Welcome to Week 15. This week is all about BALANCE. With the Easter long weekend here, I thought this message was very appropriate.
I don’t know about you, but I can not sit and do nothing. I can’t even watch T.V without art journaling at the same time. I always have a million things that need to be done. Whether it be the hundreds of ideas in my head that I want to bring to fruition, or the household chores that are calling out to be done or my art business and customers that need my attention or the gazillion things you do for your family, especially as a Mum.
However, everyone needs to stop, relax and unwind every once in a while. It’s essential. You’re no good to anyone if all you do is go, go, go, all of the time. Burnout usually follows if you don’t allow yourself the time to relax, unwind, reset, chill out, de-stress, clear your mind, refocus, etc.
So take the time this long Easter weekend to step back from the hustle and bustle of your daily life and rest up. The world will not come crashing down if you stop for a breath. If you can’t do it for yourself, do it for the people around you.
I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing, but very creative Easter long weekend.
For an extra challenge this week. Why not write a list of all the things that you do or that need to be done and prioritise them, so that when life goes back to normal, after this long weekend, you are in a better, more organised state to begin again from.
Try using this list as collaged pieces in your background or write them straight onto your journal page.
For those of you who would like daily or alternative prompts, I have prepared a Daily Journal Prompt List. You can find it in the Facebook Group under Files.
