A Year of Kindness - Challenge Week 15
I was offline all weekend. Spring has finally decided to happen in my neck of the woods! We have had four days in a row of sunshine and temperatures in the 70's. The daffodils blossomed, the forsythia and dogwood came out, and lots of trees have buds now - no leaves yet, we are still too early for that. But it means that Spring really and truly is coming! Yay! Of course, the temps are dropping to the 60's tomorrow and 50 on Wednesday and returning to rainy and grey. It is going to be hard to take after this teaser...
Which brings me to the challenge for this week - and I'm circling back to self-kindness. This week I want you to be kind to yourself by taking some time away from work and chores and your never-ending "to do" list to JUST PLAY. Whether you paint or draw, create a scrapbook page, do a Zentangle... whatever. Do something you love to do for FUN just because you can. Break out your happy colors (for me that is turquoise and lime) and make something! And if you are feeling up to it... blog it and share a link in the comments so we can all see your happy playful creations!
And my quote for the week, topped on a photo of a canvas I'm still "playing" with:
