So my DIY post is a little behind this week (yet to take the photos), so I thought I would post another little DIY project I am working on, it’s an ongoing one.
It is very easy to get caught up in the little things in life and forget to stop and look at all the blessings, lessons learned, challenges etc.
So, as a challenge to myself I decided to spend the last few minutes of my waking hours reflecting on the day passed, wither it was something I felt, even a prayer (yip there are a few of them) or a dream. I have this giant pin board across the main wall of my room (not my choice) and have been struggling to fill it. This combined with my handy kikki k desk calender (best $6 I have ever spent) provided a unique opportunity…
So each night before bed, I tear off today’s calender page and write a little something (there is a cute note section at the bottom which also tears off, two opportunities for reflection whoop) and then pin it up. I have found I leave the day feeling really good and thankful for the little things that have had an impact.
The hope is to put some nice paper up behind the reflections and switch to blue tack over pins (as my pin stock is depleting at a rapid rate), but here is a snap shot of the progress (and yes I did the painting, and yes this photo was taken at the wee hours of the morning so apologies for the lack of natural lighting and clarity)
