Invitation to make a Visionboard

2023-01-23T09:56:05+02:00January 23rd, 2023|

What’s a Vision Board?  A Vision Board (also sometimes called a Treasure Map, an Image Bank, a Mood Board or  Creativity Collage) is a poster board on which you paste or collage images that you’ve torn out from various magazines. The images can be very specific – like a new dream house. Or they can be images that evoke a feeling – like a picture of a woman meditating that makes you feel deeply peaceful. It’s simple. The truth behind this technique is this: When you surround yourself with images [...]

Boundaries

2022-12-31T13:09:55+02:00December 28th, 2022|

I am participating in @kasiaavery CareDecember Art Journaling project. This is day 9 prompt: BOUNDARIES This is a topic that has come up a lot recently. For myself and for many of my friends. Boundaries are changing as we change and grow. They are not always easy to put up. They are often difficult to uphold. They are also very hard to move as we become more ourselves. They are essential to our sanity, our growth and our true essence. Boundaries protect our time, our values, our sanity, our int [...]

Impermanence

2022-12-31T13:07:57+02:00December 25th, 2022|

I am participating in @kasiaavery CareDecember Art Journaling project. This is day 8 prompt: IMPERMANENCE I've had quite a few reminders this year of how impermanent things are. So when I think about that word it also comes with ACCEPTANCE. Accepting that things change. Accepting what is. Accepting that it's not always as I'd like it to be... The way the collage turned out, the word is almost a sentence. I'm permanence. Because in all the change around me, I am still here. Changed but here. Rem [...]

Love letter

2022-12-31T12:57:34+02:00December 21st, 2022|

I am participating in @kasiaavery CareDecember Art Journaling project. This is day 7 prompt: LOVE LETTER I used to write a lot of letters as a teenager. I had pet pals in Germany but also in the US, South Korea and New Zealand. It felt so exotic and eye opening to receive letters from these girls telling me about their lives that were so different yet also felt so much the same. We would also send each other little gifts from our respective countries and I loved to get introduced to such novelt [...]

Cleansing

2022-12-31T12:49:16+02:00December 18th, 2022|

I am participating in @kasiaavery CareDecember Art Journaling project. This is day 5 prompt: CLEANSING In 2009 I took a coach and part of the program was knowing where your energy went. And the first exercise was going through your house, room by room, with a list and questions that helped you clear out things. The second step was looking at the energy in your different areas of life and answer a set of questions. These two exercises were the most important realization for me of the entire prog [...]

Grow and heal

2022-12-31T12:46:11+02:00December 17th, 2022|

I am participating in @kasiaavery CareDecember Art Journaling project. This is day 4 prompt: GROW AND HEAL I have always had a tendency to be somewhere else than where I was. Because elsewhere always seemed better or more exciting. I moved out of my parents’ house when I was 17. I moved to Paris when I was 19. I left one party to go to the next. I researched trips endlessly to make sure I had it all covered and wasn’t missing anything. Nowadays I am slowly returning to growing where I was plant [...]

The blank space

2022-12-31T12:43:04+02:00December 16th, 2022|

I am participating in @kasiaavery CareDecember Art Journaling project. This is day 3 prompt: THE BLANK SPACE It’s so important to leave a blank space when you create art. It seems to fill the rest of the canvas. It’s also so important to have blank spaces in life. Time in your day and calendar to just be with yourself and what you love to do. Space for surprises, serendipity and things to enter spontaneously. Space for curiosity and wonder and amazement at what wasn’t planned. Space for just be [...]

Safe harbour

2022-12-31T12:37:42+02:00December 13th, 2022|

I am participating in @kasiaavery CareDecember Art Journaling project. This is day 2 prompt: THE HARBOUR On my 2022 visionboard there is a quote that says: I write to understand life. I have written for as long as I can remember. Journals, diary, poems, newsletters, letters, stories, books, workshop content, coaching programs. I ha e often combined it with art or collage. It's an out pour of what's in me. It's an intake of the world. Writi g gives it meaning, sense and purpose. I read a lot too [...]

Intentions

2022-12-31T12:34:11+02:00December 12th, 2022|

I am participating in @kasiaavery CareDecember Art Journaling project. I’m a bit behind on the days. But I don’t care 😂 This is day 1 prompt: INTENTIONS This past year my recurring intention is for slowing things down, creating space in my days, having pockets of time with nothing planned and doing things at my own pace. I made this collage of a woman in a flower dress, reading or getting inspiration, thinking about what to write or create in her journal and not letting hectic life get the bett [...]

How to talk about ‘uncomfortable’ subjects

2022-04-30T19:25:39+02:00July 16th, 2021|

We've all been there. We want or need to broach a 'delicate' or 'uncomfortable' subject with someone: with our partner about sex with a good friend about returning money to us with our boss about a raise ... and we chicken out, we postpone, procrastinate, pretend everything is fine and we don't need to talk about it, let the subject go around and around in our heads until it hurts. We're afraid of messing it up, of 'bringing' the subject in the wrong way, of getting emotional, of looking stupid [...]
