You Can Do Anything, But Not Everything Art Journal Page

  I’ve been wanting to make today’s page ever since I found the quote in the Tim Holtz idea-ology small talk pack.  

 Well. I knew I needed to make a journal page with that quote as a reminder to myself that I shouldn’t be so hard on myself. 

Here’s the thing about me though. I hate admitting I’m human and I hate admitting I have limitations. I hate asking for help and and I really hate looking weak. And I really, really hate admitting I was wrong when I took on to much and my husband warned me I was probably overestimating my abilities because I’m only human just like everyone else. I hate it. I had to admit it not to long ago though. I tried to do it all and realized I couldn’t. Not without losing my sanity at least. And you know what? At the end of the day, my pride is not worth my sanity. So I let one thing go and, although I’m still running like mad trying to catch up, at least it’s not as much as I was trying to do before.  And I really am going to try to remember, it’s ok to be human. And I can do anything, but not everything all at once.
