The year is back on track and everything is back to it's usual order. The order of work, eat and sleep but my soul needs playtime too and the child in me needs to be nurtured every day. Creativity and play go hand in hand and without them my soul starts mourning. My art journal keeps me alive and breathing and helps me to keep the balance in my daily life.

Change your mindset, change your life. I think that is easier said than done. It is easy when things are going your way but when things get rough it becomes difficult to keep your mindset in that changed position. The best advice I have for myself is to hold on to my dreams and to try and stay positive and hopeful and to acknowledge that there will most definitely be obstacles and challenges on the way. I can only do every day all that I can do and do it as efficiently as I can. As long as I know at the end of the day that I did my best!

I can't remember where I read the following but I made a note of it and found it this morning which lead me to today's journal page. Food for thought.....
"Perceptual defense is a mechanism that protects us from those things our minds, at some level, determine we cannot handle or which we do not want to face. Also called 'Selective Amnesia'

Ansota's Art Journal: Hello 2013: The first page for the new year in my Artword 2013 sketchbook in black, white and red.
I also stitched up a little sketchbook yesterday. I felt so inspired to draw and did the first two page as an experiment of patterns in design and did a little drawing of my ceramic lizard as well!
In future I will post the sketches of both these sketchbooks on my other blog Ansota's Art Journal so if you want to see what I do visit there often or become a follower if you don't want to miss out. Thank you :)
