Geometric shapes = good planner, organized, efficient mind, rational and logical way of thinking, direction, sense of purpose

  • Flower = gentle personality, love of nature, friendly, sociable, feminine/passive aspect of the universe, childlike innocence

The placement of my doodles represents something too. Since my doodles were primarily in the center and top right of the page I am "present oriented", am professional minded, thought to be an extrovert, may seek reassurance and support from trusted others, am a "positive thinker" with a high level of enthusiasm and works well in a team environment.

Hmm, who would have thunk it?

Do you doodle? What kinds of things do you tend to draw? I am interested so if you feel like sharing, please leave a comment. This is a safe place. {wink}

Peace and Love Peeps.

Oh, and Merry Christmas y'all!

I do triangles, and no, I have no idea what that means. I've done it all my life, I have done a tree and I like to draw balloons. Don't ask....
