I hope you had a good week !
Life is a journey. As travelers, we write our own book of discoveries. Each big step we make is a new chapter. When we decide to move on, we just turn the page and write on a new blanck page. Anything can happen, and we make sure to tell ourselves about it. Thing is, sometimes, we just can’t move on. In order to do so, we need to let go of what was written on the last chapter. It may takes some time, but it doesn’t really matter. We take the time needed. Nobody will be mad at you because you want to re read a chapter you loved. But we also have to realise that when we feel stuck in a chapter of our life that we don’t really like, we just have to stop re-reading it, turn the page, grab our favorite pen and start writing a new chapter. It doesn’t mean that we forget about the last chapter. It is written, it exists. But we can add a new chapter, something new, yet something that belongs to the same story.
I tend to re read the former chapters when I need to understand where I am standing. Usually, I do it just before a big jump to a new chapter, to remember where I am coming from. And sometimes, I just turn the page and start writing. Anyway I tend to look at my life as a saga. I sometimes feel that I lived several lifes in one. At least, I can’t say that I had a boring one. Now that I tend to more peace, I am thinking about just taking a new book, and puting the last one on a shelve, where I can see it, where I know it will be if needed. Starting a new book for a whole new volume of my life. After volume 1 ‘the young years’, volume 2 ‘the fearless warrior’, volume 3 ‘the motherly one’, here is volume 4… I still don’t have a title because I really don’t know what it will deal with…. but I really hope it will bring a happy end. For a change….
So here is this week challenge:
- Quote: » You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last. »
- Pattern: bugle
Here are the rules of this challenge:
- Each thursday, I’ll give you a quote and a pattern to play with. You can use both, you can use only one of them, it’s up to you.
- You have till the next wednesday to make your card and share it with us in the facebook group (just ask to be added, and I will open the doors wide open to you )
- The goal of this chalenge it just to offer yourself a time to have fun with pens and cards, to ponder on words, to enjoy a ME time. We tend to forget about ourselves so easily! And sharing is such a beautiful thing to experiment in our life!
Here is my card:
