A pop of colour

winter blues
it's dragging me down
bright colours

lifting up
creativity
stagnation

Middle of January is always difficult, winter blues guiding to lack of creativity. I hadn’t worked on any art page for so long, today I decided to add yellow and pink to a page. A pop of colour to lift my mood. I like my choice of colours: yellow and pink! Yellow means happiness and reminds me of sunshine; pink is related to self-care and love. This reminded me to buy flowers this weekend!

We are all just canvases for our scars – Jodi Picoult

Noticing how a little gesture can light up my mind. I got these beautiful tiny flowers at the grocery store today. Why not? a gift for myself, I deserve it!

It’s snowing, all grey and cold out there, now at least my living room as colour and freshness. Hoping to give a break in my mood, I don’t know if it is depression, winter blues, but I need to recharge and take care of myself.

I just love Picoult’s quote from the Spark of light! It reminds of acceptance, and I need to be reminded of it all the time.

Wishing a peaceful day/night to you!

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!
