Be Yourself...

I haven't been feeling like myself lately. Sometimes the road gets bumpy. But then I feel like I have to have journal therapy...and that made me want to play with paint...then texture.That bubble wrap's been around for a while....

Then I added pieces in bold black & white.

You know I like collage papers...
I stamped and doodled.

After I began writing, it flowed. I feel better for having gotten it out.

I have had a hard time feeling like myself, especially in my classroom,
where I've always felt so right.

I will get past this.

I feel the same at times. I hope you will feel 'yourself' soon. Love your journal. The colours are striking!

i think you are going about it exactly as you should
and as you continue
to journal
and doodle
and create....
you will come right back around to "you"!
where you were patiently waiting all along!

A really wise woman, beautifully young in her old age, once told me that if I wanted to be well(into my later years)....be myself. It struck me as so very odd. Now, years and yearnings later, I see the wisdom in her words. I love your heartfelt art:)

Love this! the colors are wonderful - some of my favorites!!

I think sometimes when we are in the middle of change or some growing there is a point where we don't recognize ourselves. But we will!!
