Self-Portrait Challenge - 01.23

I have felt so overwhelmed with life well before last October that I want a little playtime to return to my brain. I want "lightness" to return to my life, not feeling like I am so burden with duties and challenges that I hardly ever smile. Fun! Play! Should be the order of the day ') Brainstorming. Onced my work drive-time was full creative projects, over-flowing with new ideas, now I only think of work and my long list of what needs to be done at home. My resolution: Lighten up, "Kim, don't take it all so seriously!" More resolutions here.

i've been thinking a great deal about this too (about lightening up) because i can be such a grump with my family. i have a quote that i like to turn to often now, it goes: "The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh because crying gives me a headache." this quote is by a little old lady who had a great sense of humour.

You bring up such an important concept: Play, lightness. We just don't take ourselves seriously enough to realize we should lighten up and get more fun into our lives.
