A dream becomes a goal when action is taken toward its achievement. Bo Bennett
My Dream art journal page is colorful and bright, expressing a dream-like quality. i do believe in dreaming and imagination. I love it when dreams turn into reality through determination & hard work. Each year i write out a set of goals for myself. I include small ones and pie in the sky dreams. It's amazing how writing down my dreams spur me into action and really motivates me. This page really expresses this for me, that anything is possible. My dreams are in my hands and i can achieve whatever i set my mind to.
When i got sick, my head was full of pain. So much pain that i couldn't even create. I was searching for the calm in the middle of the storm. i yearned for a place where my mind wasn't clouded, for serenity. Thankfully the pain has started to subside and i have moments of clarity, moments of calmness. It's funny how we don't appreciate those moments until they are gone. Time to rejuvinate or rest the mind. And i found it's the simplest things that offer calmness...a walk on the beach, tea in the garden, watching the sunrise. I poured these yearnings & thoughts into this art journal page. You've seen the video on the last post. Now you know my thought process and how i really feel what i am putting into the page. It's like the bright happy colors of my life were being overshadowed by the pain. When it started to receed, i could see those wonderful colors peeking through. The calmness inspired hope and i was desperate for hope. i love that OLW really pushes me to see things in me. It always provides me with a new perspective.
