Autumn and winter are times for gratitude for me, so I have been thinking of the things I am grateful this year, one of them is abundance.
For some people abundance is about buying expensive cars, or having fancy trips around the world, or wearing very fancy and expensive clothes, or buying the new Iphone as soon as it appears in the market.
For me, abundance has taken many forms, today, as I write this post, it has the form of a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and several ink cartridges that I just bought a few days ago and that I am enjoying a lot.
Why a simple pocket brush is an abundance marker for you?-You might ask.
Well, because there was a time in my life when I did not have enough money to cover my monthly expenses and to buy a cool pocket brush, not even color markers.
At that time, I only could buy drawing supplies once a month, in the form of a couple of pencils, an eraser, some white paper and a couple of cheap black pens, like the ones people use to take notes everyday.
Having color markers was a nice dream, but not accesible at that moment.
So, today being able to buy a Pocket Brush and several ink cartridges, with ease, is a hell of an achievement for me, it may sound silly, or very a low marker, but to me, it is a precious one, it feels awesome and I am very, very grateful for it.
Because it is not just the pocket brush, is all the things that allowed that purchase: mindset, money, work, taste, priorities…is a new version of me.
By the way, of you are into journaling, and having an illustrated journal, feel free to copy the composition I used on the page at the beginning of this post, remember, good creators steal, like Austin Kleon says.
