Journaling the Exciting Journey

I've been daring to dream,
setting exciting goals,
and believing.

I think when I was younger
I didn't think
I had so many opportunities
to change my mind,

find my heart,
dig deep within,
and be myself...
because I didn't know myself
and I didn't even know I could try to find out.

I think I just thought life happened
to me,

instead of that I was a part
of a universe
and that I needed to do something
that was special to me
being me.

I really think that we were all created for
a very special reason.

It's important to the balance of this world
that we be and become ourselves.

You really are special!

Oh... I feel exactly the same. When I was younger I thought life is something to be mend, not something to be explored and enjoyed. I am so grateful for my transformation and so glad to have the chance to share this journey with kindred souls like you. Have a wonderful day! xx

Very wise words of wisdom my dear. I know I never realized that I could make my life what I wanted it to be. I don't mind getting a late start! Enjoying the journey...

Your pages look great.Love that flower on the first page of the spread.
How are you doing? My students are getting crazed. We went out to draw in the butterfly garden. Some did a very nice job. Some saw things I have no idea how they saw what the saw.
Have a great rest of the week.
