I really liked these images I found in an old Romantic Homes magazine and thought they’d make an interesting summer journal layout. I painted the background with acrylic paint and added pieces of a paper doily, punched butterflies, glitter, doodles and whatever else came to mind.
It’s a great way to have to some and relax. Journaling is a wonderful stress reliever because there are no rules and anything goes. You simply create what you feel.
Hope this inspires you in some way today. Thanks for stopping by!!!
I thought I’d share a good quote today by Tony Robbins in one of my paintings:
“The only impossible journey is the one you never begin.”
There are so many things we’d like to go for, but we think it’s impossible. The mere fact that we never try makes it impossible. So go for your dream and make it a reality. The worst thing that can happen is that you fail, but at least you gave it your best shot! Who knows, you may find great things along the way✨
What have you been wanting to try but haven’t had the courage to do yet?
Hope this inspires you in some way. Thanks for stopping by!!!
This is a tough one today because it’s something that the majority of us don’t want to admit to. Responsibility is defined as the state of being morally, legally or mentally accountable. Many go through life playing the blame game. They continually blame others for where they are, but this isn’t accurate.
Let’s say that some one did something bad to you like causing you to lose your job. At that point, you have a choice to make. Do you dwell in anger and resentment over the circumstances that led to this event or do you take responsibility for your actions, thoughts, attitude and choices that brought you down this path?
Do you fill your heart with negative energy and hatred towards that person and everyone involved or do you choose to make the best of it knowing that things happen for a reason. Maybe there was a lesson to be learned or something bigger and better is waiting for you down the road. Dwelling in negativity will hurt you the most and keep you from moving forward and growing as you were divinely designed to do.
Take responsibility for your actions, thoughts, attitude and the choices you’ve made that have brought you to where you presently are. If you’re not happy with your current path then change direction. Choose to live your life and make decisions from a place of love and happiness. It’s certainly challenging to do but if it was so easy, everyone would be doing it. Make the effort and work at creating the life you have always dreamt of. It will be well worth it!
No matter how tough a day may be, tomorrow there’s always a new day filled with love and positive energy. But it’s up to you.
