Be Wise – Lil’ Butterfly

I created this art journal layout as a reminder that all that goes into my mind, effects my heart. Being careful of what we do with that we let in is so important, and plays a role on our health, our well-being, and on those around us. This page resonated with me, and I’ve also shared some thoughts below.

  • People are people. We are all humans and there’s a certain dignity and respect we should show one another as mere humans.
  • There is a bigger perspective. So often we see things just from our experiences and upbringing. There is a bigger view than just ours. Yes, there’s a bigger and different view. That doesn’t mean I don’t follow my moral compass of right and wrong, but there may be something I could learn by looking at it differently.
  • Healthy Thinking. What we put in (information, news, social media, etc.) can take a toll on our body, as well as our mind. I ask myself, am I being healthy with my thoughts?

So the page I created reminds me to be wise with my words, reactions, actions, and time. The page is a reminder to be mindful, loving, conscious, kind, understanding, patient, and more. I fall short and need reminders! My desire however is that I want to have a positive sweet impact on those around me.

My art journaling pages serve as a reminder, a conversation of my raw and real feelings, and sometimes a prayer. How about you? Are you journaling these days?

Here is what I used:

Daughter, Wife, Mother, Friend, artist, vintage loving, law enforcement officer, Southern Californian, God and country loving girl who loves to meet like minded creative people, share life with new and old friends. Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better. ~André Gide
