March has been a bit of a heavy month. But in a way that I understand. I had to move through a lot of emotions and accept that I have patterns in my behaviour that are just not serving me. That it’s time to let go. It has been a month of growth pains and I understand more than ever the importance taking ownership of a situation.
So I’m sort of sitting in the rubble of it all, in the ashes of everything that has had to be burnt. Mercury is out of retrograde and here I am; sooty and with bruises, but I can feel new life growing underneath me, deep in the soil.
That was March. Now, April is here and it’s almost like I can hear her say Now it’s up to you to tie up your hair and deal with shit. I feel ready.
This month is divided into two parts. I have about two weeks to myself, during which my plan is to do a small project with a combination of illustration and french. I will of course keep you updated on this!
The second part of the month, Aurélien and I travel to the US for a west coat road trip. I can’t wait! We will visit San Francisco, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and many there places. I will of course make a movie about it.
As for my BuJo, I am trying a new layout for the monthly spread. I find it clear and I like it a lot. The numbers and symbols in the margin are astrological pointers (because I’m a total star child).
I have also been experimenting with different weekly spreads lately. Right now I like this one a lot. A few daily pointers and a whole page dedicated to gratitude. This week I am also trying to write down my daily plans in my BuJo, instead of having one on my computer.
Since my french course finished last week, I have freed up a lot of time for drawing. I have created my own french curriculum to study at home, but that won’t take all morning. So now I will have time to really catch up with both ideas for illustrations, update my web shop and other platforms. I will also continue to apply for jobs and other opportunities.
