High Points This Week

#lists #list #mixed #media #smashbooking #scrapbooking #life

Whenever I think of high points of the week, I remember the "big bang" moments, don't you? But, if it were not for my habit of journaling my grateful thoughts I wouldn't remember the extraordinarily ordinary everyday moments that mean more and make my life MY life and end up being the moments that really count.

Okay, now on to catching up on sharing my December 2018 #30lists mini book. You can see more photos and learn more than you ever want to know about me here.

List 8 | Songs on Repeat
Our oldest girl sang "Mary Did You Know" at church and our youngest girl captured it on video. Whenever I listen, I get happy tears. I cannot believe that she can sing so beautifully. Of course, her DaDa has an awesome voice so she definitely gets her talent from him. Well, both my girls do, our youngest is quite the singer herself.

List 9 | Things I Am Grateful For
Okay, so journaling my grateful thoughts is not new for me, it's a practice I'm quite used to. Some days it's as simple as finally getting to the grocery store to buy more of my favorite yogurt for breakfast and other days I need more room, and a bigger journal, to put my heart into it

List 10 | High Points This Week
The coin envelope already came with the NOTED stamped on the flap, but I added the sticker for my list prompt and then used one of these die cuts to hold the date on my journaling card.

Projects Lined Notes | part of a 3 sheet set

Personally, I haven't made resolutions in years. But, I do like to set goals and writing them down is a way for me to "remind" myself of my good intentions. If you're the same, print out a sheet or two to tuck inside your planner or journal as personal reminder to yourself make 2018 a very good year.

A few of my goals for 2018 are:
  • read more | I read mostly for pleasure and 2017 was a great year for that. I read more books than I have in a very long time. As much as I love holding a real book in my hands and turning the pages, reading on my Kindle Paperwhite {make a Kindle cover for under $1.00 with my easy peasy tutorial} has allowed me to read and finish more books than ever. And, without those pesky overdue fines from the library because I didn't make it back into town in time! 
  • spend more time outdoors | Being a small business owner responsible for all aspects of making it run smoothly, I tend to spend more time in my craft studio that overlooks the creek than I do outdoors splashing and splashing IN the creek. I must change that, life is too short to work all day without a little play time.
  • date night | I am so often reminded that a little "we" time goes a long way in making our family time all that much better. Too often we think of the family unit and forget that we need time alone together to make it all work.
  • think first, then speak | Yes! I too often speak my mind when I should just allow what is on my mind to remain unspoken.

I have more to add, but they're for my eyes only, wink, wink.
