Adversity. Sometimes I really tend to think that I only grow in adversity. And I have to say that I would love to just live my life peacefully… But most of the time, I just face it, learn from it, and grow. I guess this is my path. I accept it. No fear, no anger. But a strong strong will, and some time taken to just ponder about the lessons learned.
And a promise made to myself: when I feel bad or hurt, I just try to craft, draw, write anything that makes me feel good. To turn negative feeling into positive vibes. Because it makes me feel good, it makes me focus on something else, it allows me to ponder on what hurts me while doing something I love… And usually I share it.
Of course, sometimes I just feel the need to lock myself away from anything that can hurt me… but it never lasts long. Because to me, it seems taht without adversity there is no growth… It’s the way it is… the way I learn. And I am ok with it.
Anyway, here is your challenge for this week:
Citation: « Like wildflowers , you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would. »
Motif: auraknot-bunzo flower
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 : you can also see my firt attempt at drawing a gem!
