Finding this saying on Pinterest was what finally gave me the push to get going. I had spent sooooo long organizing, clearing and decluttering, I had lost my momentum and had forgotten why I started it in the first place.
Reading this made me realise I didn't have a goal - a Vision - for when it was all done, so I struggled to find the motivation to keep going when it seemed never ending.
The hardest part about 2017 was I lost Tigger, also known as 'Her Majesty', pictured here taking care of my fabric until I needed it. I still miss her dearly.
So after realising I had lost my way I started to think of everything I still wanted to try, to experience/learn and grow in my Creative Life. I did so many brain dumps as my mind again started to get excited. Pages and pages of scribbles and ideas.
Then I started Mind Mapping, laying down the foundations, accepting my restrictions and trying to find ways around them so that I could still do what I wanted without causing further pain.
I also wanted to make my own calendar/diary for 2018, I keep buying the yearly ones but never end up using them. So I scribbled, tweaked and finally came up with a design that I will use for the rest of the year and see how it works for me. If it doesn't then I will design another one each time until I come up with a design that works.
Below is the templates I made of the design so I would not have to measure it out each time. Will get one ready for next week and post it later.
At the moment this saying I again found on Pinterest, is possibly going to be my theme for 2018. Just take each day as it is and just keep doing that each and every day.
