Not literally it has to be said . . . . . that would be too much information!
You know when you are desperate to be creative but all sorts of obstacles get in your way? That's been me for the last few weeks - I am glad of my 366 journal each day so I do something!
Today I had a look back over early journals, the art isn't at all complex but 'art journalling' has always been just that to me - spilling something that is going on inside on to the paper.
I feel this today as I am aware of sadness in folks I care muchly about - I know I can't fix stuff but maybe wishing I could helps in someway?
One of my many mantras (I think that might contradict the idea of a mantra but never mind!) is from Helen Oxenbury's book 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt.' I learnt the text of the book off by heart when my girlies were little but have learnt it by life since.
When faced with an obstacle or difficult situation or even just a big pile of work the only way through it is through it so face the fear and get on with it.
It helps when you have folks who believe in you and affirm you along the way - why not take the time to tell one person today that you believe in them - and yes, that person can be YOU!
So now I need to get through my constipation and go and get on with it don't I?!
Have a great week folks, thank you for stopping by.
