1st LifeBook assignment and where the heck does the time go!?!
So, I finally finished my first Lifebook assignment...only a few weeks late! We were to paint "ourselves" as a goddess, and list our "superpowers". It was a fun assignment...challenging though for those of us who have a hard time naming our superpowers (in other words...things about ourselves we really like). It's sad when you can think of more negatives than positives, but I think a lot of women are hard on themselves that way. Why is that? We have so much to celebrate, but seem to focus more on the things we want to change. Now that would be a good resolution for the New Year...resolve to focus on your good qualities, and quit beating yourself up!
So here's my "Super Me". I guess if you are old enough to have watched Superman you would know about the big red "S" on the chest. =D I'm pretty happy about how she turned out...took me forever though. I try to reserve time for painting after work, but somehow my nights seem to fly by. By the time I get home, check email, snoop through the Lifebook and Book of Days posts, make dinner, spend time with the family...next thing I know it's time for bed. Grrrr...I need more time in my days! I am still trying to get some Book of Days pages done...finally got my cover and one spread finished. I have to wait for some good lighting though, before I can take pictures of them and post.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
I have nothing earth-shattering to say about myself...I am just me: a mother, a wife of 18 long, oops, I mean wonderful years ; ), a mediocre cook (just ask my 16 year old son), a lover of lazy weekend days, an expert opener of stuck jars, and a dreamer of days when I don't have to get up and spend 9 hours a day at work. I LOVE chocolate, I can't live without my one cup of coffee in the morning, and I hate housework. = )
