this year, i'm going to promise myself something every single week. and it's not about resolutions, or making yourself 'a better you'. it's just about feelings, things i think are important in my life right now, and what promise i can make myself with that 'word'.
you can see all the words & a little bit explanation in this post.
YOU can play along! why wouldn't you? it's not too heavy, one word every week! you can do that! anddddd there are NO FREAKING RULES. i don't like rules. never ever. so if you wanna play along, just join & use the hashtag #52promisestome. you can use your art journal, notebook, sketchbook, planner, agenda, bullet journal, scrapbook, project life book WHATEVER feels good to you. however you wanna create. hack, maybe you can even crochet something :D
the first word is PLAY. and that's a damn important word to me. journaling is in Dutch, but for my sweet international friends, of course i've translated it below.
why not PLAY along and make 2018 your most creative year ever. how about that?! you can join on Instagram and make sure you tag me, or #52promisestome so i can hunt you down, find you to show some love <3.
PLAY. play more. do more things that makes my heart happy. i already take enough time to be creative. but still there are plenty of moments during the day i got sucked into social media. that i'm watching, comparing and looking how everybody else is doing 'it', and somehow that always looks BETTER. so PLAY MORE it is. but also play more with the kids. go out. adventure. walk. play games. no ipad/iphones/laptops but attention for eachother. make sure they see the value of being with eachother without 'screens'. and PLAY would also be more applicable if i have a 'dark' day. when i feel down. try to get to loosen up more. play more. see the joy more. less serious. less worry. and just let it be.
of course my own art journal :)
