The count down is on, 6 days until my 40th birthday. I'm laying awake thinking of how to put into words how I am feeling. So many thoughts running through my head. Wondering how this year went by SO FAST. I set out on this journey to make a change in ME, to become the ME I always wanted to BE. I have discovered what I always knew that I will always BE a work in progress. There are things I want to change and I'm sure there will always be. But I can say that I have been able to check some things off of my BE List. It's time to look back into the pages of by artsyBE journal and re-evaluate.
Last night was unbelievable! My wonderful husband and my sister gave me an amazing SURPRISE 40th Birthday Party. They really got me, both in surprising me and understanding me. My sister made a collage with pictures of me and with the words, "daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend," and had everyone sign it. She gave me a toast to which she spoke of the many roles I play (many times feeling unappreciated and taken for granted). Last night I felt loved and appreciated by all of my family and friends. They all wrote such kind words on the collage. My sister also gave me a necklace made by Lisa Leonard, (a creative jewelry artist that I follow online). It was hand stamped with the words, "daughter, sister, wife, mother." I love it and will cherish it forever! I now know how well my friends know me, they made all of my favorite foods and they gave me gifts that are so me. My friend Marybeth made me a hand stamped bracelet with the names of my 3 treasures on it, it's beautiful and so creative.
ArtsyBE is the act of doing something and being artsy. ArtsyBE is a state of mind, body and soul. Being artsy is findng that place, that thing that frees you and gives you peace. ArtsyBE gives you a peace that you enjoy separate from the everyday life. I started this blog to MOTIVATE MYSELF, if anyone finds this helpful then it was worth it.
