right now | the page


A few days ago I posted a RIGHT NOW post about what was saving my life. Those things giving life rather than those things that are killing me. Sure, I could do a post ranting about what is killing me but it is about a mind change, turning away from discontentment to contentment, moving from ungratefulness to a heart of gratitude; instead of the woes, worries, and pains get down to the nuts and bolts of what's saving me. It was an exercise in happy, contentment, gratitude, joy, - all positives of life - the little things and the big things.

It's not unlike journaling your gratitudes or writing out one thousand gifts.

After that post, I knew I wanted to make a scrapbook page of that blog post. I wanted a record of the RIGHT NOW. And too, because this is part of my story. I will be the first to admit I can get into a funk and if I do not actively engage a heart of gratitude, what is saving my life, writing down gifts, blessings back to God, speak positive truth - I can spiral out of control until all I can see is what's killing me. Great lessons, regularly, re-shape our mind and hearts and thus, our actions.

Digitally: This is a 12 x 12 page. I began with an Ali Edwards' template but I ended up having to modify it somewhat; but the general layout design has been unaltered. Then I used One Little Bird Designs papers and embellishments plus from the  Ali Edwards' ME Story kit I used the RIGHT NOW stamp. I originally thought I would use more photos of 'what is saving my life' but, then thought it was more the words versus the photos telling the story.
