View Full Version : Year-long resolutions - June 4th

06-01-2012, 03:38 AM
I swear, each month goes by faster than the previous one. June?? How's that possible??

I hope you are ready to keep on working on those resolutions, OLW, to-do (or not-to-do) lists, challenges and other projects for the year. We are many to take some kind of resolutions (I'll use this one word for practical purposes, to avoid the long list above, but don't feel limited by it!)... and many to forget about them come February! :raise hand:

I invite you to join me in my year-long journey to a better me. I hope we will support each other, laugh together, celebrate our victories and help us overcome the bumps on this road. Each month, I will suggest a theme or journaling prompt (linked to the Monthly Collab's theme) to help you spark your creativity, but don't feel like you have to follow it exactly to participate. The only mandatory requirement is to create a LO about your resolutions (again, I use this word loosely).

It can be a check-up LO: how you've been doing, what were your successes and your struggles, what you will change (or not) and why. It can be a visual reminder for the coming month (or week), especially if you focus on a different area each month. It can follow the theme / journaling prompt I will suggest. Whatever you pick, just make sure to journal and to focus on your resolutions/goals/OLW/etc.

This month, the collab is called S (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Roots-and-Wings.html)ummer Morning (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Summer-Morning.html) and the suggested prompt for this challenge, inspired by the "savor the moment" theme of the collab, is "enjoy the journey": even though your goal is important, it's also important to enjoy the process to get there. First because it often takes time to reach this goal, way too much time to spend not enjoying it. Second because, even if you never reach it, as long you enjoy the progresses, no matter how small they are, or even just having made the decision to take this journey, you already won.

Get inspired by these ideas or create your own resolution-centered LO, and share your page!

taking deep breath.... here's one for your challenge from me. My OLW for 2012 is "me". I know it sounds self-centered but it was time I started doing some things for myself - like losing some weight, getting back to doing the things I like and fulfilling my dream of becoming a RN. So, my layout is about my journey back to school in the fall.

I used Dawn's Simply Put Volume 3 - template pack (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Simply-Put-Volume-3-Template-Pack.html) and Life's Journey (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Life-s-Journey.html) by Forever Joy Designs (a collab. with Stolen Moments)

This is terrific LuAnn, both the look and the story of this page are fabulous!! :heart:

Technically it fits the theme (I titled it "Enjoy Life's Journey) but it's more of an advice to your child LO as opposed to a progress LO. Hope that is okay. :) Using ForeverJoy's Life's Journey collab.

Beautiful LO, tropt!! And I'm so happy the prompt inspired you this fabulous page even though it's not resolutions-related!
