a mini journal

my dear friend, danny, had an idea for a mini journal that is folded from one sheet of paper.  it really is the cutest little booklet.  the theme is text/quotes.  this is one my little spreads for the journal. 

this particular page is especially important to me, because just recently someone felt that by me following my bliss i was being selfish and not caring about anyone else other than myself. 

i realize that life is too short to find our value in anything or anyone outside of ourselves.  if there is one thing i learned (over and over again) in my life so far it is that we can't please everyone all of the time - it is most surely an impossible feat. howener, i do know we can love and honor ourselves for who we are.  i hope you will follow your bliss.

  6. Well, I am a great believer in the fact that you can't please all of the people all of the time. As a woman and a wife/mother/carer, we spend our lives putting other people first, something which people who aren't those things can never appreciate! If you don't follow your own bliss from time to time - how can anyone expect you to follow theirs! Love your journal, funnily enough I was just going to do one of those this evening myself! P.S. Thanks for the comment on my blog. Sx
