Me @ 47
some close ups ..
I haven't been scrapping so much lately. Not since my Scrapbooking Memories magazine Masters year came to an end. I've been studying a Dual Cert IV in Mental Health and Disability. We did the majority of our mental health units towards the latter half of the course and I found them pretty hard going at times, dredging up the pain of the past. Sadly, I figured out that despite everything I've been through to heal, I'm still angry, at 47. Angry and sad.
Now, with the use of mindfulness, after dams of tears and weeks of bleak days, I realise that I can live with the anger. I'm the one in control of my emotions and 'angry' is just as valid as 'happy'. Its what we choose to do with our emotions that matters most. So I guess I'm going to live with the anger, not let it define me, and move on. At least until I start the next phase of my study LOL .. a Dual Diploma in Counselling and Community Services Work. Just kidding. Not about the study. But this time I'm prepared for the triggers. So yeah, despite the warm, fuzzy feeling of this month's 123 challenge, this is what I came up with. For me, it says it all and was cathartic to get down on paper.
Anyways if you think you'd like to give the challenge a go, and there is time (its a leap year people!), check out their latest challenge HERE.
Happy scrapping peeps!!!
