About this series
I would be lying if I said I always wanted to do limited edition art prints. It seemed like so much admin. However, then the idea came on doing limited edition art prints but on journals. That's when I thought- "Hey, now here is something that tickles my fancy." I've been doing a lot of soulsearching for the past year for the past couple of months. At the same time.
I've done quite a bit of business rediscovery with Jo Petzer (who I have written about) from Cosmic Creations. Jo has been fantastic! She has helped me think bigger and broader when it comes to my business. I ran a survey a few months ago and one thing that came up a few times was a request to create less expensive items in my store. I didn't want to create cheaper items for the sake of just creating something more affordable.
But, I wanted to do it in a way that was authentic and meaningful. Aha! I decided to make use of the personal affirmations that have helped me. As you know, I'm also a blogger so it's obvious that I enjoy writing. But writing is scientifically proven to be therapeutic which you can read more about over at Psych Central.
Each journal's story
I AM EVOLVING
Often (very often), I find myself in a space where I am reminded of my shortcomings. And more often than that, I tend to forget that when I find myself in these times, I need to tell myself that I may not be perfect, but I am still evolving. Maybe it's a bit of psychology or perhaps it's a bit of self-love, but it has helped me to be a little more gentle on myself and the pace at which I learn.
I AM CHERISHED
Following on from being a tad more gentle and nurturing, I have come to realize the value of cherishing who I am. What comes to mind often is looking at how fiercely I love my children or friends. Why am I not loving myself in that way? This is where the I AM CHERISHED affirmation has helped me see myself in a different light. I am learning to love myself, in a way that only I know how to give.
Yes, this is an actual potato from my cupboard. When I saw the stems and leaves growing from that "dying" potato, I thought of my own growth. I thought of all the possibilities that came from stepping out of my comfort zone, but also the growth of just being and "going through life". Sometimes we feel like a stale potato. We don't have hope. We don't think we will ever be used for a great stew or soup. But maybe you weren't meant for that soup anyway. Maybe you were meant to be planted? Those are possibilities...
