I AM Resilient


You're probably thinking Joella has gone and lost her marbles, but before you make any rash judgments I have to tell you, this was absolutely one of the most empowering things I have done in a very long time.  Kelly Rae - Instructor of Flying Lesson suggested we consider doing something really crazy such as writing or painting declarations on our bodies,  I have to admit, when I was standing in front of the mirror with the black marker inches away from my skin, I almost chickened.  Then I thought what the heck, I use to do it all the time as a child.  hehehehe I'm thinking that maybe next week I'll right something on my feet... you'll just have to wait and see!!!

Oh good for you. I've been too chicken to try this thus far. By the way -- I LOVE your shirt/blouse.

Michele said...

Stina / Sagolikt Pyssel said...

I love this photo!! :-) I would love to ty something like this. I just have to figure out what to tell my 5 year old daughter about it. I have spent the last years repeating "Do not paint/write on yourself!! Paint on the PAPER!!" Haha! ;-)

Joella said...

Stina...you are too funny! My hubby and I got a real kick out of your post;) I totally understand, I have two kids myself. They are teenagers now but you should have seen the looks on their faces when they seen what I had done. My daughter thought it was cool, my son on the other had thought I was perhaps going a wee bit crazy!!! Non the less he got a good laugh out of it ;) Ps I have to admit I was a little sad when it washed off in the shower the next day. hehehehe

I was just going to say the same thing that Stina said!! You know Michaela....she still draws all over herself. Damn! She could've written that book! lol Anyway I'm glad your enjoying Kelly's e-course she's amazing.

Too cool! I'd probably feel a tad weird about writing on myself...although I use to do it all the time when I was in school. Go figure! I recently found out about Kelly's class and am seriously considering signing up even though I'll be a little late.

I thought I might write faith on my chest... It's a great course. Loving your pretty jewellery - especially those button cuffs.
