Painful Venting

This past week has been a frustrating one.  I seems that I have over done it by doing too much.  I was doing just fine, the new medication was working, at least helping me to function better than I was.  However, I discovered that doing too much nullifies the effects of the medication!  I am so like that!  Once I start feeling better I see all the things around the house that are not cleaned up or I schedule a bunch of things in one week and then I crash and burn! 
This page was actually quite easy to achieve.  I drew a face, colored it in with copic markers, cut it in half.  I found a beautiful rich green piece of scrapbook paper for the background.  I used SMASHBOX tape for the dotted border at the top of the page.  I used a ligher piece of scrap paper for in between the sides of the face.  I also used the Smashbox date stamper at the top ~ it is a very creative way to track the date of each piece. 

I was trying to get to this page all week and everthing else was getting in the way.  I have now learned (hopefully) to not do too much in my week.  "Take it easy, go slow, and keep going" ~ I think that's what my physiotherapist at the Chronic Pain Clinic told me this week.  She's a very smart woman!

Well I pray that you are all having a fabulous week, I'm off to try and visit a few of my favorite blogs.

Hugs and blessings everyone, thank you for coming by.

i hope you are feeling better and rested. i often take on way too much and then am unable to do anything. we are fortunate to have a way to express ourselves through art journaling.

I can really identify with this frustrating struggle, Kelly. We want so badly to "conquer the world" and it's so hard when our wings are "clipped". I am constantly having to pray the prayer that never fails: "Thy will be done."
