Holiday Journals

Doorway Doodle  11/6/13
It's the beginning of November and I already feel an ache in the pit of my stomach.  Stores are full of holiday decorations to tempt you into spending your money and time.  They're reminding you of all the things you'll need to do. Gift and grocery lists are becoming longer each day.  Time seems to speed up as the holidays approach.  And, if you're like me, tensions mount.

In my last post 101 Creative Ideas I gave you a list of things you could do to motivate, inspire and entertain you.  Anything you do on this list can help relieve some of the holiday stress you may be feeling.  It's a great resource for positive things to do with your time.

I've decided to create a new journal for the holidays.  I'm going to strive to work in it everyday.  Some days I'll write and some days I'll draw or paint.  Everyday I make an entry I'll try to focus on the important things in my abundant life.  And I'll let the troublesome and negative things be pushed aside.  I'll use this journal as my refuge when I feel overwhelmed with all the tasks that need to get done.  I'll also use this journal to reflect on the good things that are happening now or in the future.

I encourage you to find, or make, a journal and gather your supplies.

We'll get through this together!


  1. Well journals always look to be a great idea! And here's hoping you have a great holiday season!


  2. I have a box of old journals in my office... I often wonder what my kids will think should they thumb through them when I am gone. Chances are they will assume I am off my rocker! =P

  3. hoping to get one now. i was relying on excels but want to try some new form of journay this holiday season.

  4. I'm working on a blog post about creating a journal. Should be out next week.
