Here is my latest journal page.
Did you know that a 40-something woman has lots of physical stuff to deal with, especially when she is on the round side (okay, very round), kind of hates exercise and loves her sweet stuff ?
It has come to my attention in a big way that NOW is the time to start facing the issue of how I take care of myself, or in many ways, don’t take care of myself. I do know a couple of things for sure about how I will have to go about making some major changes in my life.
I will need to do things in baby steps, changing little behaviors here and there that will add up to bigger ones. While I used the cold turkey method to quit my 20 year smoking habit two years ago now, I think making changes in eating, exercising and a lot of self-care needs to be done in a more gentle, long term goals for me. Otherwise, I quickly get overwhelmed and give up before I have started !
And most of all, I will have to make the changes with LOVE and Appreciation for the incredible Being that I am and for the Vessel that was giving to me to make my way through the world.
Change is on the way, my friends. Necessary change. And you can bet that the Queen will make good use of her Creativity and her Big Heart to make it happen.
In addition to talking a little bit about some new projects of mine, I wanted to be sure and share some of the great stuff that some incredible bloggers I know are up to right now.
Seth at the Altered Page is once more organizing his Buried Treasure project where he links together a whole bunch for bloggers who have chosen to revisit one of their favorite posts from the past ! So cool !
The event takes place tomorrow, Thursday July 15th and yours truly will be digging through the archives today to find something that I would like to re-post especially for the occasion. You can still join in – head over to Seth’s blog and drop him a comment !
Have you been checking out all the great Art Journalers that Connie at Dirty Footprints Studio has been promoting all month ? She is featuring 30 different artists for 30 days in the month of July. Each artist is sharing how they got into art journaling, their favorite tools and materials and giving bits of inspiration that are great for the newbie and the more experienced art journaler alike. (Be sure to check out July 22 post – that’s when the Queen of Arts makes an appearance !)
I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday, Beautiful Ones !
Big Love !
