Hello everyone! I am here to share a page using the January kit, Empathy. When I am creating about an emotion, I start by thinking about what the word means to me. I google the definition and use the Thesaurus for inspiration.
To make this page, I started by self-reflecting on my ability to be empathetic. I sadly realized that I am not always the most empathetic person. I sometimes keep a distance from people I don't know well or I am overly focused on other things. I happily realized that I am very empathetic with people who I have let in and those that I trust.
Thus, this page. I wish to be more open to all. I want to show the best me and letting down some walls can help me achieve that goal.
I used several elements from the kit as symbols to represent my thoughts and feelings. The Sweet and Good ticket is my way of admitting that I need to focus on allowing that side of me to shine more. The flower stands for life and growth. I like how it is blossoming from love.
I placed my journaling in one of the outlined boxes on the page. I find that placement is really important when journaling. I want it to flow with the rest of the page. I like to write with honesty. It is important to put down how you feel. I also like to write down my wishes because it makes them real.
I often incorporate my title into my story. I find that it helps the writing process flow easier. One of the biggest obstacles to journaling is getting started.
I love scrapbooking with a purpose and clear intention. The Empathy kit helped me to achieve that!
