The Party's Over

The party's over
It's time to call it a day ...

Yup that's right this party is over. What party you ask? Well my great big pity party, my I'm not good enough party, my ... well you get the picture party. Its a known fact I've been down in the dumps, stressed out on life and I lost my desire to do anything creative when I know it was the one thing that helped me to deal with stuff. It was something I did for me!

After alot of thought and the suggestion of a friend I've decided to do a Soul Journal because it will not only help me explore my creative side it will also help me explore my true feelings and hopefully I can work things out and move forward both personally and artistically.

See that's already a start I used a word that contained art, something that might actually imply that what I'm trying to do is actually art. I've felt safe calling what I do creative up until now but part of the journey is to move forward and move beyond my own limitations.

So here I am picking myself up, dusting myself off, making myself all pretty again and ready to start anew.

I will be following Sarah Whitmire's Soul Journal prompts which actually took place earlier this year back in July.

I also recalled hearing about this on some of the yahoo groups and remembered someone had started a group just for discussing the Soul Journal so I joined that as well.

Now I have to get myself a book and gather some supplies but I am going to do this, I need to do this, I'm doing this for me and its okay to do something for me!

Thanks for the inspiration M : )

well i tell ya, I struggle with this alot myself. I finally bit the bullet and am taking Paxil-a very low dose but one i can tell makes a difference. I think life is hard, harder than ever and alot of us are feeling the gloom of the economics. It really is a struggle for many to keep their spirit up...journals are good. I have one also but I dont write in it as often as I would like. still its there.

I love you.

ps - any book at all can be turned into a soul journal ... I've actually been a bit sidetracked, but will eventually work my way back around to it. :)
