I began this year right by treating myself to a journal I have had my eye on for about a year now. Made by RogueJournals.com, this book is totally decadent! The leather is butter soft and the inner pages are handmade paper with a deckled edge. I had my initials stamped into the front cover. I further personalized it by adding a stamped image that is one of my favorites. I also added a key - keys being one of my personal icons.
My preparation to see my one resolution come to fruition. I attached a pre-made card and library pocket in order to record my weight loss each month. My goal date, October 9th - this date coincides with a journaling prompt from last year entitled 1 Year, 1 Month & 1 Day. My word of choice for the year is also recorded here to help me recall. My word is RELEASE.
My final New Year addition to this new journal is a quote found in a book I finished a day or so ago. The book was entitled, "The Thirteenth Tale". A good read by Diane Setterfield. This particular quote was my favorite passage from the entire book! It struck a nerve in me and made me think - hard!
With my new journal all set up and ready for my pen, (and whatever else I might toss in), I feel very prepared to face the new year. Good thing I suppose since the new year made it here about 2.5 hours ago. Ha!
Good Night All and The Happiest of New Years to Y'all!!!
