Enjoy the moment 150 150 Consie Sindet

I started back to school this week. This hopefully will be my last semester as a college student as I finish my BA in Fine Art. I get nervous before any new adventure and so decided to do a little henna on myself to take my mind off of the upcoming classes. I started doing henna last year at the urging of my friend, Kristine. She had been working with it for a few years and had loved the designing, the actual applying and the fact that it was not permanent and could be done again at any time. Once I started trying it out, I found the whole process to be very relaxing. Just going with the flow of the lines and swirls, letting the patterns build on each other.

henna_stainDo you have a visual cue that you use to remind yourself to slow down and enjoy the moment?
