I Appreciate Journaling – Day 40

Journal with pen appreciationI have always loved to write. Journaling is something that I’ve done over the years, through tween days, college, and mid-life. I appreciate the power of writing something down, of scripting scenarios as if they were already true, of jotting down a poem that rises from my heart, of daily appreciation journaling, or a burst of inspired ideas that creatively flow onto the paper or onto my blogs. While there are online journals and other electronic ways of writing, I really appreciate the simple pen and paper the best. I love collecting lots of different journals and choose the one that feels just right for my next writing endeavor.

Recently a friend of mine gave me a bunch of journals she was going to donate and I really am appreciating them. Not only are they beautiful, but the fact that they came as an unexpected gift from my friend makes them extra special! Thank you, my friend!

Appreciating Blogs -Day 11

I really appreciate blogs. It is such a cool thing to find interesting blogs and people who are writing about every topic imaginable. I like a lot of things, so it is pretty fair to say that I like a lot of blogs. But there are blogs that I really, really like: ones that are inspiring, entertaining or have great photos. I have a very small list of some of my favorite blogs to the right under BLOG LOVE. I invite you to check them out and see if there is something there you can appreciate, too. In the meantime, I invite to take my poll about what attracts you to reading/viewing blogs.
