So I thought I'd share some cards I made on my Staycation Retreat last year. Don't know how they'll hit me if I ever "pull" one and do the "I am One who...." exercise, but here they are with how they hit me a year after I made them and right before the New Year starts
In no particular order
I called this Anger. I was still chock full of anger over things that had happened in 2011 and it was a full year later. I chose images that showed destruction and anger and was surprised that a spunky woman showed up. Sometimes, it's GOOD to be angry! Some things do not deserve to be forgiven. So I stood amidst the destruction of...well...parts of my life, and I am One Who survives.
I thought this would be a fun one about SHOOZ! But the wistful one in the yellow scarf appears to be looking for something else. In the middle of sheer joy and fun, I am One Who is looking for Something More. And that's not always a bad thing.
This card is called Passion and I wanted to make a card showing the shadow side of that energy.
I think I succeeded.
The background of that card is a picture of a salt cave that exists here in my area and I would love to visit that sometime to see how it feels.
Maybe it would detox even better than a mikvah!
I am One who is flexible at any age, any weight, anytime. I see who I am in the Autumn of my Life
And I'm just fine the way I am
LOOK at the joy of movement all these people have!
I want that again!!!
I am One who needs to remember to CHILL OUT!!! Remember the past, but live life with the awareness and forgetfulness of a child.
Enlarge this one so that you can see all the laughter over people who make their own problems. I am One who looks for fires to walk through. How silly is THAT?
I feel like Rip Van Winkle finally waking UP!!
I don't know
I am One who may someday dance on the moon and try again.
But in the meantime, I am One who has rediscovered Joy and I don't intend to live without it again
Don't YOU forget it either!!
See you after the HiHo madness! If I have offended or hurt anyone in the past year, I am truly sorry. I will try my best to bring only joy and compassion to all I meet in the coming year.
And myself too. I'm putting down the baseball bat and won't beat myself up over past mistakes.
They are the past, and it's time to forget them.
