My weekly journaling continues with the same format I've been using for almost two years. Daily highlights linked to my intentions are recorded on the left. And some sort of creative interpretation is entered on the right. This can be a collage, sketch, poem, or simply handwriting practice. Here's an updated page flip of my most recent entries.
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.
