Pump Up Your Life with Scrapbook Pages of Certainty
If you can voice enthusiastically that scrapbooking is your passion, could you say the same thing about how you feel towards yourself?
Yes, can you tell others without turning all red in the 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 the same thing about yourself?
As scrapbookers, you might deliberately or unknowingly be consumed with the business of scrapbooking your kids' or your loved ones' 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 the 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 the chance to be in the scrapbooks. You are in truth missing out chances to validate yourself as a person. You are not giving yourself the opportunity to give voice to your thoughts and memories. You are also leaving the chance to build up scrapbook pages of certainty on the 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 the 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.
Scrapbooking comes in many formats. You can choose to focus entirely on the photos with very limited words thrown in. Or you can be an advocate for strong and meaningful journaling.
Whatever it is, when it comes to scrapbooking about you, I'll like to say that heartfelt journaling is crucial.
Because by giving substance in the form of words to your thoughts, feelings and recollections about yourself, you are in a way reaffirming your sense of being. You're telling the universe, "Hey, this is who I am!"
Occasionally, on my scrapbook pages, you'll see mainly journaling without a stitch of photo. And yet, some of these pages are among my most effective pages.
So don't be afraid to give strength to your words and let them pour forth and land themselves naturally onto your scrapbook pages.
Sometimes, certain themes might bog you down longer than others. Don't give up. The harder it is to scrapbook on a theme about yourself, the bigger will be the affirmation or breakthrough that you might experience.
Do yourself a favor.
Focus on scrapbooking all about yourself on some days. You'll be elated to uncover a growing sense of certainty of who you are, as you go about scrapbooking the scattered pieces of yourself and your memories.
"There is only one person who can write the story of your life, with all its foibles, follies, treasures and tears. That person is you." - Kathleen Adams
