Making it Happen :: Art Journaling

I have spent much of the past week completely alone.
After 10 months of constant
talking and listening and doing, doing, doing,
it has been a big change.
This alone and mostly silent time
has been spent decompressing and reading,
walking, thinking about my life
and my place in this big world.

Yes, I am an introvert who re-energizes with quiet time.
Could you tell?!

But this is more than that.
This is a monumental leap for me.

More later.
Just be now, though.

 Feel the unending Summer
and lose the urge to keep count of dates and deadlines.

These will be the days without number.

In friendship,

I am so proud of you for being willing to take this quiet time for yourself. Rich rewards will follow.

I hear you sister! I am definitely an introvert, too! LOVE the calm, peaceful. deep, meditative, prayerful joy of alone time with no fixed schedule. Your page is utterly delightful as are you! :) Gwyn

Stunning page .... Love the silhouettes running across the bottom of the page, & the wording inside your flower. Hugs Juls

I've been a loud, extrovert for most of my life, but in these past few years, I seek solitude. It is immensely healing. Good for you for taking the time!

Kathy as an introvert myself I completely understand the desire and need to be alone to recharge. This page is beyond beautiful with its calm sense of energy. The Summer colors, the re-affirmations, your artful writing and the fabulous black and white border at the bottom is sheer bliss. Enjoy your time dear...

I just LOVE your journal page. It is really special...I love the leaves and is that washi tape at the bottom? It is so sweet.

As an introvert myself I fully understand the need of silence. In particular, after so many months teaching and working with people. Gorgeous page
