Plan to forget...embrace life 😉

I had a awesome weekend Saturday was a crop at a friends house and I attended the tattoo convention in Baltimore ....stay tuned for Travel Notebook spread on that amazing day 😀 you would think after an amazing weekend I would be motivated for a awesome week...nope!!!

On Monday I didn't want to do anything and I didn't even have the motivation to get my planner or even try to remember what I had to do. So I took care of my children and just let the day unfold.


 At first I felt guilty I knew there had to be something important I was forgetting...the world needs me I must get up and go...but I didn't I let the spirit guide me and took it easy...so my message is yes I am a  planner and without my Planner I'm lost.... so I thought ....but we also have an inner guidance and somedays its okay to put the planner down embrace life and let your inner spirit guide you.

Plan to be happy 😀

Inspirational Journaling

Listen to your  Heart ❤....


Live with intention listen to your heart and be true to you; make time and create space to do more of what you love; letting go of the rest (ideas, relationships, expectations, clutter)- anything that isn't actively contributing to your happiness and well being.

Set your intention to journal more... Write this in your journal...

***I will journal more, I know that when I write in my journal I feel better- I feel calm, soothed and in control of my life- so I will make it a daily habit.***

Tips...

Disconnect...from social media when you feel the need to share your life share it with your journal
...instead of reaching for your phone reach for your journal.


Brain dump... When you are having a bad day tell your journal all about it...Dear Journal today sucked .....or Dear Journal today was a awesome day...don't worry your secrets are safe with journal.

Plagiarism Allowed...well sort of don't turn your journal into a autobiography...can't think of anything you want to write about copy it from a book, bible, magazine...etc.

Make it a habit....be patient, start small, don't compare yourself to others....
* Start with a small journal.
* Write a simple quote or a sentence about you day daily.

Weekly Journaling Prompts






I have always loved journaling as a kid I keep a Hello Kitty Diary. I can remember pouring my heart out to my Diary...Dear Diary I hate my life....Dear Diary I kissed a boy ....Dear Diary my parents suck....I told my Diary my deepest darkest secrets...lol.  Now as an adult I have become a journaling addict. My friends ask Chela how do you
have so much to write...what do you write. Well the truth is I have a awful memory and I journal because I want to capture the little things in life we tend to forget. So my journaling can be about my day...something I read...prayer.... a list of to do's...a list of don't do.....why me....gratitude...quotes...and so much more.

So why journal?

You journal to let the voice be heard. You journal to hear yourself.

You journal to tune out the noise of your busy life.

You journal to turn your jumbled mess of thoughts into something that you can actually understand and take action on.

You journal to detox the crud that has built up in your mind.

You journal to find your way out of a problem. You journal to find your way into a solution.

You journal to change your mind state. And to make space for your dreams.

You journal to create before you create, to paint a picture of your dreams and then go out and claim them.

You journal, quite simply, because that is where you find the real you.

How to Journal and Make Sh*t Happen

Bible Journaling Fun

I am truly enjoying my Journaling Bible. It really encourages me to get into the word and be creative all in one. I try to keep my process simple and cute. I love using illustrated faith stickers and emphemra. Illustrated faith products help keep my journal page's creative and cute. I also use artloft  water colors from Michaels for my back ground.
