A JOURNALED LIFE: SELF


Last Saturday at the supermarket my mother in law gifted me two red lipsticks I wanted to have. Nothing important for many women but for me it was a big deal, I haven't put on a bold lipstick in years.

This year I want to be confident, comfortable and feminine in my role.

So I sit, staring at my vision board that hang aloft the empty cupboard space. Once we get shelves and drawers I will have to find a new place to fix it. A vision board full of words and phrases that encourages me to do better. Suddenly it feels impossible to choose just one word from the many words that I was drawn to as I was working on the board.

Last year, after I completed my vision board, the word that jumped at me was TRUST. I decided to trust in my instincts, because it was what God was telling me to do. I'm happy for how things turned out in 2015.

Like last year I did another vision board, and the one word that keeps attracting my attention is SELF. Google.ca defines self as
a person's essential being that distinguishes them from others, especially considered as the object of introspection or reflexive action.
"A person's essential being..." I feel as if I've lost my-SELF and I'm trying to find it back but sometimes are harder than others. And this year I want to claim my essential being back to me. I'm happy to do the vision board because though he word I wanted to choose was CONFIDENT, the universe directed me to choose SELF. May 2016 help me reclaim, rejuvenate and re-balance my essential being: my-self.

I'm taking the challenge hosted by Regina Collins at a journaled life to sit down as much as possible to reflect on our personal life.
This week's prompt is: If you were to choose ONE word to focus on this year, what would it be and why?

  2. Love the lipstick. It's so important to find ourselves and stay in touch with who we are underneath all the many hats we wear. Wishing you the best of luck on your journey to reclaim, rejuvenate and re-balance!

  3. I love this photograph of you <3. You look really good in red lipstick.

    I've never done the one word project. I think any concept of self has long since left the building however. I work & I mom. That's it. Guess I should think a little more on it ;)
