We often see articles or blog posts about finding your true self, or your path, or your space, or where you belong… Thing is, I don’t really think that life is about finding our self… We all are different, with a different stor, a different background, different dreams, and so on… so to me, trying to find myself following someone else’s path is a waste of time, of energy, of expectations… You will never find yourself trying to be someone else. It’s hopeless, as you are yourself already. Thing is, you don’t really know it, you don’t realize it.
To me, we don’t find ourselves (so it’s really useless to look for it!), we create ourselves. With each choice we make, each person we meet, each lesson we learn. We create who we are, who we want to be, who we need to be. We are responsible of who we are. We just need to acknoledge this responsability and the opportunity it gives us to be whoever we want. We create ourselves. So I focus on that, not on a neverending quest. One step at a time.

Pattern: puffy 8s
Here are the rules of the 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 challenge 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 :
