Practice

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

When a good thing ends, I often feel lost. February brimmed over with purpose and perspective. I miss the daily challenge and journey. Now that our challenge is over, how are you feeling? Has life swallowed you up, like it has me?

March swept me up like a withered winter leaf in a gusty wind, carrying me right out of my routine. I sporadically write in my journal and mess around with collage and other media, but mostly I find myself rushing through the task of each day. Thankfully, I have slowed down a bit this week, and I want to get back to a rhythm with posting here.

I would like to continue to fan the flame of journal prompts and other creative links. Later this week, I plan to bring you a guest post.

Having the series in February kept me focused, so I wonder what would be beneficial and constructive here over the next month or so. What do you want from this blog? What have you enjoyed the most over the years? Let me know in the comments and I’ll consider them, as I create a plan for the next few months.

For now, I leave you with a few glimpses of goodness that brightened my path:

And the daily canvas challenge continues, with small or bold additions, depending on my mood, I guess. Today marked day 67! (Follow me on Instagram to witness the daily changes.)

In case you miss the journal prompts, here’s one to ponder:

What’s most beneficial for me, right NOW is . . .

  1. I am not sure what I would like to see you write on here. I am sorry, I have had a difficult time getting back in the groove with things.
