I have a ton of things going on in my life right now. Enough to feel like the solid ground beneath me is not so stable anymore – life has started shifting. In a good way, yes. But I do need to remind myself of that every now and then, when I start feeling overwhelmed and out of control. Whenever I start feeling like that, I reach for my art journal or any piece of paper and start doodling. A while ago I ended up with some pretty handwritten phrases like “Believe in Yourself” and “You Are Worth It”, to boost my own self esteem. When the May 2015 Blogtrain Theme was chosen, I knew these would work perfectly. Renewal, that is what my life is all about right now!
And the peony… how fitting is this plant when it comes to renewal? Every Winter it dies down to the ground, leaving absolutely nothing to remind you it was ever there. And then, in Spring, the pretty leaves unfold themselves and the buds start growing bigger and bigger. When it finally opens up, the huge flowers outshine all others, even if only for a very short while.
I hope these Journal Cards make you aware you are all beautiful, creative and unique. And I love you all!
