24 Things

One of the biggest lessons I have learned this past year is how important gratitude is. I learned how important it is to stop and take note of all the things that you can be grateful for, in good times, but especially in bad times. I feel like when we choose to stop and focus on all of our blessings, with a grateful heart, it can change our whole perspective and outlook on our situation, especially when everything around us may seem dark and ...

Love Anyway

Happy Valentines Day! Last year, around this time, I dedicated the month of love to writing and talking about self-love. This year, while looking for some February motivation, I came across a pretty cool verse that made me feel inspired - “Love them anyway” (Luke 23:34) I wanted to share this verse as a source of inspiration this month because I believe the message behind it is something worth remembering - choose to love all things, no ...

Journaling allows us the opportunity to motivate, support and encourage ourselves, where we are able ...

I have already begun

Just as I prefer to choose a word or a source of inspiration to focus my attention on for the year ahead, I have decided to also choose a bible verse to accompany my theme for 2020. I wanted to choose a message that I can keep close to my heart - one promise that I can think about and meditate on among all of the other promises of God.

Deliverance

Welcome 2020! Welcome to a new decade, filled with endless opportunities waiting to happen. Many pages waiting to be written, full of colour, emotion, beautiful experiences, lasting memories, photographs, lessons and victories. For each new year, I like to choose a theme for myself. It can be anything, from a word to a verse, song lyrics, a quote or even a poem that I write on the very front page of my journal. I do this because I beli ...
