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.

You Choose – Week 19

This week’s pick is about giving. It says “i stop and celebrate small victories.” To receive everything, one must open one’s hands and give. I wanted to have much fun with paint on this one. I love all the colors on it. I want to remember to give. To be open. To have a sense of abundance. I feel that abundance in my core.

some sweet shimmers on this one:

You Choose – Week 18

This week’s pick is about being serene. Journaling always centers me. It helps me clear my thinking. Gives me perspective. Helps me remember what I love most and what matters most. It’s the way the wiser version of me comes out.

You Choose – Week 16

This week’s pick is about serenity. There’s nothing like the outdoors and tall trees and soft, gentle wind to remind me of what matters most. To bring me back to the place of serenity and calm and connection with nature. It always grounds me and I wish I did it more often.

just a few shimmers on this one:

This week’s pick is about being open. believing that wonderful things are happening all the time and can happen at any time. Being open to receive them. Noticing them when they do. Allowing all of the goodness to wash over you. And opening your arms wide to receive it all.

You Choose – Week 14

This week’s pick is about abundance. An abundance of kindness. Being open to receiving it and to giving it. Being kind even when the other person might not fully deserve it. Being kind for no reason. Being kind without waiting for anything in return. Being kind because it makes me feel wonderful to be kind. My goal this year is always be as kind as I can be, and then be a bit kinder than that.

no shimmer on this page. :)

You Choose – Week 13

This week’s pick is another serenity pick. I used to absolutely adore taking baths. I remember, as a kid, I’d draw myself a bath, full of bubbles, put some fruit in a bowl and dive in with a wonderful book. I’d spend hours in the bath. Until the water got so chilly that I had to get out. I used to love the bubbles. I used to love the calm that spread over my skin, my body in that water. I could use more of that any time.

here is a side look for the shimmer; not too much shimmer on this one:

here’s to embracing serenity.

You Choose - Week 12

This week’s pick painting. I love paint. I love the feel of it on my fingers. I love how alive it makes me feel. I love color. I love learning. I love its texture. I love how it makes me feel. I am so grateful that I discovered mixed media and never looked back. Here’s to painting for the rest of my life!
