I've struggled with Self Esteem issues and Body Image Issues most of my life. As I get older I am more accepting of myself for the most part on most days. I think some of that came along with dropping dairy from my diet, too. I know that sounds like a superficial item on the list of reasons but it's just something I have noticed the last few months. I think because I feel better overall it has made me feel better about myself. Not in a vanity type way but more accepting of who I am, I guess. I guess it's just hard to explain.
Over the past week or so I have been adding more and more layers to a few Art Journaling Pages and last night completed this one. I had the layers down and even the two digi stamps but last night I decided to go with the "JUST BE" theme and text. It seemed to work here and as I added more and more of the "BE..." elements it 'felt right'.
I saw this little 'meme' on Instagram the other day and LOVED that is was Pirates of the Caribbean and Johnny Depp and Captain Jack Sparrow and it all seemed to come together.
I realize we all have our faults but I also think we are all 'perfect' in our own way! Yes...that's contradicting but pretty deep if you give it some thought!
Yesterday, I forgot to mention, while at the Festival over the weekend we ended up meeting some 'new friends'. That's one of my favorite parts about being a vendor at these things! Meeting people but also fellow vendors that you 'click with'. My mom, dad, sister, and I always come with 'goodies' and invite other vendors over to 'take a break' with us. Ever since my sister had some store-bought 'Avocado' Hummus a few months ago she's been wanting to try some others. I finally decided to make it last week. It made a HUGE batch and I brought it with me to the event and shared with about a dozen or more people! EVERYONE absolutely LOVED it! Even people who are NOT focused on their diet or food intake or 'health' foods commented. One person even said he didn't like hummus - as a rule of thumb - but LOVED my Avocado Hummus! This totally made my day! Woot! Here is what I used...
1 1/2 C Chickpeas
3 T Lemon Juice
2 T Tahini
2 Cloves Garlic
Water (or Grapeseed Oil), Pepper to taste/consistency
