In the Inside-Out spirit of looking at emotions in different ways, here are the first two challenges this month on the theme of PASSION. I'ts not all about roses and candy...there are some important lessons to be learned looking at what makes our hearts pound...
February Challenge #1, First Love/No Direct Photo
Now listen, all you married ladies...this challenge is a bit different...made for you to explore some of your past, potentially NOT about your current spouse.
Remember the first time you REALLY fell in love? How your heart would practically pound out of your chest when you saw the object of your affection?
Please create a LO about that feeling. What was it like, what did you learn from that first love, and how has that experience influenced your life today.
If you don't feel that you've been in love that way (yet), what do you imagine it to be like in your perfect world?
Design twist: DON'T use the person's picture...find a creative way to tell the story w/o it to keep the focus on YOUR experience. After all, this is SFTIO...all about YOU.
February Challenge #2, Drive/Road
You've got to follow your passion. You've got to figure out what it is you love--who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dreams. Oprah Winfrey
Passion is the genesis of genius. Anthony Robbins
Drive: In a perfect world, we’d all get to create a life that beautifully represents our passions. Do you do a job, or do you spend your days, in a way that truly speaks to your passions? If not, why? How did you get to do what you do? Did you follow your inner voice, or did someone else tell you what you should be? What pushes you to create a career, or life, that you love? When did you start to hear that inner voice? If you don’t hear it, how do you feel about people who have that drive and pursue it?
For our next challenge, tell us about whether what you do all day (career, homemaker...) reflects your passions. If not, what's stopping you from achieving that?
For the design twist, please use a road image for your path toward your best life.
Every month we help you Explore Your Inner World like no one else can. And kit, or no kit, you can play along with your evocative challenges, learn about yourself and create on a deeper level. Although you really do want the kit...:)
