No "Friday Field Trip" today cause......stamping feet.....I don't wanna!
I've been deep in the art journal and also painting much in the studio this week.
Most of my art journaling has been prompting by reading a wonderful book
by Brene Brown called "The Gifts of Imperfection".
Gawd she's good.
(Why haven't I read that one sooner!?!)
I'm on to her newest book, "Daring Greatly", next.
And though I don't have the "courage" it takes to reveal the journaling
I do on my arted up pages, I've shared a few notes to self.
Wonder when I ever started equating strength with harshness?
Was it during my "corporate life"?
It sounds so masculine - and it's just SO NOT TRUE.
I think it's safe to drop that tactic now!
I dig the idea of "soft strength" - which I fully expect to show up on the next art journal page.....
As Brene Brown says,
"Do not shrink. Do not puff up. Just stand on your sacred ground."
Ah . . . the new mantra.
