Tammy at Daisy Yellow is still doing her Prompt 6 until the end of May, then on to ICAD (index card a day-YAY) I have enjoyed these prompts for my art journal immensely, they take me out of my comfort zone sometimes, but I almost always end up with something I like and my "own" I have missed a couple here and there, but I am kind of proud of myself. I have stuck with this probably the longest I have with anything in my life (except my family of course haha) I give myself a star for this accomplishment!!! I plan on continuing with my creative time, I have found it is essential to my well being. We all need to find that THING in which we can find peace, we can quiet our mind and listen to what our hearts are saying to us. Not everyone will understand what you do, whatever that may be, but remember it is not for THEM, it is for YOU!!! This was a huge hurdle that I had to (and still struggle with) get over. It is our longing for acceptance and perfection. Well, guess what? Not everyone is going to like you or the things you do, and we will NEVER reach perfection. There will always be something better that you could have done or said. Pay no heed to this though, you are doing this for yourself and not for the end product. Whatever you do, whether it is art, gardening, cooking WHATEVER, just do it for the sheer enjoyment of it, with no thought of how it will turn out, and if we can do this just imagine how our life will be opened to new possibilities. Our hearts and head will be opened to new experiences and we will grow in more ways than we can count! I am still trying to follow through with this advice, but being a people pleasing, perfection seeking, somewhat insecure woman, I struggle through with it. But I won't give up! I need to leave myself alone and let what will happen happen!! Remember you are AMAZING!!! Loves and hugs!
