A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul . . . (Proverbs 13:19 NIV)
We are nearing the end of our journey, this adventure called 29 Days of Seeing NEW.
I hope that your perspective has expanded. That your awareness has increased. That your longings and desires have found their way into your journal and creative practices.
Today, I’d like to encourage you to go back and browse your journal entries and any art practices that you tried. Choose one or two that revealed a NEW awareness for you.
Then take 2, 3, or 5 minutes to answer one of these prompts in light of the entry or art piece that you choose:
I notice . . .
I am surprised by . . .
I am aware of . . .
Giving yourself feedback is a great tool to discover and document your aha moments. And along the way, you may even determine action points that enrich your created self.
Here’s an example of mine, where I reflect on the above collage.
I notice that random images glued to a page really makes me happy! The collage itself becomes “the perfect escape for a meditative moment or a chat [with my created self]”
I am aware that the tree roots and octopus tentacles remind me of the beauty and complexity of life.
I am surprised by the arrangement of the lounge chairs facing each other, the perfect setting for a conversation. I am also surprised that I didn’t add any additional color, the images themselves add pops of color and pattern and texture to the collage.
