Day 13 of the #blurtselfcareathon – Doodle

As part of my self-care, doodling has been good therapy for me. I started this after another blogger was doing it and shared her experiences as well as her doodles. Doodling gets things out of my system if needed. I have shared some doodles on my blog, but there have been some doodles I kept just for my eyes only.

Get your colourful pens out and start doodling and see what it can do for you.

Back to my artistic roots

I have been doing lots of doodles while away from blogging. Out of the ones I will share with you, I will share with you three of them. As you will see, my doodles have come on differently and I am re-discovering my artistic roots. The last time I drawn on this level, was not quite 20 years ago.

The elephant drawing challenge was a later date, but I wanted to do it earlier and share now with the other two drawings.

Childhood memories – positive ones

As you will know if you are a regular reader of my blog, my childhood was tough. Reading on posts at the beginning of this blog and ones where I shared when having counselling will reveal those tough moment and how it affected me. Naturally, I had blocked out the positive stuff too, since I left school. I just did not want to look back. But I had to in the end and my counselling revealed lots about me, as well as hopefully being able to move forward and release the unnecessary guilt I had most of my life that I should not have had.

Recently, out of the blue, I had a few childhood flashbacks, but these ones were positive ones. I started writing them down and I was getting a few more, so I decided to one day to create myself a mind-map and sit down for just 15 minutes and see if anything else came to mind that was a positive thing from my childhood.

This was what I came up with.
