Week 3 – Wreck this journal

 1-sudden movements

No harm done. This book is not destroyed easily. Jamie talked about attachment in her week 3 introduction. You might say that I feel attached to this journal. I have had it for a year coming July and it has been laying around without being used since late November. Maybe I hoped for new inspiration to get back into it. As I work my way through this journal I find it interesting to read the thoughts I had last year.

Last July Stacy Julian at Big Picture Scrapbooking asked us to make a list of 8 principles of Fun. I worked hard with coming up with this list and I used my journal to write down my thoughts around this process. My final list came out like this:

  • work on what is important to me
  • find what makes me “tick”
  • be creative
  • don`t follow the rules
  • take all the challenges
  • take control and don`t rush the time
  • do something
  • turn up the volume – and BE YOU

This has turned into a page of importance to me. It will be a challenge to see if I can destroy this page in the week coming up. Happy wrecking!

    I’m quite impressed with how many people have managed to take theirs in the shower – I haven’t been that brave yet. (Though my daughters are trying to teach me to loosen up a little more.)
