Journal Fodder 365 - prompts #47 & #48
The journey through Journal Fodder 365 has finally come to an end after almost a year. I did the last two prompts this week because it's always fun to finish a journal :)
This spread is inheritances and legacies - what do you bring from the past and what will you leave behind?
I thought about the inheritances as seeds that were planted in my life and the legacies as the fruit that comes from them. I think my main inheritances are a desire to keep learning and sharing skills. The ability to read and follow instructions (not as obvious as it seems!) means I have been able to teach myself several skills by reading books. I love to learn from others, but sometimes there aren't the opportunities to do that, so you have to make do with what others have written.
As for the fruit - I hope to leave people with the knowledge that they are creative, even if they haven't found their niche just yet. I hope to be generous in sharing skills and encouraging the creativity of others, just as I have benefitted greatly from those who have been generous to me. And I hope to leave an abundance of beautiful books and jewellery.
The final prompt was to look back at the journey through the book.
This journey has been a long one. Some of the prompts I have found easy, some of them I just didn't seem to be on the same wavelength as the authors. But I have interpreted the prompts as they appealed to me.
Working through the book has helped me to nail down my hopes and dreams; to see which fears are holding me back; to be grateful for all that has gone before, because it has made me into the woman I am, even if it wasn't fun at the time.
Thank you for joining me on the journey!
I will be sharing this page with Mix It Monthly, which has the subject of maps this month.
