This was supposed to be my very first entry to Pixel Dust Foto Art Friday . But I missed it, timezones.. Anyway, this is what i wrote.
I was so lucky to find Foto Art Friday! It seems very interesting.
This week, we were asked to find a word for our year. I´ve never had that, but isn´t it just a great idea?
At this time of the year, many of us look back at the last year. Ours were not a especially good year. You know how it goes; first some problem occur, then another and another… The thing,that really turn my word upside down, was when I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia last november. Suddenly nothing was the same anymore. I still feel very lost. That´s why I´ve promised myself some things:
– I will try to accept who I am, even with fibromyalgia
– I will try to listen to my body. Living with chronic pain is´nt easy
– I will try to do something creative every week; a drawing, painting, mixed media, crafting, knitting, writing… Even if I write just one word a week, I´ll be glad. Even if I´m in lot of pain, I can write one word. (This are my baby-steps to accepting my illness.)
And, finally, I get to my word; flow. I am very good at self – criticism (and new to photoshop). I´ve done many collages, and not publishing them, because I´m not satisfied with the result. That´s not only criticism, it´s just plain stupid. All this should be fun! So, let´s have fun, and just go with the flow! May this year be a creative year, and, maybe, I´ll find my path. Or not. It´s not the point. Let the imagination roll, and just go with the flow!
