Thankful - November Gallery Contest

I love this month's theme, and knew I had to participate! I'm grateful for many, many things but I finally narrowed it down to one aspect of my life.

The journaling reads:

"A year and a half ago, my job was making me sick -- literally. I suffered from anxiety, panic attacks, and a slew of other issues due to an extremely stressful work environment. With my husband's support, I was able to quit that toxic job and become a full time writer. I quickly discovered being an artist isn't easy, no matter how much I may love what I do. In fact, it's a daily struggle. And yet I'm immensely grateful for this life I get to live, this job I get to do, and a husband who supports me no matter what. It just doesn't get any better than this, does it?"

Everything I used comes from Jen Reed's Reflections of the Heart Collection Biggie.

    Love the journaling because you found your way and you have your husband's support. Also you realize that your choices are still making a big commitment, but you want to do it, great for you! Your paper and clusters is very pretty!
    I love the colors in your layout! Your journaling is beautiful. Congratulations on your new job!
    Beautiful blending. Lovely choices, I love how you used Jenn's collection. I'm so glad for you that you've been able to find a job that is is so much better for you!
