Good morning! A new week ahead, lots of possibilities waiting for us. Hope you had a great weekend. I can say my weekend was an artsy one!

On Friday afternoon, after grocery shopping, I stopped by a craft store. It was a grey day and I needed something to brighten it.

I got these gorgeous washi tapes, I can’t resist them! I’ve many but I always need more!

Saturday evening I joined an Instagram Art Party – MarGlueBookParty, where we have prompts and make art pages using collage.

Prompt 1: Springtime

Can’t wait to smell the flowers in my garden

Prompt 2: Yellow butterfly

butterflies mean transformation and it can be reached by practicing yoga

Prompt 3: Let’s dance!

listening is what matters, no other sense is necessary when dancing

I love to see how I used yellow in all my pages. Yellow means happiness, and it was the colour stealing my attention that evening. A good sign for sure!

Sunday morning I woke up thinking about lightness, the feeling of it!

journaling about lightness

I thought the feeling of lightness should be as the scent of oranges on a hot summer day. I got out my sweet orange essential oil and smelled it! Yes, it’s lightness and freshness all together.

Take a flying leap at the sun.

Don’t let your thoughts weigh you down

A little heart goes a long way when we release boundaries and are ready to create a new path for our dreams.

Noticing how the criticism and boundaries that pull me down are inside my mind. Learning how to be free from them. It isn’t a easy process but I’ll get there.

How are you doing my friends? I feel the tension in the air, everybody is busy and in hurry trying to finish up things and get others ready for the holidays.

Slow down, take a deep breath and smile. Reading some poetry before starting the day helps too. Writing is the best, only a few pages to organize your ideas and bring your focus back to what is important and what this season is about.

Have a lovely and peaceful day!

Noticing how calm I feel after writing. I don’t understand why I resist in doing it. Today I wrote about causes and consequences. Each little thing we do in this world has a consequence.  It isn’t easy to accept it, but learning to accept and learn to let go is a must if we want to live in harmony with ourselves.

“The wound is the place where light enters you” Rumi

Have a lovely Sunday!

writing and writing, trying to lay down words on the pages of my journal to understand what is going on in my mind. somedays this process is easy, others not so much. i feel disconnected from my true-self, there are so many things going on, not only in my small world but in the big world, things that directly or indirectly affect us all.

this time of the year is wonderful, but it’s a little scary too. the winter is coming, months and months of grey skies and snow, lots of time indoors. if we are not careful the winter blues can take over.

i want to focus on what matters right now. i don’t want to fit and please others, i want to be true to myself, to be strong and let go of what/who doesn’t bring me joy, so i’m ready for the long winter.

happy sunday to you!

notebook, pen, magazines clips, glue… doing what i want and i need to keep my mind busy. grateful to be able to play with this stuff without hurry, just enjoying and letting go.

have a lovely day and don’t forget to make time for yourself!

quiet in my life ::  yoga, meditation, and journaling early in the morning. this is my ‘me time’. love to wake up early and to know that for an hour or so i’ll not be disturbed. some days i get lazy and stay in the bed but most of the time i get up and start my day being positive.

my friend Delicia is creating personal meditations, you can check out here. she has lovely meditations in there and i asked her to create a personal meditation for me. she knows me well and i trusted that she’d pinpoint all my needs in the meditation.

i received my meditation last week, love it! the meditation is grounding, but at the same time makes me feel light and free. i’m practicing it every day since them and i feel that unpleasant thoughts are getting weaker and i’ve more room for creativity in my mind. isn’t it great!

my ‘me time’ makes me a better person to others, but the most important makes me a better person to myself.

hugs,

E.
