project life | week of april 14

I gave myself a (almost) week of much needed computer break this week. I still have problems with getting brain fry when I sit in front of one, even for the shortest of times, and decided to stay away completely for a couple of days. Of course I have checked up on stuff like Facebook and Pinterest on my phone, but the actual physical aspect of sitting down, opening my computer, and doing creative stuff or surfing, I left behind.

But yesterday I sat down and created my Project Life spread from last week. It took me a while; I couldn't find a good balance between the photos I had taken and the colour scheme I'm going with for April. I don't know that I love these two pages, but I got it done and that is enough for me right now.

As another spread is done, and another week documented, I cannot help but reflect on the hopes I had for my year when I started the week of my birthday in August, and how it has come to be something entirely different. I am documenting what has been a very difficult year and as much as I think that has helped me, I wonder what I will be able to take away from the experience when I have (hopefully) been able to dig myself out of this hole. I also wonder how I will look back on it when I look through the pages of this album many years down the road. Will this album give me a good feeling or will it just be a not wanted reminder of a bad time in my life? What I do hope is that I will be able to see that there were some truly magical moments even in my darkest days.
