I was going through this past year and could not help but think of all the wonderful opportunities getting involved with scrapbooking allowed me in '08. Then my mind started racing with images of LO's I had made during the year...so much has evolved. So many changes. Some gradual and some no so much.
I remembered this page.
I made this for round three of the fashionista search early february of last year. I had yet to venture into spray paint. Still a little rough around the edges learning my new sewing machine. And generally wanting to experiment more in art to fill the creative void away from mumbo jumbo called work. This page is so personal to me. So meaningful in a way that really was my purpose for not only 08 but life.
fOcus is so hard sometimes. I'm always busy doing something...thinking of stuff to do...lists, write it down, cross it off, and start anew the next day. Me Me Me... blah. I easily forget to remember my life lessons. Stop. fOcus. live with less clutter in my head and heart. Not just my home. Having been to Cambodia twice I learned that smiling is still possible through poverty. Genuinely caring and loving everyone is truly the most beautiful thing to behold & cherish. Pride will always hurt you and those you love. Fear is common. Get uncomfortable. be Brave.
My journaling came from Jars of Clay: Worlds Apart. Such a beautiful song. My life goal is to live this truth: Love never fails. Always always love. So here is to a beautiful new beginning. A fresh new year to start over. Love mr. handsome. Love my family. Love my friends. Love my enemies. & love myself.
when all else fails, we still have love.
happy new year:: feliz ano nuevo
