I love challenges…truly. They give my mind a starting point…

The new prompt is up at TAIF and I was able to do some reflecting with this challenge…

I took a walk…took a photo…and read my journal…I found an entry talking about how far I feel I have come since the days I spent with post partum depression. It was a horrible time for me…I had it with both kids…most days I felt like I was in a cloud…most days I felt so alone. I didn’t recognize myself.

I don’t feel that way anymore…I feel like I can see myself better than ever. So I am thankful for challenges…scrapbooking and life related…How bout you?

  7. The photo is beautiful! Love it. Thanks for the inspiration … I need to jump in on TAIF. This is amazing.

  8. I too am inspired by your words of wisdom, it’s refreshing…and even though you went through that—I know from personal experience—it is something we would not have known. The things we feel when our hearts grow for another child…I had it with my two boys and when I was pregnant with the twins I thought for sure I was going to get it DOUBLE!~ thing is, I didn’t. I guess I was too busy with them…but somemone somewhere knew that I was going to be able to handle it all. I do. I don’t know how I do it somedays…but, that’s the beautiful thing about it.
    I will try this new challenge on TAIF as I LOVE it so far. But it will be my first…yikes!

  9. man oh man I love this.
    I’ve gone through some dark days…
    and creating seems to make it so much better-
    when I can put it down into words, and get through it so much better.
    Yep. Challenges make us grow creatively and spiritually too.
