2012 Moty: Section 1 – Day 1

Started coloring Section 1 of the 2012 Mandala of the Year today. I decided to color every section with markers this year. Last year I used color pencils.

Following Susan Jeffers, PhD’s “Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway” book for inspiration, I adopted the chapter 1 theme “I can handle it” as my mantra while coloring.

It amazes me how much I tense up when I’m coloring…even though I know coloring is supposed to be a relaxing meditative process. Fear of messing it up seems to always linger in the background as I do my colorings…ergo the tension. I must have repeated “I can handle it” at least 50 times while doing today’s coloring.

Happy Coloring!
