minding my inner child

Well, here it is …..

It took me 2 nights to complete but I reconnected with my inner child and coloured – without the maiden. I had to be mindful of the monsters in my head trying to stop me.

“You forgot your good markers. You can’t do it.”
“You are not staying in the lines. You have ruined it.”
“Those colours don’t match.”
“This is stupid! why are you wasting time colouring.”

But I just let them enter my mind and then I let them go and I continued on. It was a peaceful activity. It took longer than I thought to finish the mandala. But it was a calming activity and I found when I calmed the monsters in my head, I was very focused and nothing else was going on in that moment.

I might just do another one.
