I haven't been doing much lately.
I am feeling a bit lost.
A little broken.
Trying to figure out "how" to move on.
I'm short with people I love.
I am taking way too many things personal.
I can't concentrate.
I try. And try.
But, I just can't.
So I decided I wouldn't.
Instead, I signed up for Soul Restoration by Melody Ross.
Melody's curriculum emphasizes art journaling, something I haven't done in far too long.
This is the cover I made for my Soul Restoration journal.
I used cardboard, chipboard, lots of glitter glue, my glue gun, paint and Mod Podge.
Oh, it felt SO good to make this. My hands were completely caked and were hard to wash.
This is the inside front cover.
Inside Week 1's page.
This is the back cover. I might decorate it later.
I've been struggling this week to fulfill all my commitments.
I like to think I can "do it all", but who says I need to?
Why, as women, do we put so much pressure on ourselves to be the best?
The best mom, the best wife, the best employee, the best friend, the best EVERYTHING?
We can't be. So. I am slowly letting go.
It's a painfully slow process.
I'm still learning how to let go of some things.
But I will figure it out, because, after all, you can't let the good stuff in, if you don't get the bad stuff out.
