Hello from New Zealand! It has been a while since my last post and I hope you are doing well out there in the big bad world.
I returned back to work today after two gorgeous weeks off in the sunshine. Spring is definitely in full swing here and in turn, I am feeling uplifted and re-energised. My holiday was incredibly restful and peaceful – exactly what I needed to recover from rather stressful period which saw me moving house twice in six weeks!
Here is a little peek into my holiday world…
I also managed to cut-down my technology consumption which is one reason why I decided to take a break from the blog also. But now I am reconnecting with the world and of course, with YOU!
For the month of October, the theme in focus will be:
Vulnerability – letting ourselves be seen
As you know, I have recently been inspired by Brene Brown’s ideas on being vulnerable and I feel the need to explore this idea further. I have always struggled with allowing myself to be vulnerable in the face of others. My default is to hide myself away, to not be seen, and to feel a deep sense of shame about who I am. I know that I need to turn this around if I want to continue making positive changes in my life.
I need to learn to be comfortable in my own skin, to unveil the hidden depths of myself, to hold my head high despite my imperfections. I’m not sure how I will go about this exactly, but I do know that my art journal is a great place to start!
I am SUPER excited about this. I think between this course and the mixed-media textbooks I have purchased, I will have SO much learning to share with you all – yeehaa! Check it out if you want to join up too – I think you still can?!
Let’s get into it.
