Open the door to positive self-talk with this simple artistic door craft!
I’m so excited to have you come and join me today as we begin to build new habits in welcoming some extra self-love and compassion vocabulary words into our day! This project can be used in conjunction with any old habits you’d like to break, or new ones you’d like to build. It’s a way to help visualize maybe the things you want to let go of and release, those things that no longer serve you for the person that you are today, and help you imagine, welcome in, invite, focus and picture what you want more of instead. Creating this craft is not going to change your life, but using it may help get you a little step closer to one of your goals, wishes or dreams, by using positive, motivational and cheer-leading words.
1. Firstly, accepting where you’re at today, that’s key to practicing compassion. “This is what I’m comfortable with, this is how I am…) But also being open to the new and setting an intention in your mind that you want to grow or make progress in some area, working today specifically on finding more compassionate words to tell yourself.
2. Throughout the course, as you envision where you want to go (or be), you will be creating a door craft. Taking time for art is also practicing compassion, making this time for you, realizing that you’re important and worthy of this time. There are loads of other benefits to creating and making something artsy. It not only works as a gentle reminder but also a concrete picture in your mind to help motivate you to get to a desired vision or result.
3. Lastly, you will get to see how I use it and how you can start practicing using it for yourself as well. You may be surprised how this simple craft can become a wonderful and gentle tool to motivate you towards little steps to building new habits.
You don’t need any specific art skill for this course; just your playful creative, open-minded, ready to learn self.
Instead of adding more pressure or stress as you look at your planner or long list of daily tasks to get done, reminding yourself that “you must do this… you have to get that done, you should or shouldn’t do this and that…”, creating a visual for yourself can be so helpful to change your vocabulary to using positive and empowering words instead.
Words help to shape our attitude and thus our actions. We all want to feel more inspired, motivated and excited as we move forward into our daily responsibilities. This course will allow loads of space to practice some self-love and compassion for yourself, something that we could all use a little more of in this fast-paced, never-ending-duties-to-attend-to, assignments-to-finish, engagements-to-participate-in life. Those things won’t go away, they will be waiting for you right after this course, but maybe you will have found some “secret key” or “wonder word” that will help boost your spirit to feel more positive and find a renewed sense of joy as you go through your day. Last but not least, you will have treated yourself to this gift of compassion and creative art play.
