A JOURNALED LIFE: SELF

20 Jan 2016


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?
