I started a bullet journal in January. My goal was to create a “pretty place” for my daily “to do” list. Following a multitude of bullet journalists on IG, I quickly decided I would NOT track every aspect of my life! Whew. I do not want to invest THAT kind of energy. I do, however, want to track/showcase my daily lettering, a daily reflection and gratitudes. As a result, I have a daily log of my art typography, daily do’s and gratitudes. #gratifying

No!

Women, in general, have been conditioned to do everything and take care of everyone. Unfortunately, after a time it depletes all good energy. Self-care includes learning the art of saying, “No.” 
I use to be a pleaser, doing everything for everyone as my source of validation. It impacted my physical and emotional health. Putting my mental health first, I began saying, “No.” I quickly discovered who truly cared for me and who cared about how I performed for them. Bam. 

Art of Life.

Art journaling is so zen for me. People who view my completed pages marvel at the tiny details and vivid colors. Those very details are what allow me to tamp down my monkey brain and just be in that very focused creative moment.
