We established Hopeful World with the hope that together we would learn the magic of the “we” by healing the places in our “I” where we resist the kind of humility and gentleness required for a new world.How can you resist such a beautiful goal?
For the last two weeks I have been taking part in (Heart) My Art run by Hopeful World. The idea was to spend a few minutes a day being a little creative and totally focus on ourselves.
We were given two sheets to print out, our Play Pages. These had guide lines of for each days part of the project.
Our first task was to find a photo of ourselves. Any picture that grabbed us. We had to list the qualities we felt from the photo, imagining it was someone else.

My little book of ME!
I have thoroughly enjoyed having this little project to look forward to at the end of every day. It has lifted my spirits and made me feel quite crafty again.
I have realised how much I love colouring, cutting and sticking so I may make another book of my own.
