thank you for dropping in again to see inside of yesterday's journal.
today I want to share with you a bit of the inside, and why this journal is such an important daily part of my life.
when the journal is first open i have placed my digital graphic of my one little word front and center.
i need to see this daily as a reminder of my word. as a reminder of my focus. as a reminder of what to do. it's a guiding force and so adding it to this book that i open up everyday is very important to me. i sized the printable to 5 x 7 and and adhered it to the first manila folder index page.
these sentiment stickers are perfect word stickers. i don't know about you, but i need a lot of reminders. i am very visually driven, so to have a little reminder asking me 'if not now, when', then i am bound to be challenged and inspired.
you can see here how I have taken a regular manila folder, and trimmed it to size. i use these to divide the months. if you remember from yesterday's post over at HeidiSwapp that these journals hold three months at a time. i divide them up to further help me keep track of my writings. i dressed up this page just a little by adding (as i always do) fatmuslims photo a day graphic. i always print this out and add it to my journal to refer to daily.
i also used the month cutting file from HeidiSwapp's Digital Shop for mark the month.
then a few of her ClearStamps were used to just add a few details.
here is something else that is always included inside my daily journal: Ann Voskamp's Joy Dare. i have been listing my gifts daily for well over a year now. last year i wrote my 1000th gift. these prompts are perfect to promote thought and help me be mindful of the daily gifts of my life. part of my morning routine is to check the suggestions listed here and write out several thoughts that i am thankful for and consider as gifts.
