This scrapbooking idea allows you to indulge in your worrying thoughts, for enough minutes to get them down on a page.
I had this idea in mind for quite sometime but only got around to doing it now. For one, it’s not the most uplifting topic but it’s one that’s on many women’s minds. You see, one of the favorite activities of women is… thinking. So much so that sometimes we think too much and most of these thoughts are… worries.
Instead of wanting you to bury yourself further under your pile of worries, I believe this layout is for you to get your worries down on paper and then cast them aside. Don’t let worries eat you up or fester in your mind. Get them out in the open, in a scrapbook page, and then “drop them”.
You see, for years, I used to be a worrywart. Most of my daily thoughts were consumed by endless worries. And I wasn’t experiencing much joy in those days. By learning not to focus on my worries and consciously choosing better thoughts, my worries were slowly replaced by more inspiring thoughts. Somehow in the process, as my focus shifted to more useful purposes, my worries shrink in size.
In doing this layout, I racked my brains a little to release the worrying thoughts I have within me. At first, it’s a few and then soon a whole bunch of them got written on my page. I now let this layout “carries” my worries for me. :-)
Years later, when you look back at this layout, your then worries might have completely dissolved and you would marvel at how you’ve managed to overcome them. Or you would discover some of the worries which seemed huge back then weren’t that critical on hindsight.
Enjoy this scrapbooking idea!
