Still at it

I'm still working away with the goal of making a mini page every day in May. Some are good, some not so good but I am keeping at it.

Bittersweet

I've been going through some of my daughter's old toys so I can give them to my niece and nephew. It makes me happy to give the toys to someone who will enjoy them but at the same time it makes me sad. Getting rid of her toys is just another sign she is growing up. It made me think of how we'd play together when she was younger and all the happiness she got from her toys.
She has changed and grown so much this past year. I feel like a mama bird watching her baby learn to fly. And what mama hasn't shed a few tears of both pride and sadness when their baby starts to fly?
I think my biggest fear is that she won't need me anymore. I know she still does,and will, just in a different way but it's hard. As she grows and changes I'm needing to change too.

Peace

Secrets

This journal page was hard to do but it had to be done.

This is my 100th blog post. I never imagined I would get this far with a blog. It took me years to start but I am enjoying it. It's my safe way to be part of the world and not feel too overwhelmed. Thank you to everyone who reads or has ever read my blog. It's about me but I'm glad you are along for the ride :)

A little bit

Even though I haven't been journaling in my journals I still love to glue stuff. Every morning in May I have been making a little collage in a small journal I have. The pages are about 3"x5" so it doesn't take much to do one. It has been a fun exercise and I hope I can keep it up all month. At least I'll have something to show you :)
Give it a try. See what you can do in 10-15 minutes. Maybe an index card would be good to use. Just use all those little bits and pieces you have around and don't overthink it.

finishing up

I haven't had much to say lately nor have I been doing much of anything. Just kinda aimless of late. I did finish the journal I was working in.
Here it is along with the final page.


I have been doing alot of writing but not in a journal. I've been scribbling madly on plain old notebook paper. Words have been tumbling out so fast that I haven't wanted to "mess up" my journal pages. I know this is silly and it doesn't really matter but sometimes I get stuck in this rut. I have also been debating with myself how much to share. I have come to the conclusion that the only way to be free of many of my demons is to be honest and let them see the light of day. I will no longer be ashamed of my secrets. Secrets and shame keep people sick and I am ready for change.
