In my Journal...a collage

Collage in my art journal.

I realized how badly I felt,
physically and emotionally,
mostly brought on
by my (perceived and real)
stress and anxiety...
so...I am starting with a clean slate.

I am Ready.
Ready to think positive thoughts
Ready to only say positive things
Ready to see the best in myself and in others
Ready to let go
Ready to keep the light of love inside,
no matter what the outside sends...
and it will send it,
so I am Ready.

Peace and love to you,

I am a part of nature

 ...but I think maybe I think too much.

 ...or at least more
than the pretty spring flowers do.

Take a breath...
it's still snowing!

It found me
and it is
for me.


Filled with gratitude, I am.

it's just me...

 Admittedly, this is THE longest I have ever
 been away from my blog
AND my art journal.

I have been very distracted
unable to focus
worked way too much
felt blue
traveled a bit.

It feels SO good to be back.

I am remembering how I love to live
with creativity
and my art journaling which is my
best form of self care.

Thank you
being you,

In my journal

One of my goals for this year
is to perceive
my work stress differently....

With a perception change,
I am hoping to be able to
let it roll off of me.

A Simple Wish...A Simple Girl

I'm happy just to be at home
 with my books, papers,
magazines, my pup Ellie at my side, 
warming me, snuggling me for hours
 in my reading chair.

But...if I had one selfish wish:
to always be in a warm climate.

Just sayin'

Oh, I just finished reading
Wild, by Cheryl Strayed.

If you read it, 
tell me what it means to your heart!

Happy Superbowl day,

Spending Time... my journal.

I enjoyed a quick, overnight getaway
for my birthday this past weekend.

Hope you had a good weekend, too!
Happy Monday, friends.
