Scared....

The latest mood for Shimelle's class is *~scared~*. Doing some free writing on a Sunday morning, you never know what's going to come up! I picked this paper because to me it really represented how my mind feels when I start to get reeling from worrying about something. It's just kind-of buzzing all over the place.

I wrote about how fear stems from not having control. Not knowing what may happen in the future and getting scared and worried about things. It's hard to wrap my mind around all that's unknown and I begin to feel unsettled and scared. I have a picture of my son and some journaling about how I could waste my life worrying about him and his Autism, but why!? I allow myself to feel the ever-varying emotions about this, but to not get stuck. Instead of being scared about his future, concentrate on the present. I strive to live each moment to the fullest, then I am free of fear.

Wewh, that was pretty heavy. Now I look forward to the next two emotions of creative and relaxed. Have a great Sunday!

I'm working on my scared-page right know, and I agree some of theese pages are easyer to do than others. But each one I do leaves me feeling like I've gotten to know myselfe a litle bit better.
I really love your scared-page, both the layout and the journaling!! Thank you for sharing!

I love what you've done, I have to agree with the other comments some pages are really difficult because thet can be hard to face up to and acknowledge - seem to be stuck on my Sad page!
