Today’s offering is about self empowerment – a double page spread with buttons and material because I figured it was time to try that out in this journal, and a mining of old empowerment posts on this blog: “Yes, Permission to Do What You Really Want to Do” and another one I can’t find right now.

Annoying.

If I’m not on target aske me: did something change that changed the plan? Were the dates not realistic? Did you miss a step in the plan? Did you jump ahead and not need tha step?
I colored in the two sketches from day 5 I hadn’t already already. Outline drawings and crayons – nothing better. Easy, fast and very satisfying.
Now I’m going to go play because this day I am persisting in NOT adulting. I’ve adulted way too much in the past 3 months. Time for a break.
