I happened upon a site called the Brave Girls Club a few weeks ago. It’s Melody Ross from the Chatterbox scrapbook company’s new project. There are a bunch on neat people looking to make their lives happier, more fulfilling, and the type of life they want to live. I hadn’t heard of it before I saw the site. While I was looking around the site I realized an online class called Soul Restoration 2 was beginning the next day. I figured it was a force of some sort that brought me there so I might as well join in.
So far it’s week 3 and I’ve made my journal, filled out my fun sheets, and kinda stalled. Making myself admit to things I’m doing wrong or not doing that might help me is a hard thing for me to do. I tend to say “I can do that” to most things. Onward and Upward! But this is about making me make a plan to get what I want and make it happen. I’m used to going with what I’ve been dealt. I’m a fighter for the right thing. Everyone has obstacles in their life. Who am I to make a big deal out of mine. I have a great life.
I think I will get a valuable lesson from this journey if I make myself stick with it. I’m used to things being big mountains or big changes. Moving lots, lots of major illness in my immediate family, business ups and downs. Self employment! That says enough doesn’t it! lol I always go with what has happened to us and we build from there. This time I want to have a plan, a dream, a reason to get up in the morning to fight for. I am kinda afraid to do that. I have to commit to something and I might fail. It’s easier to fail without a plan! This blog is already a step for me. Doing things I love and committing to adding things and making things to put on here.
Any way I made a cover for my journal that we are adding our information to. I love how it turned out.
The flower is hydrangea petals I die cut and layered over a stamped outline of a flower. I like the colors, the sense of age to the paper. I want to feel like the Queen of my life! I will say there must be some sort of Karma. I was looking for something to decorate my page tabs with and I saw these adorable paper clips in Joann’s, I think, any way they were perfect the same colors as my journal, the words on them and …..they were designed by ………MELODY ROSS! How did she know I was going to look for those? lol I think it was a sign that they were there to keep me working on my journal.
I hope everyone finds “Happy”
Have a great weekend!
I’m on my way! lol
