Well I have had one of the busiest weeks at work for me with the end of the financial year. My head is so full of numbers, payroll, tax and money that it has been really hard to do anything else each night other than chill out and sleep. Luckily tomorrow is the end of the working week for me and I have one week on holidays at home so I will be getting back into my art journalling course.
It has been a great journey for me creatively and internally. It has made me spend time each day on ME which, when you start doing that you realise how much you didn't do it enough before. It has made me ask questions about myself like what really makes me happy, what I think is positive about me and what are my favourite things. After getting over the first hurdle of the blank white page, I feel less afraid of marking it and cant wait to jump in and create each time I get it out. Now the challenge is getting it out every day.
Here are two more pages that I finished last night. The first is the 10 positive things about me. The second is an indication of where my mind has been this week at work surrounded by numbers.
The course is almost finished now and Kerryanne has set her little chicks free to fly on their own. I must say that I feel a bit like its my first day at big school saying goodbye to Mum for the first time. I want to run back into her arms but I'm excited about being independent. I want to hold on to the security of what I know but know I have to spread my wings.
