You Choose - Week 24

This week’s pick is about being alive. Nature always makes me feel alive. I love the idea of taking a road trip. Not with a destination in mind, but just for the journey. My heart yearns for experiences like that.

You Choose – Week 23

I loved the color on the image so I decided to make my whole page filled with color. This one says “Some days joy is a gift and other days it’s an all-out battle. Fight on, girl.” and the left side says “I choose to do the difficult things when that is what is required to get to the places that my soul is yearning to go.”

This one is about being brave. Fighting for what I want. Working hard for it. Not giving up. And I fail. I will fail often. But I have to keep retrying.

Note to Self - Week 25

This week’s page was another Life Book lesson. One by Alena Hennessy. I didn’t have anything in mind when I started this piece. I just sat down and let myself have fun with paint.

Message says: See the light in others and treat them as if that’s all you see.

Here are a few detail shots:

Note to self: i want to be the kind of person who sees others’ light. everyone has light. i want to be able to find it and hang on to it. just like everyone has pain. if i see their light and i focus on it with all my might, i know the world will be a wonderful place for me.

Note to Self – Week 24

This week’s page was another Life Book lesson. One by Tam. I wanted my girl to be letting her hair loose in the wind. Letting it go. That’s what I always wish for myself.

Message says: Release, let it go.

Here are a few detail shots:

Note to self: it is okay to let things go. when you hold so tight, you just hurt yourself. be kind to yourself. it’s ok. put it down.

Note to Self - Week 23

This week’s page was a One Little Word lesson. This month is about messages to myself. Where I am now. What I am.

It’s quite shiny:

Note to self: i am both succeeding and struggling and a continuos work in progress. Nothing is ever perfect. Each things takes work and time which means that time and effort cannot go towards something else. You get to choose. Choose wisely. And pay attention to the choices. And also remember that each phase will pass. Be gentle with yourself.

Note to Self – Week 22

This week’s page was another Life Book lesson. One by Juliet Crane which was about making an owl. I’ve always loved her owls so it was such a privilege to get to make one.

Message says: Let your light shine.
