Still Alive

How are you all doing?

I'm awesome considering today's the end of the world. Lol!

I'm still alive. Are you?

Ok, I'm kidding. I never expected today to be apocalyptic. But I had fun doing this spread in my art journal. I got some Jessica Sporn's stencils to play with that we're having a proper blog hop next year but I just couldn't resist taking them out for a test drive. :)

Next four prompts are from Reverb#12: 
17. Think of one person whose life you made a difference to in 2012. What did you gain from this? How will you continue to make a difference in 2013?
I was lucky to receive several e-mails this year from people telling me I somehow touched their lives. I never expected it but I guess when you're doing something with all your heart not really expecting anything in return but just pouring your soul out, that's when the magic happens. The trick is not thinking about what's in it for you. Just pour your positive energy out and it will come to you back ten fold.

18. What colour best represents the year you had in 2012? And why? What colour would you like to invite into your life in 2013?
Purple. You know how people ask you, what's your favorite color? I used to say red or pink. This year it was purple. I think it's because it is connected to spirituality. For some reason I'm drawn to it. Next year I'm thinking green and yellow. That's what popped into my head. Lots of sunshine and nature.

19. How did you nourish your beautiful body in 2012? What self-care practices will you take with you into 2013?
Well, crap! You have me now. :) No, I did start with exercise this year, even doing the crazy Jillian Michaels exercise DVD and lots of elliptic cardio. And I tried to keep up with the meditations. But . . . You know . . . I get bored very easily and it's just so much easier to sleep in and check the e-mail and eat than to exercise. But I'm really trying with meditations. And I'm taking that into 2013 with me.

20. What was lost in 2012? What do you intend to find in 2013?
Passion. You heard me say this before. I lost my passion somewhere in the second half of this year. I intend to find it again in 2013. Hopefully with Flora's new class and some challenges I'm doing. Cause that's always fun to push my boundaries. And hopefully some other stuff will fall into place as well. Cause we all know it's all connected anyway.

Linking to Paint Party Friday.

  7. Love the stencil and yes, it would seem we're all still here. Mind you, I did wonder whose 11.10am it was that would signal the end of the world seeing as we're all on different time zones!! Happy Holidays.

  14. Nice to see someone else struggles occasionally, and overcomes.

    Faith makes all things possible,
    Hope makes all things work,
    Love makes all things beautiful.
    May you have all three for this Christmas!

  19. I love your purple page. Isn't purple the color of passion? I think passion ebbs and flows, so don't give up on it; it will return!
