Scrapbooking Therapy

I'm posting most of my digital scrapbook designs over on my ReboScraps blog, but this one kind of fits here, too. I feel like I'm in this limbo right now... looking for a job, not really sure what's next or how soon "next" is. I find  myself desperately wanting to go back to work, and sort of dreading it at the same time. Yesterday, my overwhelming mood was, "Ugh!" Out of that came this scrapbook page, a little motivational speech to myself, accompanied by one of the best photos I took last summer. The photo is of "Cloud Gate" a giant sculpture in Chicago's Millennium Park, affectionately referred to as "the bean." I'd been wanting to see it for some time, and it didn't disappoint.

Here's where the therapy comes in. This is what is written on the page:
I love this photo. I knew when I clicked, it was going to be cool. The sky was perfect blue, and the puffy white clouds were amazing. The surreal reflection of nothing but sky on Cloud Gate spoke to me of infinite opportunity, dreams of a future full of possibility. Time has passed, and today this image reminds me it’s all still true, but I can’t let go of my dream just because it hasn’t yet come true.

I think I need more therapy. Well, that's going to be my excuse to scrapbook some more this weekend, anyway.
