I intend to share my weekly journal entries on this blog for several reasons. First, and most important, my entries have been a great way to demonstrate how to implement personal vision and goals with weekly journaling. Second, people often ask how I decide the design for my layout and what materials I use. A blog is a great way to share that information.
This week’s entry was inspired by a couple of things. Of course, Valentines Day influenced the decoration. I received beautiful cards in the mail with lovely stamps and washi tape to use for collaging. There was no shortage of heart shaped ephemera this week.
For journaling, I updated many of my goals. I have multiple actionable goals set for 2016. Goal updates make great writing prompts for journaling. Here are a few of mine:
1. Goal – Get outside and enjoy nature by visiting at least 1 local or state park per month. Result – I visited 2 parks this week and hiked a total of 10 miles.
2. Goal – Read 50 books this year. Result – I read 1 book this week. That’s a total of 6 so far this year.
3. Goal – Launch Paper Tams blog. Result – This blog was launched on Valentine’s Day.
