Do consider leaving those alluring computer fonts aside for a while, and write in your own handwriting. It may not be perfect but it's much more personal. Your handwriting is undeniably a part of you.
4) Passing on Your Beliefs and Values
Worried that your values and beliefs will be lost forever to your future generations? Scrapbooking about them is a great way to ensue that they'll get passed on from one generation to next. "Great-grandma Emily is a strong believer of filial piety. It's her strongest trait..."
Your scrapbook albums will likely become treasured family keepsakes, where your words will echo and impact on your future generations’ lives.
5) Pulling You Out from a Crossroad
There's probably times in your life when you feel uncertain and lost about yourself. It's like your identity has gone missing. I've been at such a crossroad before too.
At such disheartening moments, try scrapbooking on themes like "What Makes Me So Unique", "The Many Hats That I wear" and "Top 10 Things that I'm Most Proud". These themes will once again call attention to your own uniqueness. Such meaningful pages will reinforce value in you as an individual.
If you're daring enough, try "10 Things I Like About You". This is where you'll have to get a couple of your closest kin and friends to each make a list of things they like about you. You'll have to cast away your shyness and get those lists from people you care about.
Because someday when you feel like you're in dumps, pull out these precious little lists, read over them and call to your mind that you are wanted and loved by others.
So instead of dwelling on your failures and imperfections, these powerful lists will push you forward and make you look at positive traits of yourself.
6) Pump You Up with Pride
When you're done with some scrapbooks on yourself, flip through them occasionally.
You'll find yourself looking at you with a renewed sense of respect and pride. Be it as a mother, nurturer, wife, partner, daughter, sister, colleague or dreamer, your scrapbook albums will showcase you in different roles. It'll tell others that you aren't merely just a mom.
The pages will remind you that you have meaningful contributions to make in various roles.
Are you beginning to see therapeutic wonders of scrapbooking about yourself? Doesn't it reaffirm goodness within you and unleash power of you being a diamond?
Aren't above reasons compelling enough to cajole you into scrapbooking about yourself?
Each delayed moment is a moment lost forever. So take positive steps now to uncover diamond in you to share with others.
Happy scrapping about yourself!
