Card Of The Week – Better Get Better

Better Get Better Card - Create With Joy

Card Of The Week – Better Get Better

It seems like forever since I’ve had a chance to sit down, share a WOYWW (What’s On My Workdesk Wednesday) moment, and give you a peek at what’s been going on creatively behind the scenes at Create With Joy and I want you to know that I’ve missed our time together tremendously!

Since the beginning of the year, however, I’ve been busy turning my life upside down as I’ve focused on incorporating new ways to improve and transform my lifestyle one healthy habit at a time. It hasn’t always easy and it remains an ongoing journey, but today’s creation reminds me in both a beautiful and light-hearted way that I need to stay committed to the concept that I’d “Better Get Better” if I’d like my future to unfold the way I envision it!

Now that the things I’ve been working towards during the first half of the year are coming a little more naturally to me than they once did, I’m focused on bringing a little more balance back into my life – which means turning my attention back to my creative pursuits once more!

Better Get Better w Flowers - Reverse

I recognize that Summer is often the time that we set aside our goals to focus on fun, family and vacation – but since we are already in the second half of the year, what ideas keep bubbling up inside of you that perhaps need your attention before the year comes to a close?

I wish you a week filled with joy and inspiration! If you’d like to connect and share your creativity with more kindred spirits, be sure to join us at one or more of our weekly parties – and be sure to check out the Creative Challenges below!!
