Have you ever read a quote says: Scrapbooking is cheaper than a therapist? I absolutely agree with that. Making a page seems like I'm writing diary of my days, journal of my life. And the best thing is, you tell your story to others. It really sounds like a therapy, right?
And this weekend I'm making a very important page. I would like to tell you that I had trouble to love myself. A skinny-brown girl I saw in the mirror everyday is not kinda girl I expect. I have the look and shape that far from beauty definition that the whole universe agreed. Making mirror is not my favorite object.
But it was yesterday. That doesn't mean I have plastic surgery or face lifting. I'm still the same skinny-brown girl looking at the same mirror. But why must bother if I have such a perfect life? I have families, friends, and husband who loves me. I have jobs so I can earn my own money. I live in a beautiful place that most people envy. In other word: I love myself. More than I can imagine actually. It just takes time, courage, and patience to realize. It takes a journey. And my journey to find other amazing things in me is about to begin :)
Here's my page
It's my brand new paper and embellishment, from KaiserCraft These Days series. I loveeee this page. So elegant and romantic.
And here's the details:
We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy to make holes on papers. I don;t need sewing machine! It's super fun! I love this tools although I'm still learning to use it properly.
My journaling. Says: It's not easy to love myself. I used to hate the girl in the mirror. But a voice inside speaks and says: This is the real me! Then I realize that I love myself for what I am.
Hope you like it. See you on my next journey :)
