Soul Escape

We are in Week 3 of our Brave Girls Soul Restoration workshop. If you haven't checked out the Brave Girls website, you definitely need to do so! I'm loving this workshop and also getting "daily truths" in my inbox each morning.

One of the things we are doing is taking journal prompts from each week's curriculum and using them in our art journals. I have never art journaled until now so this is a bonus for me!  Here are a few of my journal pages (with the raw journaling blocked out----sorry!). I'm really enjoying this and we're learning new techniques every week.

I thought the hand "holding" the definition of NEST was kind of symbollic about wanting to hold on to my home, the place I rest.

This is talks about me feeling like I'm holding the world up with everything I do for everyone else. It's almost like getting lost in a strange city with the feeling of being overwhelmed & running around in circles.

I think this was the most cathartic entry---I was saying "goodbye" to a dear friend. I've had too much drama and maintenance with this particular friend and it was time to let them go. I will still be cordial (like when they called unexpectedly the other day) but I will not give them too much information or let them into my soul to do more damage.

I feel like this woman when I have too much coming at me--then I feel guilty & resentful about those I take care of. Is it odd to feel both of those at the same time? I love this initial tape that my friend Marlene picked up for me. How fun is that?????

So far I have learned quite a bit about myself with Soul Restoration---each week opens up my soul a little more. I'm seeing how I really feel about things and how I can handle them in the future. Thank you Brave Girls!!! I can't wait to see what Melody & Kathy come up with in week four!

  1. Wow! your art journal pages are fabulous! I love that you are doing this with your SR journal. I am also glad that the class is really helping you figure things out. Looking forward to seeing more of your pages.
