Happy Days in My Gratitude Journal

When I have the chance to capture happiness I do it! And when you share it and document it, the happiness lives on forever! It's like you can relive the moment time and time again. I guess you could say that I often use my Gratitude Journal as a diary as well, often telling the story of my day. Because, I have learned over my many years, I will not remember the details.

THIS WEEK IN MY GRATITUDE JOURNAL

The Flagship Gratitude Journal
We have a family tradition that Gordon takes each of the girls out for a "Date Day with DaDa" the day before their birthday party. It's their time to hang out, eat lunch wherever they choose and just enjoy the day together.

And this year, Victoria has been enjoying the time she has with her DaDa on their twice-weekly basketball practice rides. It's a 30-minute ride each way and usually involves a stop at Arby's on the way home because she's famished, even though she already ate dinner at home!

I love that she wants G to take her, but will settle for me if he's traveling. It's a happy memory I don't want to forget.

As women, we have to adjust our minds and give ourself grace. We cannot be all things to all people all the time. And we should be okay with that.

On the back of my Happy page, I added in a speech bubble journaling card and attached it with a strip of washi tape. Journaling cards are a great to carry around in your purse or tote to journal on in a few spare moments and then add into your journal at a later time. And they really don't add too much bulk.

And if you've ever wondered what that "something new" you could be grateful for when you've been journaling for years, let your page be your prompt. Here, the page is stamped with a heart inside a speech bubble, so I went with the them of love.

But not what I love, rather what my Sweetie loves. You could choose what your dog loves, what you love about Thursday's, you get the idea. It was a fun departure and gave me a different perspective on thankfulness.

Journaling Cards on a Ring
I've been working on getting a flip-thru of this fun ring of pretty paper and journal cards completed.I'm just not really all that fond of me and videos. I know I've promised, so I WILL do it soon. 

And you might just see a DIY Kit with a collection of pretty papers and a binder ring to get you started in the shop very soon. How fun will that be?

I continue to be amazed at the accomplished young women we are raising. They really don't let anything get them down, always striving to do more, be more, achieve more. If only I could have had some of their spunk back in the day.

And this little nugget of gratefulness comes from the combination of the LOVE you journal card and the arrows paper below it. I might use the paper below to journal even more or may just leave it as is. Either way, I'm happy with that I documented part of our story.

In My Filofax Planner
I keep a few gratitude journaling pages in my Filofax planner in the chance that I have a few moments in between this and that. I hate wasting time, and instead of being on my phone scrolling mindlessly, I'll put my time to good use and jot down an idea or two.
