Note to Self – Week 27

This week’s page was another inspired by a Life Book lesson. But It’s just one I did when I decided I wanted to do something, anything.

Message says: Everyday has light and dark in it. Remember: there will be light tomorrow, too.

Here are a few detail shots:

Note to self: i want to remember that there’s light even in the darkest day and dark in the light days. Each day has elements of both. I want to be able to see the light in my dark days and notice that they are there. This is how life becomes magical. In always seeing the light, no matter how small it is.

Note to Self - Week 26

This week’s page was another Life Book lesson. One by Tam. Sometimes the simplest ones are my favorite. I loved drawing this apple. It says “when in doubt go back to basics.”

Note to self: if you’re not sure what’s going on or what you want or how you want to proceed, go back to the basics. basics of who you care about, what you stand for, what matters most. Always go back to the basics.

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.

This week’s pick is about abundance. It says “I really just want to be the warm yellow light that pours all over everyone I love.” I want to be generous with my love. I want to give it freely. I want to find something to love about every single person I know.

i love love the yellow on this one:

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.
