If you can voice enthusiastically that scrapbooking is your passion, could you say same thing about how you feel towards yourself?
Yes, can you tell others without turning all red in face that you are passionate about yourself and about who you are?
Are you thinking what a Weird remark to make to others? Could anyone ever be passionate about themselves?
But why not?
Do you really want to wait a lifetime for that someone to tell you that they're passionate about you, while you can't say same thing about yourself?
As scrapbookers, you might deliberately or unknowingly be consumed with business of scrapbooking your kidsí or your loved onesí lives. And all these time neglecting to do pages on yourself.
Has too much time lapsed since you last sat down and scrapbooked about you?
Do you find yourself brushing task away with a mere, "Nay, what's there to scrapbook about me? It's more interesting to scrapbook about others."
Do you really think so? Perhaps just think again.
Through scrapbooking about yourself, you aren't depriving others of chance to be in scrapbooks. You are in truth missing out chances to validate yourself as a person. You are not giving yourself opportunity to give voice to your thoughts and memories. You are also leaving chance to build up scrapbook pages of certainty on table.
Did I hear you asking curiously, "What's scrapbook pages of certainty?"
Well, for those of us who do spend time to scrapbook about ourselves, we'll feel a blissful sense of comfort. We become clearer on we've learned on hindsight. We start to own clarifying thoughts on our goals ahead. And we experience a growing certainty of who we are as a person, woman, worker, mother, nurturer, homemaker and other hats that we don on.
You can do same for yourself too.
I urge you to not procrastinate on this important aspect of taking care of yourself. Instead, put others aside once in a while, and feed your inner desire for self-awareness and self-growth with scrapbook pages of certainty.
